Refused is a hardcore punk band originating from Umeå, Sweden, formed in 1991. The band's final lineup comprised its founding members, vocalist Dennis Lyxzén and drummer David Sandström, as well as guitarists Kristofer Steen and Jon Brännström. Their lyrics were often of a non-conformist and politically far-left nature. The band released five EPs and three albums before initially splitting up in 1998.
There are at least two groups titled Unbroken. 1. Unbroken was a hardcore band from San Diego, California. They were influential in the Southern California hardcore scene during the mid-to-late 1990s. The band chose the name Unbroken because they wanted to emphasize their dedication to the straight edge philosophy of drug abstinence. However, most of the members have since given up this belief.
There are at least three bands called Trainwreck. One from Germany, one from the US and one from Australia: TRAINWRECK from Germany (Aachen, Bremen, Göttingen) is a DIY punk/hardcore/screamo band and consists of actual and former members of Eaves, Glasses, the 244GL and Engrave.

They've played five European, one UK, one Japan and two US tours in the last couple of years.
