Mike "Judge" played drums in famous straight edge band Youth of Today.
Soon after recording the album "Break Down The Walls" Youth of Today drummer Drew Thomas was replaced by Mike "Judge" Ferraro.
At the end of 1987 Mike left the band and Sammy Siegler (ex-
Side By Side) became the new drummer.
Mike Ferraro, decided to do a project band with Youth of Today's Porcell, called Judge. The group would soon grow from a side project to a full-time band, with Mike becoming known as Mike Judge: a rough-and-tumble biker sort of guy who wrote hard-edge lyrics but with heart and honesty.
