Why is it that when a punk album is focused on poverty and inequality, everyone says it's depressing. I mean no offense or anything, BUT IT'S PUNK FUCKING RAWK, YOU GUYS.

Also, I like this more than the new House Boat album, and I love the new House Boat album.

I listened to AJJ a fair bit last year. I got "Self Esteem" stuck in my head all day after first seeing this thread.

I think they got a good sound for themselves and stuff, but they sorta make me feel bad. And not good bad. I don't know how much of that is because of the content of their music/lyrics and how much is because of the memories I associate with listening to them. And they don't really ever fit into my listening routines. But I can't say I "don't like" them, even in a passive way.

It makes me uneasy when I don't know if I like a band or not.

I knew I was emotionally stable when I could listen to AJJ without getting really sad.

"American Tune" is sad as shit just because it's so true. It's coming to a close now, I hope this stuff doesn't get too much more depressing.


Edit: Zombie by the Cranberries by Andrew Jackson Jihad is also a downer. Damn good album though. I think I like it more than People on the whole.

I can relate to this. But not regarding Andrew Jackson Jihad, 'cuz I like them. I especially love their split with Ghost Mice; "Little Prince" & "Forest Fire" are two of my personal favs. I even met Sean of Andrew Jackons Jihad one time after my band opened for him & that dude from BTMI! at the student center of Trinity College in Hartford. He was a real cool cat.

AJJ/Ghost Mice split is awesome, though I do like the Ghost Mice half more.

That version of Forest Fire is awesome.
I smile whenever I hear the very end of it

What's great about AJJ lyrics is the fact that even if one particular song doesn't relate to your woes, there's still one out there.

Also, 'Who Are You?' off of Can't Maintain is one of the catchiest songs I've ever heard.
