McGowan was raised in foster care and grew up on the streets of New York. He was the lead singer for the New York City hardcore punk band Cro-Mags from 1984 until 1987, though he departed and rejoined the band sporadically. He sang on their demo and on their first, third, and fourth albums (The age of quarrel, Alpha omega, and Near death experience). He also sings lead on the Before the quarrel CD, essentially a reissue of the demo.

Before, during, and after his time in the Cro-Mags, McGowan served as an occasional roadie for Bad Brains on several tours, and he sang background vocals on Antidote's Thou shalt not kill EP. He returned to the Cro-Mags briefly in the early to mid-1990s, but ongoing disputes with fellow band member Harley Flanagan made the project unsustainable.
