Against All Authority began the punk rock fight in 1992, when they decided to form a D.I.Y. band that would really live up to their ideals. Made up of vocalist/bassist Danny Lore, guitarist Joe Koontz, trombonist Allan Leavell, and drummer Jason Letterman, the band began to record their own singles and albums. When they were ready to tour with their aggressive, often political, punk/ska sound, they chose to book the tour themselves, even going so far as to silk-screen their own shirts for merchandise. Despite their growing popularity in the indie world, they chose to continue doing everything themselves, becoming quite popular with the punk rock elite who began to pay attention to them. They released Destroy What Destroys You before signing to Hopeless Records in the late '90s; their label debut, All Fall Down, came out in 1998.
