Doc Martens and fishnets, ninjas and zombies, crunchy guitar and funky drums, what more could you want? Bad Mary plays high-energy, danceable pop-punk that’s fast, loud, and fun.
Drawing influence from the likes of Blondie and The Ramones, Green Day and No Doubt, Bad Mary has created their own strain of pop-punk that takes you back to New York in the 70’s but with a modern vibe. Their first album, Better Days, garnered three first-round ballot Grammy nominations, for Best Rock Performance (Ninja, Forget About It) and Best Rock Song (Ninja). Both ‘Forget About It’ and ‘Don’t Know Where the Line Is’ were played during the 2014 NBA finals at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC. The band makes their home on Long Island, New York and have played classic venues such as Arlene’s Grocery, the Bowery Electric, the Trash Bar, and Revolution. They have scored airplay on both U.S. and U.K. radio and are currently writing songs for their next album. Bad Mary will be touring the U.K. in the summer of 2015.
In an age where music is barely music anymore it’s awesome to have a group like Bad Mary come across my desk for review. No voice overs, no overbearing background vocals, just straight up punk riffs topped with the sweet sound of a female punk vocal . . . Fun seems to flow from their veins.

The band created an energy on the stage that set the bar high for the night . . . [Amanda] Mac had everyone’s attention until the last note.

“Crispy crunchy poppy punk. Rarely is Pop Punk this much fun, or this deftly executed.”
