Unbroken was a hardcore band from San Diego, California. They were influential in the Southern California hardcore scene during the mid-to-late 1990s. The band chose the name Unbroken because they wanted to emphasize their dedication to the straight edge philosophy of drug abstinence. However, most of the members have since given up this belief.
The band’s members were also in the groups Struggle, Swing Kids , Kill Holiday, Julia, Some Girls, Smooth Man Automatic, Johnny Angel, Stabbed By Words, and Over My Dead Body before, during, and after Unbroken’s existence.
Guitarist Eric Allen committed suicide 3 years after the break up of the band. The band reformed soon after Eric’s death for 1 show as a benefit to Eric’s family.
