Blood for Blood ist eine Hardcoreband aus Charlestown, Massachusetts, die ihre Musikrichtung "White Trash Hardcore Rock 'n' Roll" nennt. Im Jahre 1995 gründeten Eric "Buddha" Medina (Vocals), "White Trash" Rob Lind (Guitar and Vocals) und Mike Mahoney (Drums) die Band, seit 1997 veröffentlichen sie auf Victory Records.

Anfangs spielten sie wie ihre Lieblingsbands Hardcore. Auf neueren Veröffentlichungen werden aber auch Stilelemente aus anderen angrenzenden Musikrichtungen verarbeitet. Die Texte von Blood for Blood sind sehr gesellschaftsfeindlich geschrieben und beziehen sich auf Erfahrungen, welche die Band machte. Außerdem baute Blood for Blood eine eigene Fangemeinde um sich auf, die Wasted Youth Crew. Dazu knüpften sie auch viele Kontakte mit z.B. den auch aus Boston stammenden Dropkick Murphys und diversen anderen Bands wie The Bruisers deren Song "Bloodshed" auf dem Album "Outlaw Anthems" als Cover vertreten war.. Rob und Eric machten auf Madballs Demonstrating My Style die Backing Vocals.

In den meisten Songs verarbeitet die Band schlechte Erfahrungen und ihre schwere Kindheit ("They wanna break me down, hope I can hold my ground", "All I see are little MTV babies. That ain't the real world I forced to see, that ain't the real world at all"), ("Have you ever prayed to the night sky - under one of them cold street lights? Watch another stolen car drive-by - lost your hope and said 'This is where i die!'").

In den gesellschaftsfeindlichen Texten wird die Gesellschaft im Ganzen "kritisiert". ("Fuck you and fuck society too", "I turned my back on society, when society turned its back on me", "I'd rather be a king of nothing, than a servant in a sick society")

Rob Lind hat die Band Ramallah, zur Zeit als bei Blood for Blood wenig lief, als Nebenprojekt ins Leben gerufen.

Ein weiteres Merkmal von Blood for Blood sind ihre äußerst loyalen Fans, die sich unter der Fahne der Wasted Youth Crew zusammengeschlossen haben.

Blood for Blood coverte diverse Hooligan- und Skinhead-Songs wie "Goin' down the bar" von Wretched ones und "Ultra Violence" von The Oppressed
