Brutal Knights

Brutal Knights are a Canadian punk band formed in 2006 in Toronto, Ontario. The band has been described[by whom?] as having a "raw" punk rock-and-roll sound reminiscent of early-1980s hardcore. Brutal Knights are also known for their humorous lyrics, written by vocalist Nick Flanagan.[1] Flanagan is also a comedian, and sometimes performs stand-up at their shows. According to Flanagan, guitarist Jon Sharron writes most of the music.[2]
