The Rats are a furious, fast and catchy band with the most pissed of lyrics and annihilating live act. They try to do something real, with the feeling and adrenalin of 80's hardcore but with a new sound and they do their best to constantly evolve and not be stuck in a certain folder of bands. The Rats will deliver, that's a promise.

The Rats started playing together six years ago out of boredom but at this time under the name Rabid Grannies. Everything was well and fine for many years but as the people in the band got older and their lifes changed so did their music. Rabid Grannies broke up spring 2006, feeling that something was about to happen that they couldn´t back up.
