The most "important" band going right now? Discuss...



And here's some visual evidence (probably the two most meaningful and politically charged videos of the year to this point):

"Help Is On The Way" and "Make It Stop (September's Children)"

shitty, derivative pop punk, and the video doesn't even match the help is on the way  song- its about the gulf oil spill if you listen to the banal lyrics, so its got that going for it too...  If you want some good politically charged punk, check out propagandhi- they garbage all over these guys, both lyrically and musically.

good riddance, who misfits mentioned above also had a few good albums that were very "politically charged"  For god and country, balladsd from the revolution, and operation phoenix are all pretty solid.
