Skarhead is an American hardcore punk band from New York City, founded and fronted by Lord Ezec aka Danny Diablo (of Crown Of Thornz). The group is considered the originators of thugcore music, a subgenre of hardcore punk "full of relentless breakdowns and throwdown-ready posturing". They have toured with Gwar, Hatebreed, and Earth Crisis. They have been cited as an influence by Deez Nuts and Fucked Up. They have signed on with Force 5 Records to drop their newest album, "Generators of Violence" in early 2022.
