Drummer from United States of America

Branden Steineckert (born April 21, 1978), is the drummer for the punk rock band Rancid. He was previously the drummer of The Used, but it was announced on September 12, 2006 that he was no longer a part of the band. Branden was born in Pocatello, Idaho and was raised in a Mormon family which moved more than twenty times during his youth. He picked up skateboarding at an early age due to the fact his friends skated. When Branden was 11 years old, his father, Neil Steineckert, committed suicide, so he picked up drumming as a way to release his anger and to relieve him of his troubles. Branden learned to play the drums because his late father had played drums at around his age. He was a founding member of Strange Itch, a band that would later become The Used, and would go on to achieve success, earning a platinum album. On November 3, 2006, it was announced that Branden would be playing drums for Rancid until the end of their tour. He replaced their drummer of 15 years, Brett Reed.
