ESG (Emerald, Sapphire and Gold) is an American post-punk band that emerged from the South Bronx, New York City, in the early 1980s. Trouser Press called it “one of the most dynamic bands that New York could offer at the top of the ’80s.” ESG has been influential across a wide range of musical genres, including hip hop, post-punk, disco, and dance-punk. The band’s track “UFO” is one of the most sampled songs in history.
