A very great Southern California punk band, which brought us really fast, melodic, hardcore skatepunk riddims, thus paving the way for a lot of '90s and 2000's punk bands like Blink 182, Good Charlotte, Sum 41 and the lot. The only difference between Descendents and current skatepunk bands is Descendents aren't sellouts! Urban Dictionary

Descendents...definately one of the best punk bands (or pop punk for those that demand everything be labled) ever! Catchy as hell but still fast and aggressive! If you like Buzzcocks, The Queers, NOFX, old Greenday, Bad Religion, or anything like that, Descendents are for you! Descendents subjects include: Coffee, food, maturing (or lack of) and , but of course, girls. Descendents aren't like other punk bands. Don't expect to hear simmilaraties to blink, MxPx, or Sum 41. And no, I'm not gonna go on a rant about how much those bands suck (actually I'm pretty into old blink). If you wanna hear good Descendents listen to: Bikeage Hope I'm the One Coolidge or just pick up a copy of Somery (very good CD) Urban Dictionary

A word to describe any race that is passed down from an Immigrant to an Born Citizen in one Country. Urban Dictionary
