The Vans Warped Tour: No Room For Rockstars (DVD clip)


Let's get this straight. Your average punk band doesn't sell out venues like the 14,000-capacity Long Beach Arena. Your average punk band doesn't organize benefit shows for charities like the Surfrider Foundation. And your average punk band doesn't last fifteen months these days let alone fifteen years. For fuck's sake - PENNYWISE is not and never will be your average punk ... Read more in Amazon's Pennywise Store

Editorial Reviews

On Land of the Free?--a record inspired by the worldwide protests against the World Trade Organization--L.A. skatecore veterans Pennywise claim to have written "a soundtrack for political activists all over the world." That this, their seventh album, is one of their finest to date is not due to any inspired political invective. The anthemic barrage of the opening "Time Marches On" sets the tone for an album whose music impacts like a police baton charge. Pennywise work so well as a complete band, it's often nothing short of breathtaking; just listen to the way Randy Bradbury's deft bass lines cleverly weave around the chugging juggernaut riffage dealt out by guitarist Fletcher Dragg on the towering holler-along "F**k Authority." The politics might not be expressed with an eloquence as revolutionary as Pennywise clearly think, but forget about that. Land of the Free? is a reminder of the sheer seismic power of punk rock. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars This is pennywise? December 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
That's the question I hear alot from people when they give their first listen. Yes it is Pennywise, and their return this year with "Land of the free?" is being hailed by some and criticized by others. Personally, I think this was a great return from Pennywise after being absent for some time, and their new anti-political attitude is actually quite enjoyable. Now don't get me wrong, this is the same group you learned to love on "About time", with intense guitar work, fast drumming and great lyrics. The real difference between this release and their earlier works rests in the lyrics, which are aimed at the United States Government, and the recent violet WTO riots. Everything seems to come together quite nicly as one fast paced, over the edge punk rock formula. Defintely worth it for Pennywise fans, and a great experience for newcomers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Land of the free May 17, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Land of the free is more powerful than From the ashes(not that FTA don't rock, it rocks trust me!) for some reasons, it has a type a punch on this one that isn't on other PW albums, which make the mood of the album really louder and powerful!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gettin' old but not bad June 19, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was incredibly excited to get this new Pennywise album. I had downloaded two songs from "The World" and "Time Marches On" and boy howdee was I pumped for June 19th! Unfortunately, I was not as happy with the new album as I had hoped to be. Some of the songs seem a bit old and the lyrics of couple songs like "My God," while strong in message, lacked some of the more inspiration found on earlier albums. BUT that is not to say that the album should not be bought because some of the tracks, "The World", "F**k Authority," and "Time Marches On" being the strongest, are every bit as intense, powerful, and insightful as anything they've done. As soon as the crowd is cut off by Fletcher's guitar on "Time Marches On," I felt the pulse-pounding, guitar riffs, coursing through my veins, sending my head into convulsions as my teeth began to rumble and crack from the sheer force of the sound assaulting me from my stereo. There is filler on this album, but there are enough standout tracks also present to make this album a must buy for any Pennywise album. As was made evident on the previous album, "Straight Ahead," Pennywise is starting to mature. Good bands do. Though I wouldn't reccomend this album to anybody just beginning to discover the musical force that is Pennywise (It doesn't have the fluidity and consistency of past releases like"About Time" and "Full Circle") I definitely would reccomend it to the true believers. "Land of the Free" isn't their greatest album, but was most assuredly not discouraging and if Pennywise continue on as they did on "Land of the Free" I will look forward to the next album (And their current Warped Tour dates!) and every release after that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Somethings Missing... June 22, 2001
Format:Audio CD
After 2 years Pennywise is back with the follow up to 99's masterpiece "Straight Ahead". Though a solid effort from the band, I can't help but feel a little disappointed. The reason: there is little or no progression from the last album to this one. With the release of the song "Alien" on Straight Ahead Pennywise looked to be expanding their horizons. But this album finds them repeating themselves. There is a fine line between a band "staying true to their sound", and repeating themselves, and Pennywise are getting dangerously close. Even on the production they take a step back. Whereas the guitars were clean on SA, here there is too much bottom end in the mix, and the sound is too thick. The drums, usually a highlight on Pennywise albums, suffer here from a dull, warm sound. They should have gone with a punchier higher pitch snare. (Check out the snare on Straight Ahead, and see there is no comparison.) There are some standout tracks here: The World, My God, Divine Intervention, and WTO, rock like classic Pennywise. I was just hoping for a bit more...

5.0 out of 5 stars True to form August 30, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Pennywise has been churning out Hardcore in the tradition of Bad Religion since their '92 debut. Their newest album carries on this formula of quick lyrics and tight riffs backed by solid melodies and the "ooohing ahhhs" on which Epitaph likely holds a patent.
The album is remarkably consistant with previous Pennywise fare but doesn't seem the least bit stale. There's nothing flashy here- just raw power that grabs the listener and says "We're going for a little ride".

5.0 out of 5 stars Delivers From Beginning to End July 25, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is one of those rare albums that contains no fillers. If you want to listen to a CD that packs a punch from beginning to end, this is a must have. I have been a punk rock fan from the early days & had the pleasure of being totally immersed in the Lower East Side of NYC scene in the late 70's & early 80's. This albums harkens back to the days of early Ramones, The Clash, & Sex Pistols. Angry driving music with a social commentary - that's what punk rock has always been all about & this one won't disappoint. The production quality is right on - no over producing or special effects. Hard pounding rhythm section, powerful guitar, & easy to understand vocals that carry a message.
