Twenty Second Century
22nd Century was founded by former friends Duane Chaos and Tim Plommer with the addition of drummer Glen G on the West side of Vancouver, Canada. True to their roots, the trio sticks mostly with driving, hard rock 'Ramones' style punchy beats with melodies mocking everything from TV (Stevie Guide) to Super Heros. The song 509 is about a Superhero (but not the comic book kind) who likes to smoke and drink all the time but really doesn't have time to fight crime. The trio are veterans of the West Coast music scene and have played in various other bands including Anthill, Ace Koden, Stress Factor 9 (alongside DOA founder Randy Rampage) and folk punk F.L.U. They are wild on stage and just like to play their own way as well as covering songs by others. Major influences were Nirvana, Sex Pistols, Alice in Chains, AC/DC, Sound Garden, AntHill, Van Halen, Jane's Addiction, Dead Boys, Tool, Oasis, DOA, Ace Koden, Rush, The Cult, Army of Anyone and Theory of a Deadman.
