Anti-Flag

Making their debut at a local Pittsburgh radio station in 1993, Anti-Flag got together for the sake of responding to their disgust at religion, nationalism, and fascism. Justin Sane (vocals/guitar), Andy Flag (bass/vocals), and Pat Thetic (drums) bopped around their hometown much to the dismay of skinheads while recruiting a following who proudly wore torn-up upside-down flags as patches. In 1997, after releasing a handful of singles, opening for their idols the U.K. Subs, the Exploited, and the Circle Jerks, and briefly touring the East Coast -- which led to the departure of Andy Flag -- Die for the Government was released, and 20,000 copies, four bassists, and four North American tours later, Anti-Flag gained their reputation for recapturing the old-school ethics of punk: fast, loud, obnoxious, and anti-everything that ends with an "ism."

Chris Head was added to the lineup in 1997 and two years later bassist Chris #2 joined on as well to complete the four-piece. Their System Doesn't Work for You, a reissue of their out of print EP North America Sucks along with additional previously unreleased songs, followed in 1998 on the band's newly founded A-F Records. They released A New Kind of Army in 1999 on Go Kart Records, hoping not only to push their beliefs to a wider audience but, more importantly, just to play out around the world while flipping two fingers in the air to everyone they're against. A summer stint on the Warped Tour brought an expanded audience and new friends, including NOFX's Fat Mike over at Fat Wreck Chords. The label put out 2001's Underground Network, recorded with the help of Mass Girorgini (Screeching Weasel, Common Rider). Half of the tracks for their next effort, Mobilize, were recorded live in their hometown in December 2001; the disc came out in February 2002, and it fittingly also contained many songs, most explicitly "911 for Peace," that reflected the World Trade Center terrorist attacks.

In early 2002, Sane released a solo record entitled Life, Love and the Pursuit of Justice via A-F, and it mostly contained a sonically stripped-down version of his main band's political agenda. Anti-Flag's contribution to the BYO Split Series came out in fall 2002 with their split with the Bouncing Souls, and a year later they issued their next full-length, The Terror State, on Fat Wreck. The four-song EP Live at Fireside Bowl also appeared on Liberation. Released in 2004, the live Death of a Nation DVD chronicled the band's U.S. tour in support of The Terror State, and that same year, A-F reissued A New Kind of Army. Not surprisingly, the band also became involved with Punk Voter, a coalition of punk bands and artists who worked to raise voter awareness and participation -- namely against George W. Bush -- for the 2004 election, and headlined the Rock Against Bush tour. In a somewhat unexpected move, Anti-Flag next signed to RCA in April 2005; they issued For Blood and Empire the following March. In October 2007 the band released A Benefit for Victims of Violent Crime on their own A-F label, an EP (with a combination of both new songs and live tracks) whose proceeds went to the Center for Victims of Violence and Crime, a decision made after Chris #2 lost his sister to homicide earlier that year. In 2008, the band released The Bright Lights of America, and the Tony Visconti-produced album would be their last for RCA as Anti-Flag made the jump to SideOneDummy. Back on an independent label and now recording in their own studio, the band wasted no time in putting out their eighth studio album, The People or the Gun, in 2009. As always, Anti-Flag continued to stay politically active, donating profits from the album to Amnesty International, as well as attending a G-20 protest in their home town. Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement, the band followed up in 2012 with the politically charged The General Strike. ~ Mike DaRonco, Rovi

they aren't against the country. they are against the morals of america and its government. there is a huge difference. You can hate this country and not be a terrorist.
Anti-Flag is f**king awesome. Also.. I think it out to be noted. F**king ironic, when the super awesome punk band auto corrects to ANTI-GAY.
Also, Anti-Flag is the s**t!
I don't know why people are always b**ching about punk bands not preaching about change and taking down the government when punk isn't necessarily about that. Punk is about GOOD music. Not every punk band should have to put a message about change in every song.
If they're against it, why not talk about it? Government nowadays is generally corrupt. People around the world hate us. We need to fix this. The SO called punk bands nowadays need to quit selling out and start lobbying towards change
Man I don't even like Anti-Flag that much but I was like YES when I saw they were from Pittsburgh.
The partisan crap you guys are squabbling over is one of the things Anti-flag is against. Proper political discourse is important, but too much of congress (and people who absorb any headline or sound byte as the unequivocal truth) has prevented that. And that is nothing new. It's been like that since the 1700s, but has come to the forefront thanks to social media and the net.
The reason punk rock isn't mad at Obama like they were Bush is because he's liberal. I thought punks would hate all politics, cuz news flash, it sucks. We need to make a sxe hardcore punk political party and get our own guys in office. They might be able to fix stuff. Certainly wouldn't hesitate to bomb the terrorists

And you'd think they'd hate Obama too, he isn't exactly doing good. And he's a f**kin liar. If they like him just cuz he's liberal, they are idiot's.

