Against Me!

Add Date: April 27

Artist: Against Me!

Album: I Was A Teenage Anarchist (Single)

Label: Sire

Genre: Rock

Comments: Oh, Against Me!, how things have changed. The new single "I Was A Teenage Anarchist" off their forthcoming album is pure pop-punk rock, full of great hooks and a sing-a-long chorus, and it's certainly catchy (and good). But nothing is ever going to be as awesome as their old stuff (sorry, I know that's an obnoxious fan thing to say, but let's be honest) and while it doesn't necessarily seem like Against Me! has stopped trying or gotten terrible by any means, they've definitely grown past their less mature (but perhaps more authentic) punk style. Ironically enough, this title seems to even reference the fact that Against Me! has grown up, considering one of their most known and loved songs off of "Reinventing Axl Rose" is titled "Baby, I'm an Anarchist" ('cause baby, I'm an anarchist, you're a spineless liberaaaal). Ah, how times change. But for what it's worth, this track reaffirms that Against Me! are at least talented, no matter how much their style changes.
