Against Me!

20 Jun

Opening with the same explosive chord as the Pixies’ Bossanova, riffing right into a Killing Joke-like hook, and finally settling into Billy Bragg at 78 rpm, this brand of punk rock revolution is, regrettably, rare.

    this sounds suspiciously like the Dropkick Murphys… Has this lead singer had a previous gig with someone else?

    It's nice to hear a good old honest to goodness punk band, especially one that deals with political issues. Not to mention the fact that Against Me! is on par (intensity wise) with the classics like Minor Threat, and Black Flag. It is about time bands started to put intensity back into music.
    And no, I don't think that Thomas had played in any previous bands.

    um, just as an update, a ton of music, both new and old, can be found at the official Against Me! site… they have a new album out, and are touring like mad! I saw them here in chicago the other week and it was the best show I have ever been to. If you have the chance. check it out, they give an amazing show!

    Against Me! has some of the best sounds in punk music today and if you havn't heard them, i highly advise you should; they really get your adrenaline pumping – and I can vouch that they gave the best show I have ever seen when they came to vancouver, you can't help but yell, scream and jump during their performance. I am excited for them.

    I've seen them live twice and they put on a GREAT show. I am married to a former friend/bandmate of the bass player so I may be a bit biased.
