Brokencyde is an American crunkcore musical group from Albuquerque, New Mexico, founded in 2006.
Brokencyde was founded by vocalists Se7en and Mikl. According to interviews, the name of the band originated from a self-described idea of their music being fundamentally "broken inside" due to personal relationship problems. After the band began actively promoting themselves online, members Phat J and Antz joined Brokencyde to complete its current lineup.
