New Mexican Disaster Squad was a hardcore punk band. It was formed in Orlando, Florida in 1999. Their last show was at the Fest 7 on November 1, 2008.

The band's MySpace page describes their sound as "harken[ing] back to the glory days of American hardcore with equal influences from the east and west coasts".[1]

They released four full-length albums, the last, Don't Believe (2006), on Jade Tree Records.

On December 28, 2008, a posting on the band's MySpace page announced that Goldfarb, Etherington, and Johnson had joined with Tony Foresta, the vocalist from Municipal Waste, to form a band called No Friends.[2]
