South Florida, a region once known for its humidity and magnetic pull for retirees from across the nation. Now this region is known for its high occurrence rate of hurricanes and home to socio-politico rage-core unit, Remembering Never. This five man unit composed of Mean Pete (vocals), Grease (guitar), Norm (guitar), Aldo (bass) and Danny (drums) is uncompromising hardcore with a message. From a cynical eye towards those who govern in all realms to messages of a vegetarian lifestyle, Remembering Never isn’t afraid to ruffle feathers. Incorporating metallic speed and ire into their guitars, shards of melody and chaotic arrangements that threaten to collapse their sound is a combination of technical skill and primal aggression.

Remembering Never had composed a great deal of their first full-length album She Looks so Good In Red and Pete had almost no time to compose lyrics. Musically the album which was released on Ferret Music in 2002 was angrier and more severe than the demo sessions. Lyrically Mean Pete claims it was a joke that only the band members got, as over the top narratives talked about violence against loved one’s and severing of relationships, much like Glassjaw’s first album. Like the aforementioned band, who has since taken a much different approach in their lyrics, Pete regrets anyone thinking that he was serious about any of those lyrics or believing that he advocated abusive acts towards women.

Tour-wise Remembering Never was finally getting out on the road including a stint with Suicide Note as well as tours with On Broken Wings, Evergreen Terrace, Between The Buired & Me, Alexisonfire, and Every Time I Die. When working on material for their next album Women And Children Die First, Pete decided to focus on issues that not only affected him but that would be hardcore anthems. As he wrote in the album’s liner notes "Being in a hardcore band, it is my privilege and my responsibility to share ideas." As Carl Severson of Ferret claims "That album is really their defining moment. The demo and the first album might as well have been a different band. This album was more extreme, more pissed and more potent." The second full-length was released in 2004, the significance of the title Women And Children Die First was supposedly the working title of a Slayer album that they were forced to drop by their label. Remembering Never’s album became their signature statement and went on to sell over 70,000 albums worldwide within two years. The album was included in the "Best Of 2004" list for Decibel Magazine.

Several hurricanes and tattoos later, Remembering Never has emerged as one of the most respected voices of the metal-core scene. As of Fall 05, the band entered Planet Z Studios in Massachusetts with wonder producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Throwdown, Shadows Fall) to record their forthcoming full-length for a spring 06 release titled God Save Us. It promises to be the most savage and heaviest sounding record to date. It also does a good job of balancing personal lyrics with the worldly messages of the band. The Goddamn Busy Signal is a song that deals with Gay rights. As Mean Pete says "This is not just someone’s opinion on someone else’s lifestyle, it’s about religion and government sticking their nose where it doesn’t belong." The ironically titled White Devil is about Pete and other members of the band who grew up broke, stealing to get by. "It’s really about an circle of life that it is difficult to break out of, being born into poverty and how it places a limit of what you can accomplish." Selma named for the character in the film Dancer In The Dark is about the power that women have that is underestimated every day. Pete comments "We are the most negatively positive band out there. We’re really positive but we present it in a negative way." With the release of God Save Us 2006 promises to be the year that mainstream takes notice of the band who live by their underground roots.
