I've had it for almost a month now...order it off Fat Wreck Chords and its only $8

Best tracks IMO:

The Offspring-Baghdad

Anti-Flag-The School of Assasins

New Found Glory-No News is Good News

Pennywise-God Save the USA

NOFX-Jaw Knee Music

Less Than Jake/Billy Brag-The Brightest Bulb Has Burned Out

And the best track

Strike Anywhere-To The World

Anti-Flag's Terror State Album addresses the problems with America, Bush and the war much more directly.

Anti-Flag-The School of Assasins

*shudders* Anti Flag makes my ears bleed. Other then that, it's a nice idea, but since the majority of people picking it up will be under 18 I don't know how much good it will do. Hopefully it'll produce a generation of non-Republicans.

It could do just that, but, I bet the parents will end up hearing the music just because they will be around at times. I imagine most parents know what their kids listen to in their bedroom or on the computer. My parents know what I listen to and sometimes I have them listen to my music. So, it could be spread that way. Just a thought.

I highly doubt that parents are going to be influenced by their kids' music. Probably the exact opposite. Hopefully the kids let their parents see the bonus videos and such; that might help.

It's a good idea, but the wrong bands to do it. The bands they've chosen are pop-punk nonsense that's only going to appeal to kids and a few adults, not enough to sway the voters at all.

And Billy Bragg with Less Than Jake....why, Billy, why?! You can make more of a political statement on your own than the rest of the bands on this album combined!

Hey, where's the love for Pennywise? And less than Jake :(

Pennywise and Less than Jake need to be shot, ASAP.

This is just typical left-wing garble. Bitch and moan about the president using vague references with no back-up. "The President sucks cock, I hate his guts".

Hell, if you are going to buy something like that go and buy "Nevermind the Bullocks Here Comes the Sex Pistols" and replace "God Save the Queen" with "God Save George Bush". Same thing, different time.

best song in my eyes:

Ministry - No W or The Get Up Kids - Lion & The Lamb

EDIT: And as for going and buying a Sex Pistols CD...they suck cock.

Oh, on second thought, Social Distortion and the Descendents are good as well. Ministry are cool in my books too.

I don't understand what anyone sees in Anti Flag ("GEORGE BUSH SUCKS, I HATE AMERICA") and Sum 41 ("TYPICAL REBELLION THOUGHT HERE"). Pennywise and Less than Jake are horrible, horrible groups. Why do the Ataris feel the need to express their beliefs? Didn't they cover Boys of Summer? What the hell does that have to do with politics?

I stand by Lion & The Lamb as a good track.

Good bands on the CD, IMO:

Alkaline Trio

Epoxies

Ministry

The Get Up Kids

Jello Biafra w/ D.O.A

Descendents

None More Black

The CD comes with a DVD with some clips from documentaries about the 2000 Election, War on Iraq, etc, a couple of music videos, some 30 second adverts and some stand up comedian thaking the piss out of George Bush. The album sleeve even has 40 reasons to why you should hate George Bush, and also contains a bit at the start written by Fat Mike on why he hates George Bush.

So there goes the idea that all of the bands are just saying "We hate Bush" for the sake of hating Bush.

Ill agree with the people who say that some of the bands shouldn't even be on here (Sum41? New Found Glory? The Ataris? Their songs on here are just average, with the exception of The Ataris who go way below average - They should never cover Bad Religion again. I wish Propagandhi were still on the CD though.) but to simply say that they are doing it to make themselves appear more serious and intelligent with politics is completly unfounded.

That said though PunkRockPete, I decided not to directly insult you. I could never insult an Operation Ivy fan :D

Oh, and on Good Charlotte being on Volume 2 - I went to see NOFX last week at the Brixton Academy. Halfway through the NOFX set, Fat Mike gets up and goes "Good Charlotte. What a bunch of fucking pussies. A month ago they were going 'Oh yeah this Rock Against Bush thing, we are gonna do it, we are gonna do it.' Last week they phoned me up and said 'We can't do it, our record label said we shouldnt'"

And then he mentioned something about the Foo Fighters, Bad Religion and No Doubt (For fucks sake. Unless its one of their old ska songs, or them actually performing a new ska song, whats the fucking point) being confirmed.

Personalym I find the music on the CD kind of bad, if they really wanna get their message accross, they need to use better bands.

You mean, to get through to you, they should use bands you like. This CD wasn't about entertaining people as much as giving artists a voice with other artists to express their thoughts on Bush

This is just typical left-wing garble. Bitch and moan about the president using vague references with no back-up. "The President sucks cock, I hate his guts".

I echo FunkAsPuck on this one.

BTW, Punk In Drublic is the best reverse NOFX reference.

i pissed myself reading most thes reviews, it´s fun how people barly listen to lyrics - even if it´s their own languagae, but wen the cover is against the american hitler impression everyone starts crying like fat grannies did in WW2 wen someone said hitler was a bad guy. ("i love the bands but with that album title i lost all respect to them")

if i wouldend know that a big number of americans were on the streets against bush i already would belive that countinend wold loos an IQ contest vs bread
