Municipal Waste is a thrash band from Richmond, Virginia. They are known for their loud, drunk, party atmosphere and rowdy show attendees. Show-goers are known for crowd-surfing with boogie boards and are sometimes entertained by a roadie in a wizard costume.
The Art of Partying defined “party thrash” in the new millennium. It not only launched Municipal Waste’s career, but revved up interest in thrash and inspired a fresh wave of youthful new bands. This one was a Hall of Famer out of the gate; it just took us a few years to make it official.
