Crass - Feeding of the 5000.

But you'll probably like Propaghandi most because they're closer to the sound of Anti-Flag and other bands you mentioned...

I don't listen to them, so I can't recommend anything.

Feeding of the 5000 (as Rockthe40oz said)

For Propaghandi i recommend Less Talk, More Rock and How To Clean Anything in any order. After these two albums they get more metalish which is still great but takes some getting used to after hearing their earlier stuff.

Aus Rotten, Behind Enemy Lines

These two especially. If you like more modern bands, then Behind Enemy Lines.

Propagandhi is where it's at. Less Talk More Rock is what you want if you want their more NoFX sound (don't bother listening to HTCE), but their best album is Today's Empire Tomorrow's Ashes. Potemkin City LImits and Supporting Caste are quite good too though.

I might argue that title could be bestowed upon Joe Hill, Joe.

Also, it warms my heart to see someone go from anti-flag to crass.

Also, agree to everything Sargasm listed.

In which way is Behind Enemy Lines more modern than Aus Rotten? They have a better production, but besides that?

I thought he had clariffied that by 'modern' he simply meant punk bands that were still recording. I mean, BEL is just two members of Aus-Rotten along with a few other guys, but they're still recording/performing, at least occasionally around Pittsburgh.

And BEL definitely has a distinctive sound, it sounds like it's trying to be a new type of hardcore, it kind of has some grind elements in it. I mean, listen to The System Works For Them and then The Global Cannibal, there's definitely a distinction between the two bands.

Either way, the singer's lyrics are still my favorite around. I feel like he's matured some with BEL...the title track on Global Cannibal along with Advancing the Cause are two of my favorite songs at the moment.

I thought the recording quality of Aus-Rotten made them sound crustier than BEL, quite honestly.

Both have a place in my heart. Whenever I get to see Behind Enemy Lines live, you really can't tell a huge difference, because the production value is at the same quality as Aus-Rotten had in-studio. I always prefered the somewhat 'live' sound that A-R had on their CDs, but once Know Your Enemy and the Global Cannibal came out, it became a much harder decision. They sound awesome, even if they are quite cleaned up.

Green Day.

Funny story there though, Green Day isn't punk music, but it actually has some similar political views
"You have brains in your head,
You have feet in your shoes,
You can steer yourself,
any direction you choose,
You're on your own,
And you know what you know,
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go."

A better question would be what punk bands aren't political. The entire scene was founded on a dislike for the social norm and a hatred for what was going on in the government at that time.

Probably a lot of emocore/post-hardcore bands aren't really political, and skate punk isn't always. Other than that, most of it is.

A lot of Oi is apolitical too. And Pop punk. And a lot of them old New York bands, like the ones who played at CBGBs. Besides, this thread is about bands that are really political. Like the ones that rarely have a song that isn't political.

I took one of those political tests, where it asks you about 6 pages of questions and then tells you what you 'are.'

I came out as Libertarian Socialist, and I was just like wtf. I looked it up on Wikipedia and they claimed it was just a big euphemism for anarchist. I was like...right on.

They showed a 'compass' sort of system (leftist, rightist, and then north and south representing authoritarian and libertarian), and showed what political leaders would be where. Supposedly my views are MOST in line with Gandhi. My spot on the compass was almost right on top of his.
