Dropdead is a hardcore punk band based in Providence, Rhode Island. They exist since 1991. They talk about animal rights, pacifism, and anti-authoritarianism. The band members are supporters of the ALF. Their name is derived from the demo of the American band Siege. They influenced many hardcore and crust bands and have adhered to the DIY punk ethic throughout their extended career. The band's songs are generally short and very fast-paced, with few lasting longer than one minute. Other famous hardcore and crust bands like Nasum have covered some of their songs.
