* AlbumTitleDrop: ''...And Out Come The Wolves'' has it's title dropped in "Junkie Man". Although really they got the title from a poem that appeared in Jim Carroll's ''The Basketball Diaries'', then had Carroll himself recite excerpts of said poem as SpokenWordInMusic.

Added DiffLines:

* LeadBassist: Matt Freeman is Types A, C, and D, as his aggressive and technical style forms a big part of their sound and he's probably closer to the FaceOfTheBand than Armstrong is with bassists.

* GenreThrowback: The 2000 self-titled album. After two albums experimenting with ska, reggae and other influences, this album was a stark, straight-ahead HardcorePunk album. It's more akin to 80s Hardcore than the first two they did were.

* GenreRoulette: Most notably on ''Life Won't Wait''- it's predominantly based within SkaPunk territory, but it finds time to explore numerous other genres.
* HardcorePunk: Primarily their first two albums and 2000's second SelfTitledAlbum; occasionally shows up elsewhere, too.



** To a lesser extent, "Daly City Train" and "Old Friend" count, too- they're upbeat {{Ska}} songs about heartaches, after all. The band does this pretty often, actually.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: The more Hardcore-oriented stuff is mostly in the 6-7 range; the PopPunk / SkaPunk stuff they're best known for is usually around a 5-6; the pure {{Ska}}, {{Reggae}} and acoustic songs they've occasionally done are in the 3-4 range, mostly.
* NewSoundAlbum: Several. The most notable are:
** ''...And Out Come The Wolves'', which introduced a heavy {{Ska}} influence to the band's sound after two albums of (admittedly more bass heavy and poppy than usual) [[HardcorePunk Hardcore]].
** ''Life Won't Wait'' continues the SkaPunk approach of their previous album,while also experimenting with {{Reggae}}, {{Rockabilly}}, {{Blues}} and Latin music within that framework.
** The second SelfTitledAlbum, which returned them to HardcorePunk territory after the GenreRoulette of ''Life Won't Wait''.
** ''Indestructible'', which splits the difference between the SkaPunk, GenreRoulette and HardcorePunk approaches. They more-or-less did this on their next two albums, too.



** They have a few others like this, too- the stickers aren't there for
* SelfTitledAlbum: Two of'em, actually- their debut in '93 and another in 2000 that was a "return to their roots" album or sorts.



* SkaPunk: On some (but not all) of their albums. It's generally the sound they're best known for.



* Throwback: The 2000 self-titled album. After two albums experimenting with ska, reggae and other influences, this album was a stark, straight-ahead hardcore punk album.

** I'm not sure about this one- Lars sings lead and plays lead just as often as Tim does, and Matt is very well known, especially among fellow bass players.

Rancid is a punk band the [[SanFrancisco Bay Area]] who are partially responsible for the 90s punk revival. Their songs often are influenced by ska elements. This is largely due to bassist Matt Freeman and Guitarist/Singer Tim Armstrong being former members of the ska band Operation Ivy. They were joined by Lars Frederiksen and Brett Reed, who left the band in 2006 and was replaced by Branden Steineckert.
