Release Date: 2005 | Tracklist


26 bands that all think Bush Jr. is a boob. Believe me, there were A LOT more bands that wanted to be on this comp! A CD with tons of unreleased songs and a bonus DVD that's packed with content. But im not here to talk about politics or war. Im talking about MUSIC.

Well this album has some really good songs, with bands like NOFX, Alkaline trio, SUm 41, The Offspring, Rise against, THe ataris and tons of other recongnised bands no wonder is a really good album and for its price...its really worth it.

All of the songs talk about why they think george bush has done...everything wrong and that he is a moron and has no brain... Dont ask me about that.

This album has some really awesome songs and tons of unrealeased songs or pre-realeased like give it all from rise against is my favorite of the whole album. Then sum 41 rocks with Moron and alkaline trio with warbrain. BUt with so many songs in this album its impossible to pick the best or the worst. Heaven is falling from the ataris is an acoustic song not the best audio quality but it starts with some words that fit very good in this song . Many of the songs have these recordings of important politicians talking about why is Irak war so unnecesary or any other bad thing regarding bush and politics!!! No W is an example. A very strong song by Ministry the strongest in the album . Baghdad by The Offspring is a really good song a nice bass intro and a solo with an arabian feeling with fine lyrics talks about the soldiers that are now fighting in irak. Aother of my favorite tracks is Jaw, Knee, Music by NOFX. REally good song talking of "johnny" a punk rocker teenager that has to go to war and gets shot. To end the album a really really good song by less than jake "The brightsst bulb has burned out" featuring Billy Bragg. I think that was the best way to end the album makin this album reallly one of my favorites. Im only mentioning some of the songs remember there are 26 songs of different bands not one is similar to the other.With so many awesome songs i could keep going but thats it for now.

A preety good album with a whole bunch of good bands put together and songs that really are worth hearing. I bought this album for 12 dolars and included an DVD. It includes vidoes:
by NOFX - FRanco Un-American
by Strike Anywhere - Infrared
by Bad Religion - Sorrow (personal fav.)
by Anti-Flag - Turncoat
Cool bonus features also included documentaries and some other cool stuff.

Its preety cheap and its worth it soo give it a shot more that song will be in your favs list.

4.4/5

Sum 41 doesn't belong on the same compilation as Bad Religion. The compilation itself is horrible, and a good deal of these bands know nothing about politics.

Alright review, I guess.

Meh, it doesn't matter. Mentioning them in the same sentence is bad enough.

Why is Jello Biafra on this? He's better than that.

You also said in the review that you weren't going to talk about "politics and war," which the whole album is based upon. You hardly describe most of the songs beyond "it rocks" and other vague statements.

Theres actually some pretty nice songs on here, if the album title and concept wasnt so stupid people would probably like these more.
