It’s Election Day, so what better time to share a few songs from punk bands taking on the American establishment?
7 Seconds – Fuck Your Amerika
Adolescents – Democracy
Black Flag – American Waste
Dayglo Abortions – Wake Up America
Dead Kennedys – Stars and Strips of Corruption
Nation of Ulysses – Target U.S.A.
Poison Idea – Ugly American
Reagan Youth – USA
Scream – U Suck A
Honorable Mention: Bad Brains – Attitude
This is not a song about politics, democracy or America specifically, but after this election year, we need to be reminded to keep that P.M.A. (And I needed a reason to use the Glen E. Friedman photo at the top, because it’s one of my favorites.)
