I’m trying to remember the last time that I heard a punk band with a message. It’s become so much about pop that it’s been scrubbed clean of any rough edges and anything that would offend a soccer mom. It’s not really a sign of rebellion anymore. Gone are the days of Dead Kennedys and The Clash. Bad Religion are still around but they’re a little too cerebral these days. I was surprised that there weren’t more punk protest songs tied in with the Occupy movement. They’re not that far off a year of protesting the 1% and we finally have something from punk legends D.O.A. with a special appearance by former Dead Kennedys lead singer Jello Biafra. This is not meant to support or deride the movement, but merely to show punk’s place in the movement. Just a warning that first track, the B-side (which does not feature Mr. Biafra), has some strong language in it.
D.O.A. – Who The Hell Do You Think You Are
Elite Gymnastics – Life/Trap from “RUIN 4″
Celldweller – Unshakeable from “Wish Upon A Blackstar”
Fang Island -Asunder
Quinton Sung – The National Anthem from “Kid A (8-bit)”
Yellowcard – Always Summer
Second Story Feedback – Symphony Lifespan
Rosie Thomas -Much Farther To Go from “Daytrotter.com Sessions”
… And So I Watch You From Afar – The Voiceless
Thanks for listening and I’ll see you next week.
