For Blood And Empire
Though adamantly anti-major-label at one point in their career, Anti-Flag finally decided to emerge from the underground and make the leap from the indie world to the realms of RCA in April 2005. Thus, after being together for over ten years and boasting almost as many releases, For Blood and Empire marks Anti-Flag's entry into the big leagues. Fans and naysayers alike couldn't help but question the band's new label status leading up to the album's release. Could a group with such a brash, heated political agenda and in-your-face leftist politics actually -- and believably -- fit alongside Kelly Clarkson and the Strokes with their credibility intact? At the very least, the band's outrage and frustration hadn't been tempered. Anti-Flag was conceived pissed-off at the government (among other subjects), and things sure hadn't cooled down with George W and crew comfortably residing in the White House throughout the early 2000s. As would be expected then, For Blood and Empire is boiling over with vehement anti-Bush attacks and confrontational lyrics that overwhelmingly target the war in Iraq -- from war profiteering to consequences of depleted uranium to omnipresent propaganda to casualties on both sides of the fight. With all of the singalong, fist-in-the-air anthems still present (and more than enough background "woahs"), fans should at least be happy to hear that their beloved Anti-Flag hasn't compromised its grasp of the surging chorus. After all, the scrappiness and raw rage of earlier efforts gave way to the more pop-oriented and melodic nature of later work a few albums back, and this effort is no different. Even the opening notes of "I'd Tell You But..." are comfortingly familiar, as there's always been something about their guitar work that makes a song utterly Anti-Flag even before Justin Sane's distinctive vocals kick in. There's a sort of a ska-ish feel to "The Press Corpse" and "The W.T.O. Kills Farmers," while "This Is the End (For You My Friend)," could just as easily fit on a Good Charlotte record. And though the slight ramble of the acoustic-driven "1 Trillion Dollar$" sounds like Sane's solo work, it gets as close to country balladry as Anti-Flag is probably ever going to get. The album is a tad clean and subdued, but this doesn't necessarily detract from Anti-Flag's message, which comes across as loud and clear as it always does. Kids picking this up won't necessarily have to figure politics out on their own, as Anti-Flag tells them exactly what to think and the liner notes brim with quotes and explanations backing their ideas up further. So with a new home on RCA, the band is now kind of like the Hot Topic version of Propagandhi. Leftist beliefs with rounded edges that are accessibly packaged yet still offensive enough to some to be "punk." And while their convictions are assuredly sincere -- and the topics brought up important to discuss -- something about the band can't help to cause one to step back and raise an eyebrow a bit. Overall, and despite its major label status, For Blood and Empire is through and through another Anti-Flag album. Thus, those who enjoy the guys' political snottiness will find plenty to like here, but the album won't do anything to convert those who have always found them slightly annoying. [This is the clean version of the album.]
...And Out Come The Wolves
...And Out Come the Wolves is the third studio album by the American punk rock band Rancid. It was released on August 22, 1995, through Epitaph Records. Rancid's popularity and catchy songs made them the subject of a major label bidding war that ended with the band staying on Epitaph. With a sound heavily influenced by ska, which called to mind Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman's past in Operation Ivy, Rancid became one of the few bands of the mid-to late-1990s boom in punk rock to retain much of its original fanbase. In terms of record sales and certifications, …And Out Come the Wolves is a popular album in the United States. It produced three hit singles: "Roots Radicals", "Time Bomb" and "Ruby Soho", that earned Rancid its heaviest airplay on MTV and radio stations to date. All the singles charted on Modern Rock Tracks. …And Out Come the Wolves was certified gold by the RIAA on January 22, 1996. It was certified platinum on September 23, 2004.

White Trash, Two Heebs and a Bean was also the first NOFX album not produced by Brett Gurewitz, who produced the band's first three albums. According to the liner notes for the album, the original title was going to be White Trash, Two Kikes and a Spic, but one of the band members' family members thought it was offensive, so they changed it to the title of the actual release.

How Could Hell Be Any Worse? was recorded over two time periods at Track Record Studios in North Hollywood, California, during October–November 1980 and again in January 1981. After the original recording sessions, drummer Jay Ziskrout left Bad Religion and was replaced by his friend and the band's roadie Pete Finestone, who was brought in to complete the rest of the album.

