Never Judge A Record By Its Sleeve

One of the best bands in Gainesville that never really got the recognition they deserved. They ended for dumb reasons, but whatever.

I am way late on this, but this record is probably my least favorite D4 release. However, it’s better than most of the crap out there right now. An OK Dillinger four album is better than your average fat wreck signing as of a few years ago. A lot of the lyrics on this record are really great though despite everyone’s need to romanticize alcohol consumption.

dadbully asked: Why is dangers controversial

I know they pissed off a lot of people with their song “War? What War?”  I have also seen them accused of using transphobic lyrics, though, I’m not sure if that is entirely true.  They also use very strong language in the song “Half Brother, Half Cop.”  They are definitely a band who are all about context.  I can understand how a passerby could hear these songs and be offended and they have every right to be, since the current culture of hardcore is very problematic and violent.  I’m not sure where else to go with this, but some times I feel like it’s OK to enjoy problematic things as long as you are mindful.

The most controversial band in hardcore. I can’t help but love this band. It’s angry, sarcastic and emotional. Everything I like in music. I can’t wait to see them live, though my body is not ready.

One of my favorite bands out right now. I don’t know if I like this record more than the last one, but it’s still better than anything else being released. It gets a little too misfits for me and at times sounds a lot like rise against. All of this is wrapped up in an atheist manifesto that is better than any stupid YouTube user rant.

This is perfect summer music. I don’t listen to a lot of “oldies”, but I love me some ccr. Classic American shit right here.

I wish I was paying attention when this band was still around. Awesome hardcore just the way I like it. The members went on to start another awesome band called everybody row. Stoked to hear more stuff from them.

Captive bolt are one of the best hardcore bands in Florida right now. This is a cool split with a pretty cool professor doing some spoken word on veganism. Really need to see these dudes live again.

This is some cool hardcore punk from the Philly area. The imagery is awesome within the insert and I’m digging the lyrics. This was part of a large care package sent to me last month.

Such an awesome live recording. This is also the smallest record I own of two of my favorite songs from one of my favorite bands covered by some of my favorite people.