<3 this is great! <3 \m/
Anti-Flag didn't sellout. They had one, ONE album, For Blood and Empire that was on a major record label, then they went back to a different record label. And they were at Occupy, not cause they thought they were making a difference, but they support the ideals of it. And the OWS wasn't meant to be punk rock, it was to protest the power of corporations by all workers, not just those that were punk.
so much the anti flag !!
@n_three: i'm not exactly sure where your going with that or who you're responding to, but flag's merch is made in the U.S.
n_three
Seriously, the corporate feudalist culture makes made in China merch nearly impossible to avoid even when you're trying, then they and their moron supporters try to invalidate any and all opposition movements by the people whose jobs they've destroyed (such as Occupy) by saying duh, you're wearing/usin g something made in China therefore your message doesn't count, all your valid points are now garbage, and I win and ur a loser, dumbass! Logic: you're doing it wrong.
@justinevald e z 9 1 I agree. Occupy Wall Street wasn't very punk rock. Way to be counter culture by going with the flow.
I think, very few punk bands can really stay true to the lofty ideals of the punk counter culture. Many bands start out spouting anti government sentiment and urging people to change their society, and most of them give up or sell out.

Aside from Propaghandi, who really tried to make their vision a reality and nearly suceeded, i can honestly say that no punk band has ever stayed true to their ideals
u do realize that made virtually no sense? anti flag opened my eyes to the lies that the media and the government have given us!
@chrisgonzal e z 1 8 6
chrisgonzale z 1 8 6
Anti-flag became the very thing they despise. The only thing I like about the new Anti-flag is that their message has been consistent and continue to oppose the establishmen t , even if it means continuing to support the establishmen t .
love the old anti flag, wasnt to happy to see justins acoustic performance at occupy wall street. Like they are making any difference standing around entertaining with a gutiar made in china having there pictures takin by cameras made in china and wearing gay occupy t shirts made in china...agre e with bddwetteland sold out and confused
i love the faact that they stand against nationalism yet they were the first ones to say hura amarica in the bush 2 iraqe wars. they dont know what they beleive. there confused kids
there music is good. sure it might sond a bit like pop-punk but they are still good.
REAL PUNK ROCK!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! XD
are they trying to embarrass themselves?
this, boys and girls, is good ideas gone wrong. the bigger they got, the worse they got. it's sad really. but i guess you can justify selling out if you think you're getting a message through.
agree with seth wood anti flag suck, thats why people think punkrock is s**t like greenday and blink 182 f**k you if you like this
trogdorthebu r n i n a t o r 2 0 0
With the exception of Underground Network, these guys suck.
they sound nothing like greenday! greenday sucks, there early stuff was good but everything new blows
i dont disagree with their politics, i just think the music is pretty f**kin lame. greendayish and whiney.
To saxophone_ra y .... finally some one understands what anti-flag is about. You don't know how much it pisses me off when people say anti-flag is un-American lol
So it's not just that they against the country which made it possible for them to be artists (even though it may come as a surprise, but it is possible to be an artist outside of the U.S.), but they are against the mindset and ideologies of the entire system.
To mr.wmiller

It seems to me Anti-Flag is not just against the U.S. (they are not called Anti-United States Flag). We are all citizens of the world and flags serve only to divide. Peace will only be achieved when the people of the world throw down their flags and live not just for their greed (let alone their own country) but for the entire world. It is probably naive to think that will ever happen, but it is a philosophica l stance. So it's not just that they against the country which mad
This band represents pretty much everything that's right about modern music. Left wing, snotty, loud, proficient guitar work, pisses the nu-metal guys and ICP clowns right off. Hope they keep doing what they do for a good long time.
who gives a fuk its music people!

The illusion that America is a great country is just the opinion of the fascist elite that control it. It is their opinion, same as how it was Hitler's opinion that the German Aryan race was the greatest in the world. And to be honest, America is essentially what Hitler wanted to do with the world: Predominantl y Anglo-Saxon, with plenty of Lebensraum(l i v i n g space) for the Great race to spread their progeny. America was founded on the ethnic cleansing and mass genocide of the native peoples.
tylerhuff88
Yeah wmiller, because people can't become musicians in any country other than the USA. God people are stupid.
too bad they are against the greatest country which made it possible for them to become artists. Love the music though
