of page to come: This is a unofficial Refused fansite that has
been online since 1999! This new version was launched in January 2007 and
is probably the 6:th version or something like that. I don't remember.
But still, this is the longest running Refused site on the net and
my ambition is to keep it up for many years to come! This is the largest
and most informative site you will find about Refused.
The excellent band Refused were the leading hardcore band in Scandinavia
when they were around. They were well known for following the uncompromising
"Straight edge" and for fighting for the animal rights.
But mostly, they were known for being the revolutionary hardworking band
from Umeå, Sweden that always had something important to say. It
was all about fighting against the capitalism, to overthrow the class system
and to fight opressions of all kinds. Their thoughts and opinions were
spread through their lyrics, manifestos, interviews and on their many intense
and powerful live shows. And by recording classic songs such as "Pump
the brakes", "Everlasting",
"Rather be dead" and the
"New noise" they have most definitely put their name in
the history book...
design of this site is built upon one picture only, the one you see above
with the cartoons. I guess the picture might look familiar to you? Well
if you have the early version of "The first conspiracy" CD with
(International) Noise Conspiracy you should notice that that these
cartoons are featured in the artwork. But the design is actually a rip-off
of a very nice Refused shirt, probably the coolest Refused
shirt I have ever seen. So I thought that it would be cool to design this
homepage after that piece of work.
