MDC
MDC
MDC (Millions of Dead Cops) is an American punk rock band formed in Austin, Texas in 1981. The band was subsequently based in San Francisco, California, and are currently based in Portland, Oregon. Originally formed as The Stains before changing their name, the band also changed their name to a different initialism of MDC with every new record released. They play fast hardcore punk music espousing far-left sociopolitical ideals, with singer Dave Dictor expressing his animal rights, gay rights, transgender rights, pro-racial equality and anti-capitalist convictions.

MDC eventually released material through ex-Dead Kennedys singer Jello Biafra's independent Alternative Tentacles label. In the 1990s, Dictor published editorials for the internationally distributed fanzine Maximumrocknroll. MDC's initial run ended in 1995, and the band spent five years on hiatus before Dictor returned in 2000 with new band members.

Corrupted Morals
The Corrupted Morals were formed about 1986 in Palmdale, California and was one of the original 924 Gilman Street bands.

They originally consisted of Rick (vocals), Dan (guitar), Ray (guitar), Roman (bass), and Jose (drums). Their first release was a 7", called the 'Chet' EP.

The band later added Joel (bass - only for the 'Chet' 7") and Larry LaLonde (ex Possessed - joined after 'Chet'). Ray left at some point after the 'Chet' EP was released. Rick, Dan, Ray, Joel (substituting for Roman) and Jose recorded the 'Chet' EP in June of 1987, but wasn't released until January 1988 on Lookout! Records. It was the second Lookout! release.

Later, they also released on Lookout! their 'Cheese It' LP. 'Cheese It' featured Rick, Roman, Jose, Dan, and Larry. They also produced a very limited record, 'Think About It' 7" on Very Small Records, VSR 01. Corrupted Morals were also on several compilations. They broke up sometime in 1990. Larry Lalonde then went on to play in Primus.
