Nominee – 1996 6th Annual LA Music Awards
The Atlanta alternative band Big Hate was led by singer/guitarist Brian Stanger and his bassist brother Adam, New York natives who formed the group in Florida with drummer Stephan Panas. Upon moving to Georgia, they added guitarist Rusty Cobb; a relentless touring schedule built up their fanbase and also brought Big Hate to the attention of the A&M subsidiary Flip Records, which issued their debut LP You’re Soaking in It in 1998.
Adam Stanger is an American musician best known as the bassist for the band Comes with the Fall. He has also played in the band Big Hate alongside his brother, singer-guitarist Brian Stanger, and Melt, later renamed The Young Royals, with singer-guitarist Eric Bradley.
