D.O.A. - All is not lost

One of the founders of this Canadian hardcore punk band from Vancouver, British Columbia, Joey 'Shithead' Keithley, is more concerned with his record company nowadays than he is with D.O.A. performances.

Shithead's shop is called Sudden Death Records and that gives us reason to believe that D.O.A. stands for Dead On Arrival, a phrase that does not make things look any better if jotted down in an ambulance on a tag intended for your big toe.

D.O.A. is seen as one of the procreators of hardcore punk, together with bands like Black Flag, Bad Brains, Teen Idles and Minor Threat.

Confusing: there is also an English band called Dead On Arrival; in that case the abbreviation is written without dots every now and then (DOA).
