The Descendents are an American punk rock band formed in 1978 in Manhattan Beach, California. They are seen as one of the most influential punk acts of 1980's and are considered one of the pioneers of modern day pop punk, skate punk, and even melodic hardcore. The Descendents were formed in 1978 by guitarist Frank Navetta, bassist Tony Lombardo and drummer Bill Stevenson. Their first release was the new wavish single "Ride the Wild/It's a Hectic World". In 1980 they enlisted Stevenson's old school friend Milo Aukerman as a singer, and reappeared as a punk band, becoming a major player in the hardcore scene developing in Los Angeles at the time. Their first release with Aukerman, 1981's Fat EP, was a furious six-minute barrage of teen angst and humour. Their debut album the following year, Milo Goes to College, was more melodic than many other hardcore records of the time. They sang about being (and wanting to be) rejected, girls, fishing, and other emotionally sensitive subjects. Songwriting was shared among the band members.
