I know there used to be an Anti-Flag thread here, but it seems to have disappeared...
(Let me know if this needs to go in pop-punk or something, as they've gotten more poppy.)

I saw them for the first time last Friday, and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Justin Sane wasn't there, however. His nephew was injured recently and he was visiting him in Florida. But Chris #2 was able to sing all the songs fairly well, so it was still a great show.

For the last song, they put Pat Thetic's drum kit into the pit and he played there. It was pretty awesome, and afterward I got him to sign my shoe and got a picture with him...




Any discussion about Anti-Flag goes in here, I suppose.
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

They are my token unpunx band. I absolutely love die for the gov. and everything else up to for blood and empire. Everything after that i cant listen to. And whether they are punk or not, I always thought they were pretty talented musicians.

I enjoy them quite a bit. I know they're hypocritical and all that jazz but they're so damn catchy and whatnot! And while I disagree on many of their views, they're passion for their beliefs is very inspiring. One of my greatest music experiences was being front row at their concert shouting along to Die For Your Government. Specifically the F**K YOU! Part.

Wow! I was at that show! Henry Fonda right?
They were pretty damn amazing, but without justin it just isn't the same.
Though when when the two guys had to kiss Pat and #2... it was just unforgettable.

Chris #2 is a machine.

Looked up some videos from that show you went to, how he manages to sing Justin's songs without compromising his intricate basslines is just amazing.

I feel like this band really blows now. Because they sound like pop-punk bullcrap. They were good up to Die for The Government, but then their sound just changed way too much. To poppy compared to their old raspy sound.

Die For Your Government is a good album. If you're as punx as me you can't like anything else.

I just watched those videos of that show. They are a lot better without Justin Sane.

God thats such a lame stage name.

I think you would fit in quite well. You have decent music taste and don't seem to be an idiot.

True, Aiden was shit. But i gained respect for the fact that they know people hate them and try to make a show of it. E.g. (attempted) wall of death.
But they still suck.


I agree, it was amazing to see #2 play his basslines WHILE singing. But I'm pretty sure they simplified some of their songs because of justins replacement. Can't blame em though, after all #2 said he had 1 day to learn their whole set.

Yeah, seriously. The fact that he was talking about how they're "not just some pussy emo band" really got on my nerves. Either way, Anti-Flag killed.

The guy who learned Justin's parts in one day was a true hero.

What did you think of Broadway Calls?
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

It really pissed me off when he was talking down to the crowd, "baby need a bottle?". How immature can you get?

Regarding Broadway Calls, they were fairly entertaining. They're better than most of the pop/punk bands I know of.
Drummer was cool, just because he did very well for performing with only bare essentials.

Whenever I hear people say that Anti-Flag has some really good musicians (technical ability) it always makes me smile because this means I could impress sooooooooooooo many 15 year olds with my guitar skillz.

Cameron killed the joke.

Anyways, do any of you kids have an example of the bassist doing something impressive? I can't find any because I can only slog through their crappy music one song at a time.
