Vandaalit is a punk band from Hyvinkää, Finland. The birth of Vandaalit can be placed somewhere around the mid-70's. The original band, Hard-Boiled, had a change of drummer and they happened to hear the Ramones album "Leave Home" on the radio. From then on the music they played started getting more straight-forward and faster. Before changing the lyrics into Finnish the band was briefly named Schlachthof Fünf. Band split up first time in 1981 and reformed in 1991.
