Fact is, people LOST THEIR SHIT when they heard these Louisville teens for the first time and with good reason. They were melodic, anthemic enough to engage those without a passing interest.

Squirrel Bait was an American punk rock band from Louisville, Kentucky active from 1983 to 1988. Squirrel Bait's dense, moody, melodic hardcore sound, featuring pronounced tempo shifts, foreshadowed the grunge sound of the late 1980s as well as math rock. Squirrel Bait, along with Hüsker Dü, are often noted as precursors to the emocore ("emotional hardcore") sound that arose from the . hardcore punk scene with bands like Rites of Spring, Beefeater and Fugazi.

A typical American Post-Hardcore band like many at the time, Squirrel Bait released an ignorable amount of music (just 42 minutes). Their eponymous EP is typical of its time, complete with imprecise guitar solos and stereotypical production. We think there’s better in the whole scene.
