New Green Day a full six weeks before the new album is released!

I'm disappointed because they said The Used would be on Vol.2, but on the same token, very happy that Good Charolette are not.

No where near as good as volume one, but i'll probably find some kind of chance to listen to it. Not every punk band is into politics, per say, rather they're into making a difference because they feel very anti-Bush.

Good Charlotte wouldn't be on it because their record label said it wasn't a good idea apparently.

Two bands that I like.

I'll give it a miss.

And why exactly are every punk band into politics?

Because they had a lot to be pissed about in Britian in '77.

This CD is much, MUCH better than the other one. Probably some pretenious music fans won't like it, but it is a stacked punk rock compilation. Green Day, Operation Ivy, Bad Religion, DKM, Flogging Molly, Rancid, Bouncing Souls, The (International) Noise Conspiracy... but really, only a few of those bands should be included on a CD where it is talking about politics. I mean, Drunken Lullabies isn't a political song...

Because that was the point of punk. That's how it started...

There are two good bands (Bad Religion, International Noise Conspiracy) and two decent ones (Op Ivy, Rancid). But the Op Ivy song sucks.

So it pretty much sucks.

Green Day's new stuff is a linear album, that has quite a few songs that go over the 7 minute mark.

They termed it a "Punk Rock Opera" and its heavily based around politics and the current state of the world, while at the same time, a coming of age tale.

I am currently trying to win a trip to see Green Day in Colorado

the basic of punk is political left, you cannot be political left wen you have no political opinion . . . even the worst bubelgum punk (blink 187, good charlet ect.) is somewhat politic, and if it only is in the anachistig though.

Matzat, I love the term Bubblegum Punk, and I will steal it.

Too much Bubblegum Punk on this album, if you want a real Rock Against Bush album, I suggest KMFDM's "WWIII." Most of the songs are against Bush, and rocks a hell of a lot harder than this will.

It wasn't origionally, but can be taken as one for some of the lyrics:

"Must it take a life for hateful lies, to glisten once again

So we find ourselves in the same old mess, singing drunken lullabies"

Most of their songs were written about politics where they're from anyways, right?

Both these CD's suck. Let's not Rock Against Bush, let's Rock Against Politics. I always thought punk was supposed to be anti-government, not anti-president.

Well, it can be. But NOFX organized these discs for said purpose of speaking out against Bush. Since the president is part of the government, and the current one is overly criticized (most times, deserving of it) it's just these guys way of having their voices heard.

Apple, I guess you could look at it from that perspective. I just don't see Flogging Molly is a political band, more an Irish Drinking band. But that is just useless stereotypes and the such.

And I agree with whoever said lets rock against Politics. I think a lot of the songs will simply be rock against Politics, but they just sold their songs towards a cause they believed in. And just because they don't support Bush, doesn't mean they support Kerry (see The (International)Noise Conspiracy who has trashed the neo-Liberals before).

I don't see what makes you an authority on what is and isn't punk.

Generally, people consider punk to be most rock that conveys a social / political message in its lyrics. The idea that all punk is 'anti-government', or anarchistic is a myth born out of the characature age of the Sex Pistols.

But then, I'm sure your real agenda was to show that despite being young, you're a conservative, and very wacky and whatnot, or whatever.

I dig three bands on this album: Sugarcult, Flogging Molly and Foo Fighters. I've never thought of any of them as being remotely political. At least Volume 1 had Pennywise. Think I'll avoid this one.

Only stuff that remotely interests me on the CD is in bold. Meh, I didn't buy the first and it looks like I won't buy the second.
