am i going to find any other current and past against me fan in this forum
yeah i like all the albums and eps from beginning to end.
"new wave" and "....clarity"...
they were amazing albums..
i cant wait for the new one
why does no one else agree?

Meh. I got into Against Me! in chronological order, and have liked everything until Searching For a Former Clarity. Since I didn't like that much, I havn't even bothered with New Wave. This album probably won't be very good.

Looks like we're on the same page here.

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.

The new stuff that they played live is great. I'm actually excited for this new album.

I stopped knowing what to think of Against Me! when one of their songs features a verse where Tom imagine being someone's wife and them living by the ocean. (can't remember exactly)


but i still like the early stuff.

You honestly liked these cacophonic basement ear cancer recordings from their early days?

I am pretty sure Tom was purposefully trying to show a new side of his artistic abilities in that one (ocean). I wouldn't say hes aiming to be punk to satisfy his fan basses wants, or that hes trying to make music to appeal to the mainstream crowd. New wave fits none of these descriptions. More like hes just trying to make art from where he is in his life, which is all you can do if you want to be honest, and i respect that. It's not punk, and it sure as hell sounds nothing like the early material, but I still really like it, i think its poetic/creativity.

You suck

Also opinion.

I for one, am excited for anything new. New Wave was pretty great, minus Ocean and White People for Peace. And I think I'm one of the few people who liked Tom Gabel's solo album.
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

^Not opinion. Fact.

K, koo.
Thought this was an Against Me! thread.

But okay, bashing me works too.

Since you're new to the internet, I'll give you a few helpful pieces of advice.

When someone states an opinion on the internet you disagree with, there are several things you shouldn't do. First off, don't try to passive-aggressively tell them you disagree with them. Which leads me of course to my second point: reminding people that what they stated is an opinion is a terrible idea. Opinions are opinions, and if you were able to make it past age 10 without and severe mental trauma then it is generally assumed that you understand that. Now what you did was childish, as you made yourself look arrogant while saying the most irritating thing possible.

Now, could you please refrain from doing that in the future? You would fit in a heck of a lot better.

is this the only thread about against me there is?
I couldn't find any other one.

well new wave was very sub-par, but their old stuff touched me very deeply, and I like it a lot.

I like it all, Against Me! do it "right" IMO, just make good ass catchy punk. I hate when punkers are all anti a band changing their sound. Wahh they dont sound like irish drunkards who record inside a telephone booth anymore waaaahhhh

It'd help if you knew what the fuck you were talking about, instead of slamming your fists into the keyboard and pressing submit.

Really? Please explain to me then what it is, sure my comment wasn't necessarily laced with kindness, but I'm genuinely curious. That is the overall opinion I've gathered from the punk forum from UG.


and....
