7 Seconds

7 Seconds was a mainstay of the hardcore scene in 80's and beyond--an inspiration to stay positive during a time when there wasn't a lot to be positive about.

I wrote this brief bit about them in my novel.

They have just announced they're breaking up, but we'll keep listening to what they had to say.

Now he lowered the needle onto the record. The first song began in a quick blur of guitars, the drums as fast as a blender. You wanna be the way I am but you could never understand. The singer's voice was earnest and fierce. He sang so fast the lyrics were a jumble of syllables run together, as if there were only so much time to say what he had to say before people stopped listening.
