Christ On Parade (80s Punk for fans of Millions of Dead Cops, The Faction, Verbal Abuse)

Nothing gets the old heart ticking like some 80’s peace punk. Christ On Parade hailed out of Cali, and played punk rock in the veins of Millions of Dead Cops. The songs were fast and incorporated a lot of early hardcore, while still remaining incredibly catchy. Definitely check it out.

Nofx – The War on Errorism (For fans of Pennywise, Dillinger Four, Guttermouth)

Wow, I have not listened to NOFX’s “War On Errorism” in years, so it was pretty random that I had quite the urge to listen to it this morning. The first album where NOFX really tackles politics head on (in their own special way of course), WOE has everything you would expect from NOFX. Of course, you probably already own this… so how about showing it some love for the first time in like 5 years? MP3:NOFX – We Got Two Jealous AgainsNOFX – American […]

Embrace: Ian Mackaye’s Band Between Minor Threat and Fugazi

Everyone and their grandmother knows about Fugazi, just like everyone and their grandfather knows about Minor Threat… But only your weird ass cousin knows about MacKaye’s in between band, Embrace. Embrace was very short lived (1985 to 1986), but did create one hell of an album. The music could best be described like the band itself: somewhere between Minor Threat and Fugazi. The songs are nowhere near as heavy as Minor Threat, but definitely more straight forward than anything Fugazi ever put out. My second […]

Grey Area – S/T (For fans of Lifetime, Kid Dynamite, 7 Seconds)

Wow, just wow. I can’t even begin to state how much Grey Area completely blows me away. Grey Area plays punk rock somewhere between Lifetime and Kid Dynamite, with the songs being fast, melodic and anthematic. While listening to the album, I couldn’t help but grin the entire time, it’s some of the most solid music I’ve heard in a looooong time. Definitely check Grey Area out!

Star Fucking Hipsters (For fans of Leftover Crack, Morning Glory, Bouncing Souls)

Star Fucking Hipsters have been getting a lot of unfair criticism simply because it is Scott Sturgeon’s (aka. Stza) side project, and ever since he got arrested for uhhh… throwing doughnuts at cops, people have been looking down on all his bands. Love him or hate him, the man makes some solid music, and Star Fucking Hipsters are no exception. With their debut “Until We’re Dead” scheduled for release on September 30th, it’s definitely a solid album you want to pick up. While Star Fucking […]

The Bouncing Souls w/Grey Area live in Philadelphia (9/21/08)

The Bouncing Souls have always been my favorite band, with their anthems that I carried as my own back when I was an angsty teenager 9 years ago, all the way through now, where I carry their as my own as an angsty adult. I wound up showing up a little late, but I got in the large, yet intimate Starlight ballroom right when Everybody Out! was finishing up, which is a shame because from what I heard in those 3 minutes was awesome (very […]

Municipal Waste – Hazardous Mutations (For fans of DRI, Bones Brigade, Cro-Mags)

“If I can’t fuck shit up, I don’t want to live”, taken from Municipal Waste’s song “Blood Drive” pretty much sums up the band in one sentence. Richmond’s Municipal Waste are the gods of modern crossover thrash, and no one plays it better than these drunks, as proven on “Hazardous Mutations”. The songs are sloppy, fast, and sound like they came straight out of 1986 (with much better production). With titles like “The Thrashin of Christ” and “Abusement Park”, you can’t help but laugh along […]

Best 4 Stand Up Comedians

Punks! Take a break from the revolution for a minute, you’re looking a little too down. Give yourself a good laugh! 4. Mitch HedburgProbably the most awkward mofo on stage, Mitch was known for his unconventional joke style (one liners and damn all transition to hell). Brings observational humor to a whole new level.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bESBs3Lg7M] 3. Jim GaffiganThe only man who can take an entire set and revolve it around food, laziness, and generally being a fat slob… and still be completely hilarious.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTbJf8RDPgs] 2. Bill HicksSadly, […]

The Steal (For fans of Kid Dynamite, Good Clean Fun, 7 Seconds)

(The Steal as tourists) Holy crap, the reason I haven’t posted on these guys is because I seriously thought I did already, like a year ago. Joke’s on me! Possibly the most energetic and positive band to hail from the UK, The Steal plays punk rock/melodic hardcore in the veins of Kid Dynamite and 7 Seconds. Many bands will try to carry the torch of their predecessors, but The Steal sprints with the damned thing. The Steal manages to make the songs positive and meaningful […]
