The Battalion of Saints were one of the most legendary bands of San Diego's early Hardcore Punk Scene. Their songs were nonstop blasts of adrenaline and raw power. The Batts were one of the most furious and nihilistic bands in all of Southern California in the early to mid 80's: in 5 years the band accomplished unforgettable performances leaving a deep impression and influence on the Punk Rock scene. The original band broke up in 1985. The mainstay of the band is the singer, George Anthony. In 1995, George reformed the band with his friend Terry Bones (Discharge, Broken Bones, UK Subs).
