green rage has no connection to Raid. GR was from NY and Raid was from TN. GR's vocalist was an active member in Green Peace (was the vice president) until he was kicked out because the group did not agree with his methods of direct action. Raids vocalist broke edge and became a Rastafarian.
"they were hardline and members went on to form Hardline pioneers: Raid." Can someone please provide a citation for this? Not only can I not find anything about Green Rage being hardline, but it seems highly improbable that members (especially plural) would go on to be in Raid, given that Green Rage was from Syracuse and Raid was from Tennessee.
