A reference to its hometown of Orange County and the toxic herbicide used in the Vietnam War, Agent Orange is a trio noted as one of the first bands to fuse punk rock and surf music. Formed in 1979, the band has gone through many lineups, but has consistently remained active and stuck by its punk morals, refusing to sell out like many of its contemporaries. Though the band members claimed they didn't skate, Agent Orange was highly influential in the development of skate punk and its songs are often used in skateboard video games today. Because Agent Oranges appeals to such a broad variety of punk fans, the group has a devout audience around the world that continues to grow.

intercollegiate teams of the University of California, Riverside. A Division I school, UC Riverside competes in the Big West Conference.

The Expendables is a band bred from the skate, surf, and party ethos of music made popular in the late 1990s by bands from Orange County, Long Beach and Santa Cruz. The group's releases are laden with upbeat beach grooves, but with a biting ska edge. Fittingly, the Santa Cruz band signed to Stoopid Records, owned by the band Slighty Stoopid, in the early 2000s.
Natural Vibrations is a ska band from Kahalu'u, Hawaii that combines elements of classic reggae, rock and traditional Hawaiian music to craft a root-based sound. Formed in 1993, the six-piece outfit released its debut album Balls Rolling, in 1996 and has since garnered fervent acclaim in its home state as one of Hawaii's premier reggae acts. By the time Natural Vibrations released its seventh studio album Got This Music, in 2011, its music had caught on in the mainland of the US, allowing the band to embark on its first national tour in 2013.
Mixing traditional folk genres together with an almost punk rock style swagger, The Devil Makes Three is one of the most popular bands in the modern roots music revival. The three piece formed in Santa Cruz, California, deciding to utilize a raw, stripped-down instrumentation setup of just guitar, upright bass and banjo. On its 2002 self-titled debut, The Devil Makes Three displays its knack for crafting old-timey bluegrass jams full of rockabilly elements and high-energy showmanship. The trio's tales of hard drinking and soul searching have struck a chord with fans of several different genres throughout the US and beyond.
Formed in 1973 in San Francisco under the moniker Yesterday & Today, after The Beatles song, Y & T created lively classic rock in the vein of AC/DC and KISS--two groups that the band has opened for on tour. While it had an impressive live show, the band wasn't able to transfer this energy to the studio, and thus never attained the commercial success and the rock stardom it hoped for. While it did receive a reasonable amount of international fame, the band finally disbanded in disappointment in the early 1990s. With a resurgence of interest in its particular style of music, however, Y & T reformed in 2010, releasing reissues, recording a new album, and touring extensively.
