It should come as no surprise that the punk-rock community went to the mat in expressing their displeasure with the 2004 White House administration by releasing the CD/DVD combo ROCK AGAINST BUSH VOL. 1. More than just a 26-track rant against authority, this collection, compiled by Fat Wreck Chords owner/NOFX frontman Fat Mike, brings together a broad range of pop-punk acts whose choice of well-written songs are only superseded by Fat Mike's thoughtful liner notes. Here Mike points out that the purpose of ROCK AGAINST BUSH is not about "being punk rock and hating the government," but rather "being punk rock and changing the government."
To that end, the roster of acts involved range from the lollipop punk of Sum 41 ("Moron") and impassioned emo of New Found Glory ("No News Is Good News") to the righteous rants of Jello Biafra and D.O.A. ("That's Progress"). Sprinkled throughout the compilation are previously unreleased and rare songs, including the Ataris' lo-fi reading of Bad Religion's "Heaven Is Falling," a new version of the Offspring's 1991 song "Baghdad" (originally written about the first Bush administration), and Billy Bragg's sprightly collaboration with Less Than Jake on their track "The Brightest Bulb Has Burned Out."
Rolling Stone (p.89) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[A] refreshingly pointed collection of mostly unreleased but strong cuts..."
