Frequently compared to the likes of Sublime and Pepper, Baltimore’s Can’t Hang began playing punky reggae party music in 1999.
Equally influenced by Bob Marley and Bad Religion, Can't Hang spent time gigging around their hometown before they released their Sound in Time EP in 2001. By the time of their 2002 full-length debut, Coast to Coast, they had earned a loyal local following and had begun expanding their fan base with shows up and down the East Coast. The band's dynamic live show was captured on 2004’s Live in Charm City, with the studio album Blood Sweat and Beers following in 2007. Ride the Lightrail arrived in 2009, with cover artwork that parodied Metallica’s Ride the Lightning. ~ David Jeffries
