In 2009 brothers and Internet radio DJs Turbo and Jay Scorpion (both of whom have Spinal Muscular Atrophy) decided to take their love of rock and metal music, support from the rock and metal community, and desire to find a cure for Muscular Dystrophy and turned it into Rock Against Dystrophy. The purpose of Rock Against Dystrophy is raise money and awareness about Muscular Dystrophy by holding benefit concerts featuring local area rock and metal bands and the occasional rock and metal star in the New York and New Jersey area with proceeds going to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
