Ken Chinn, AKA Chi Pig, front-man and lyricist of Canadian hardcore punk band SNFU has passed away at age 57. SNFU formed in Edmonton in 1981 and quickly became a mainstay on the Canadian punk scene. International acclaim followed after relocation to Vancouver and three albums that were released on Epitaph Records. I was blown away by Chi’s stage presence when I saw the band supporting Bad Religion on an Australian tour in the 90s. Chi Pig has inspired many, many people globally. RIP.
