Tragedy is a crust punk band originally from Memphis, Tennessee. The band formed in 2000 from members of the influential modern hardcore punk bands His Hero is Gone and Deathreat.

Tragedy’s music is characterized by unrelenting, heavy hardcore punk sound, punctuated by melodic interludes and downshifts in tempo, often with lyrics containing apocalyptic themes and imagery. The band and many of its contemporaries, such as From Ashes Rise, Severed Head of State and Remains of the Day, have created a recognizable sound inside the crust punk genre.

Tragedy have stated they are influenced by early hardcore punk bands, many in the d-beat style, including Discharge as well as taking inspiration from Japanese hardcore groups such as Deathside. Their name is taken from a 1994 Disclose LP.

Tragedy’s albums have met with critical acclaim within the DIY hardcore community, and have had a large positive impact on the popularity of crust punk music that shares a similar sound. The band has had a cult following and celebrity status in some hardcore circles. They give little information about themselves in promotional materials and include minimal information in album inserts.
