The influential Swedish hardcore band Refused was formed in 1991 by vocalist Dennis LyxzÃ©n, guitarists Jon BrÃ¤nnstrÃ¶m and Kristofer Steen, bassist Magnus HÃ¶ggren, and drummer David SandstrÃ¶m. Debuting in 1993 with the EP This Is the New Deal, the group issued the full-length This Just Might Be...the Truth later that same year. The Everlasting EP followed in 1994, and in 1995 Refused returned with another EP, Refused Loves Randy. After 1996's Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent, they issued the EP Rather Be Dead; in the wake of completing 1998's classic The Shape of Punk to Come, Refused disbanded, unable to reconcile their anarchist leanings with a career in music. ~ Jason AnkenyPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
