Extreme is a heavy metal and blues rock band from Massachusetts formed in 1985. The band lends the listener a sound that blends the genre of glam metal with the shredding guitar work from thrash metal. Being asked about their style, Extreme categorized their music as 'Funky Metal'.
Extreme released four studio albums before disbanding in 1996. The group reformed for special concerts before finally reuniting in 2007 to resume touring and recording.
