The seeds of Rancid were in the influential early-'90s Californian punk-ska outfit Operation Ivy. Two members of Ivy persevered to form a band that more explicitly nodded to their roots in vintage punk. Heavily influenced by the Clash, Rancid took the '90s punk scene by storm with an uncompromising sound that was nevertheless more musically and lyrically sophisticated than many of their peers. Though they achieved mainstream success, Rancid always remained loyal to their street-level punk credo.
