Their self-titled debut albumflourished in 1993 with much acclaimed success, and it was all done with Tim's careful leadership,as well as a struggling trio. After searching for a second guitar player in 1993, Matt met LarsFrederiksen and he was added to the band on guitar and vocals, to round out the line up.Rancid's musical style blends punk and hardcore with ska, reggae, rocksteady, and minor elementsof dub and funk. Among mainstream audiences, Rancid are best-known for "Ruby Soho" and "TimeBomb" from the 1995 recording ...And Out Come the Wolves.Rancid was very popular throughout the 1990s, with the band touring constantly from 1993 through1998. They have released 6 full-length albums, the first 4 through the independent label, EpitaphRecords, along with numerous 7" vinyls and singles. Following the success of Let's Go, whichgarnered gold status in the U.S. with 500,000 copies sold, the band was pursued by several majorlabels, including Madonna's Maverick Records; Rancid chose to stick with Epitaph despite theseoffers.Rancid's self-titled 2000 album was released on Hellcat Records, and their 2003 record,Indestructible, was released by Hellcat Records with Warner Brothers distrubuting the record.Their songs and albums are based on hard times ("7 Years Down," "Hyena"), world issues ("RiggedOn A Fix," "Brixton"), once-in-a-lifetime encounters ("David Courtney", "Red Hot Moon"),friendship ("Old Friend," "GGF"), unity ("As one,"Avenues and Alleyways") and love ("She'sAutomatic", "Corazon de Oro"). In November of 2006, Brett Reed left Rancid for personal reasonsand was replaced by ex "The Used" drummer Brandon Steineckert.
