Time Flies was an American straight edge hardcore punk band from Virginia in the late 1990s and the height of the youth crew revival (note that there was also a Finnish pop punk group called Time Flies in 1990 - 1997). They shared members with the band Count Me Out, also from Virginia. Originally on Teamwork Records, and Malfunction Records, they signed to Indecision Records in 1999 to release their first and only full-length, On Our Way which was recorded and produced by Brian McTernan at Salad Days. The band played a lot on the East Coast, and also did 2 West Coast tours as well. They toured with bands like Death By Stereo, Ten Yard Fight, Count Me Out, Faded Grey, Good Clean Fun, In My Eyes, Fastbreak, and many others. In 2000, they re-released Can't Change the Past, which now included both the Teamwork Records release of Can't Change the Past EP, and the Malfunction Records release on one CD as well as including some comp songs they had previously recorded. They were best known for songs like Play the Fool, Highfives & Stagedives , and Hollow Inside. The band broke up in 2002 ending on a positive note playing the 2002 Posi-Numbers Festival in Wilkes-Barre, PA, and final show in their home area of Richmond, VA. In 2004, PETA2 released a DVD called Highfives & Stagedives documenting underground bands that had chosen animal-friendly and/or cruelty-free lifestyles.

<i>T.S.O.L.</i> (EP) 1981 EP by T.S.O.L.

T.S.O.L. is the eponymously titled debut EP by the American hardcore punk band T.S.O.L., released in 1981 through Posh Boy Records. Its fast tempos and politically radical lyrics established the band as a major force in the southern California hardcore scene of the time. T.S.O.L. quickly moved away from leftist political subject matter, however, shifting in a gothic rock direction and changing labels to Frontier Records for their full-length album Dance with Me (1981). This led to a dispute with Posh Boy owner Robbie Fields, who claimed the band owed his label another EP. The two parties eventually reached a settlement in which Posh Boy gained the rights to T.S.O.L.'s 1982 EP Weathered Statues, combining it with the debut EP in the 1987 compilation album Thoughts of Yesterday: 1981–1982. Nitro Records purchased the master recordings from Posh Boy in 1997 and re-released the two EPs as the compilation T.S.O.L. / Weathered Statues.
