Blood for Blood was a Hardcore punk/Oi! band from Charlestown, Massachusetts. They formed in 1995 as a reaction reaction to the existing heavy music scene in Boston. They are regarded as an extremely nihilistic and aggressive band. In 1997 they were signed to Victory Records. Their sound is heavily influenced by Sheer Terror, Breakdown, Carnivore and Raw Deal.
In mid-2006, Blood for Blood's song "Ain't Like You (Wasted Youth II)" was used as backing music for a trailer for the pro-war documentary, "Young Americans" [], made by Pat Dollard and U.S. Marines in Iraq. The trailer featured numerous images of anti-war protesters and icons, at which the song's aggressive message seemed targeted. It is unclear whether Pat Dollard had sought permission from the band for the use of the song, though founding band member Rob Lind is also known for his anti-war band Ramallah (band).
