5.0 out of 5 stars Politics or No Politics, its Just Plain GOOD June 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a really really good album. Im saying that to the people who may be turned off by its political leanings. People, this isnt just some Bush-hatefest put to music, not at all. Most of these songs have a message of some kind, some more vauge than others, but for the most part its pretty soft. And above all else the music just plain rocks. There isnt a bad track on this compilation. They all sound great, and with 26 different bands you can listen to it again and again and not get bored with it. Its awesome. Now to breakdown the tracks:
1. None More Black - Nothing To Do When Your Caught in a Vacancy: 8/10 Pay no attnetion to the titles of half of these tracks, most of them have little to do with the lyrics.
2. Sum 41 - Moron: 7/10 Ive always been a little turned off to Sum 41 because they are so mainstream, but they earn points for a good effort here.
3. Alkaline Trio - Warbrain: 9/10 Great song. These guys have great sound and good vocals.
4. Epoxies - Need More Time: 9/10 I really like this song, but its not your run-of-the-mill punk track at all, so some people might not care for it. Its got keyboards and a steady syth line throughout thats kind of 80s/new wave sounding, but its got fast beat and great vocals (female singer) and good lyrics too.
5. Anti-Flag - The School of Assassins: 9/10 This song rocks. Great lyrics, great backup and beat. The clips they play between verses are kind of weird though.
6. Against Me! - Sink, Florida, Sink (Electric): 8/10 Good song.
7. The Offspring - Baghdad: 9/10 I usually dont care for Offspring because they are such sellouts, but they score big points for contributing to this CD, and the song they play is badass so Ive gotta give it to em.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's focus on the music! May 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am going to refrain from any of the liberal vs. conservative sniping that some other reviewers seem to enjoy. I agree with the CD's message, but I'm going to rate the songs focusing more on musical merit than on the message conveyed therein. I am also going to refrain from the "Sellout! Sellout!" comments that clutter many of the reviews. So, without further ado, the songs:
1. None More Black-Nothing To Do When You're Locked In A Vacancy: 7.5/10. A good song, nice guitars, but it suffers in comparison with some of the other songs on this album.
2. Sum 41-Moron: 7/10. Nice song about being unable to feel what's going on in the world, but the Descendants do the same thing much better.
3. Alkaline Trio-Warbrain: 11/10. My favorite song of all time. Everything is great: vocals, lyrics, guitar, bass, drums...this song is reason enough to buy the album.
4. Epoxies-Need More Time: 8/10. The vocals are nice, but it loses a point for sounding a bit too techno for my taste.
5. Anti-Flag-The School Of Assassins: 10/10. A really cool song that makes you think, if you care about people in other countries.
6. Against Me!-Sink, Florida, Sink!: 8/10. A very funny song with good vocals and guitar.
7. The Offspring-Baghdad: 10/10. A great song about the cost of war, with nice lyrics and Middle-Eastern sounding instrumentation.
8. The Get Up Kids-Lion And The Lamb: 10/10. Another song about war, this one's incredibly harmonious and melodic.
9. Rise Against-Give It All: 9.5/10. A song about the soldiers who fight our wars that doesn't condemn the war but rather honors the soldiers.
10. Ministry-No W: 8.5/10. Great lyrics, but how much you like this one depends on how much you like heavy metal.
11. Descendants-Sad State Of Affairs: 10/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars respectable for it's efforts May 1, 2004
By 77Jim
Format:Audio CD
Ok. I'm a community college professor pushing 30 and my punk rock days are long behind me, but I picked this up out of curiosity and it's an interesting listen for 8$ ... Though I wouldn't take all the punk rock piss and vinegar here "religiously", I do think this is a positive and respectable project. Fat Mike used to make some lyrically dumb music in his early career so I never took him super seriously, but now he's bringing together a young sub-culture to positively attempt social change. 4 stars for trying! Good!
*somewhere in the US, government agents are likely analyzing NOFX lyrics to determine their threat to world security... what a funny thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Compilation July 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Everyone reviewing this CD is so hyped up on the concept of Bush that they forgot a key concept: the music! This is a great CD! Its cool that pop/punk and punk/rock can get together and make a CD that's worth buying. I was a little intimidated before buying this, because I never thought I'd see Pennywise and New Found Glory on the same CD, but boy was I wrong. This CD is awesome! I love anything punk -- from The Ramones to Nofx -- so finding a CD with just punk was great for me, and will probably end up being great for you too. The reason why this album is so political is because the label is Fat Wreck Chords, and you know who runs Fat Wreck Chords? None other than Fat Mike from Nofx, who has a very large opinion on Bush. But who cares about that? On to the music! Stand out tracks include songs by Alkaline Trio, Nofx, The Descendents (finally!), Anti-Flag, and Pennywise. It would have been nice to hear something from Bad Religion or Unwritten Law, but its still awesome. But as for Bad Religion, there's an extra DVD that comes with this CD, with music videos from Bad Religion, Anti-Flag, and of course Nofx. Be sure to buy this comp!

Not every song is a political call to arms, but those that are have something informed to say. I really enjoy both volumes of this set.
