This hardcore punk band from San Jose centers around a crew of accomplished skateboarders. Every band member since its inception is or has been a pro-skateboarder. One of the more famous members of The Faction is Steve Caballero, the same guy who makes the Full-Cab and Half-Cab shoes with Vans. Caballero rocks out on the bass as well as the guitar to create an electrifying punk-rock sound. The band broke up in 2005, but they're back to rip your ear drums in half.
