Genre - street-punk rock-n-rollYear established - 2005Brief History of band - In late July 2005, American Barfight was born. A three piece band of veteran punk motherfuckers playing their own blend of street rock n roll, like a curbjob to the face they attack fast and furious and will stay with your forever. From agressive streetpunk to good ole fashioned rock n roll, after one listen they will either have you ready to fuck, fight or slam back a bottle of whiskey. You ain't seen nothing like this before.
