A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

  • Dec 12, 2012

I had the displeasure of listening to this band a few times back in the early 2000's, and I really fucking hate this band.  They market themselves as a bunch of punk rockers angry at the system, but they're really a bunch of whiney pop musicians whose music has zero point zero aggression or ferocity.  If Simple Plan or Good Charlotte made albums with political rhetoric against the far-right and compared it to Rise Against's discography, I wouldn't tell the difference.

If you want real punk and/or music with a fierce political stance, immerse yourself in the prime works of Black Flag, the Dead Kennedys, the Romper Stomper soundtrack, Minor Threat, Electro Hippies, and Napalm Death.

If you haven't heard anything from Rise Against, consider yourself lucky. Anti-Flag are essentially the same as these clowns, too.
