about

Greaser Garage Punk from NYC harkening back to all of the great moments in rock n' roll history mixing elements of Elvis, Ramones & The Devil Dogs.

"Loved by garage freaks, rock and roll purists, and pop-punk kids alike, the almighty Heartdrops ruled the greaser punk universe throughout the late 1990s!" - Lord Rutledge

"The Heartdrops sound like if the guys from Lords of Flatbush had a knife fight with the Ramones circa 1976 in the alley behind CBGB and those left standing formed a band." - Jay Castro

"Of all of the great bands from the '90s punk rock scene, few merit reexamination under a modern-day light more than The Heartdrops. The New York City trio released two albums and several singles between 1995 and '99. Mixing '50s rock and roll influences with the best elements of The Clash and Ramones, The Heartdrops were the undisputed kings of greaser punk in the pre millennium years. No band was better at bridging the divide between the garage, punk, pop, and rock and roll crowds. Along the way, The Heartdrops appeared on some of the coolest DIY labels of the '90s (Stiff Pole, Break-Up!, Melted Records) and tore up live venues great and small all across the U.S.A. It's criminal to me that this band is not more talked about, but perhaps that will change next year when Rum Bar Records releases the definitive Heartdrops retrospective. In the way of a teaser, Rum Bar has released a free digital EP featuring three non-album tracks from the band's heyday. The Heartdrops were the flagship band of the Melted Records roster, so now it all comes full circle as they again work with Malibu Lou." - Faster And Louder

"Awesome. I remember loving this band. I’m sure I saw them in Green Bay but I vividly remember a show at a VFW hall in the middle of nowhere WI in the late 90s and they couldn’t believe the 25 or 50 cent beers there." - Justin Perkins, Mystery Room Mastering
