The Baseball Furies were a four-piece punk/garage band formed in Buffalo, New York. The band took its name from a gang of the same name in the 1979 film The Warriors and wore similar costumes in their early live shows. The Baseball Furies' "This Is The World's Greatest Rock & Roll Record" and the Blowtops "Voodoo Alley" were the first releases from Big Neck Records, an independent record label started in Buffalo in 1995. The Furies helped put together a two-day garage punk festival called the Rust Belt Revolt in Buffalo in April 2000. The Rust Belt Revolt featured bands originating from Rust Belt cities. The band was last based in Chicago, IL.
