Resistance, anger, frustration towards global social issues, and many other important topics that we often overlook. Perhaps that’s how the music of American punk-rockers Anti-Flag could be summed up in a few words. They have been shouting all of the above to the world with commitment for over thirty years.
A four-piece American punk rock band from Pennsylvania, known for their strong opinions. They have released 12 studio albums in their long career, the last one in 2020.
The band was formed in 1988 and has had many musicians rotate in and out of the drummer and guitarist positions since that. But the two founding members, Justin Sane and Pat Thetic are stalwarts of the group. 1996 saw the release of their first album, Die For the Government. Their third album, A New Kind of Army, contains themes of abortion, political corruption, racism, and brutality. For the release of this album, they also explained the band’s name – it does not mean anti-American, but anti-war. It means it is better to live in peace and togetherness. Anti-Flag means unity.
