Goldfinger (ska punk/pop punk band)
Goldfinger is an American punk rock/ska punk band that formed in 1994 in Los Angeles, California. Currently, the band is composed of vocalist/guitarist John Feldmann, and is more or less a solo outlet for the singer. He often recruits other members to play with him from bands that he has worked with previously. The original band is widely considered to have been a contributor to the movement of third-wave ska, a revitalization in the popularity of ska music which occurred during the mid-1990s. However, the releases of Open Your Eyes and Disconnection Notice, have been more commonly placed in the punk-rock genre. Apart from the band's music, Goldfinger is also noted for their political activism, particularly in the area of animal rights.
