Numerous artists have used the name Life, including: 1. LIFE - British Post-Punk band formally known as The Neat. Their debut single "I Wanna Forget" was released on 21st October 2013 via Birthday Records. 2. Life - a crasher crust punk band from Japan. LIFE stands for Liberty Independence Freedom Equality. It all started in 1991. That was when we started to make plans for a new band. "Abe-chan" (Bass) and Ishiyama "Aniki"(Drum) joined hands and began attending amateur band presentations to scout around for additional members.