Less Talk, More Rock
Less Talk, More Rock is the second full-length album by the Canadian punk rock band Propagandhi, and the last album to feature bassist John K. Samson. Released in 1996.
Chris Hannah described the album as a conscious decision to be more confrontational, noting the presence of the term "gay-positive" on the album cover. The album was expressly political to weed out the "jocks" and "bros" in the audience.
"When How to Clean came out, we had no idea anyone would like it, then we went and played some shows and all of a sudden, oh, who are all these fucking jocks and skaters and surfers here? Fuck them," says Hannah. "Let's draw a line in the sand, let's make sure we're not misunderstood. We have these values, let's make sure nobody misunderstands them, even if it separates the wheat from the chaff and we're the chaff and it's just us. Let's lay it out on the table."
My Republic is the seventh studio album by the Santa Cruz, California-based hardcore punk band Good Riddance, released June 27, 2006 through Fat Wreck Chords. It marked the band's return from an almost three-year period of inactivity, during which singer and primary songwriter Russ Rankin had been active in his new band Only Crime while guitarist Luke Pabich had started a side project called Outlie. It also marked the return of drummer Sean Sellers to Good Riddance, replacing Dave Wagenschutz who had played on the band's two previous albums Symptoms of a Leveling Spirit and Bound by Ties of Blood and Affection. Sellers had previously been a member of Good Riddance from 1996 to 1999, playing on A Comprehensive Guide to Moderne Rebellion, Ballads from the Revolution, and Operation Phoenix, and had played with Pabich in Outlie during Good Riddance's hiatus.
Good Riddance had recorded their three previous albums at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, Colorado, but for My Republic they returned to Motor Studios in San Francisco, where they had recorded 1998's Ballads from the Revolution.

The Lawrence Arms
Oh! Calcutta! is the fifth full-length album by the Chicago punk rock band The Lawrence Arms, released in 2006 by Fat Wreck Chords. It is the band's third studio album to be released on Fat Wreck Chords. In comparison with their previous album The Greatest Story Ever Told, Oh! Calcutta! is considerably faster-paced and more aggressive. It also finds Chris McCaughan and Brendan Kelly sharing vocal duties in an almost duet style, while on previous albums the two had split most of the lead vocals between songs. Brendan Kelly has stated that this is his favorite Lawrence Arms album.
The album's title demonstrates the band's propensity to juxtapose the twin elements of "legitimate" literature and philosophy and American pop culture, referencing both the 1969 off-Broadway revue of the same name and a comment made by Mother Teresa that conditions in Chicago's south side depressed her more than the poverty of Calcutta. The title of the song "Are You There Margaret? It's Me, God" references the book Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. by Judy Blume, while the title "Jumping the Shark" references a pop culture term describing an episode of Happy Days.
Somery is a compilation album by the American punk rock band the Descendents, released in 1991 through SST Records. It compiles songs from their Fat EP and the albums Milo Goes to College, I Don't Want to Grow Up, Enjoy!, and All.

The album continued the band's style of fast, abrasive punk rock with tongue-in-cheek humor and sarcastic lyrics. Several songs from the album would remain staples in the band's live set throughout the rest of their career, and many fans and critics view it alongside their first album Full Length as among their best recordings.
Haunted Cities is the second studio album by the American punk rock/hip hop band Transplants. It was released on June 21, 2005 via LaSalle Records/Atlantic Records, and sold close to 34,000 copies in its first week and came in at #28 on the US Billboard 200, #72 on the UK Albums Chart, #140 on the Top 200 Albums France.
Audio production of the record was handled by Tim Armstrong and Dave Carlock. Rancid's Matt Freeman, The Slackers' Vic Ruggiero, Cypress Hill's B-Real and Sen Dog, Dilated Peoples' Rakaa, and Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. made their appearances on the album as additional musicians and vocalists. Houston-based rapper Paul Wall made screwed and chopped version of the album, released months later the same year.
The album spawned three singles: "Gangsters and Thugs", "What I Can't Describe" and "Crash and Burn". Its lead single, "Gangsters and Thugs", peaked at #25 on the US Alternative Songs and #35 on the UK Singles Chart.
Andiamo (Explicit Content) (U.S. Version)
Andiamo is the second studio album released by punk band Authority Zero. It was released on June 30, 2004, on Lava Records and includes the single "Revolution" and a cover of the Wall of Voodoo song "Mexican Radio", with small lyrical changes included to include the song as the band's statement against the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The album title is Italian and means, literally, "we go," but can also be translated as "let's go." The title of the album can be split to read "And I Am 0", as seen faintly in the CD insert. I Am Zero is the name of Authority Zero's live DVD, which was released in 2005. "Revolution" and "Painted Windows" had music videos made.
Cavalcade is the third full-length studio album by The Flatliners. It was released on April 13, 2010. It features 12 songs, one of which was previously released on their 7" EP Cynics.

The guitar on the album was supposed to be played by former Guitarist of Rise Against, Todd Mohney.

Big D and the Kids Table
Strictly Rude is the fourth studio album from Boston ska punk act Big D and the Kids Table. The album peaked at 42 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart.
The album's title track is largely derived from Althea & Donna's "Uptown Top Ranking" which topped the UK charts in February 1978. While most of the song's lyrics have been rewritten to bear little semblance to the original version, the song's chorus sees the original line "Strictly Roots" changed to the track and album's title, "Strictly Rude".

The modern songs are inspired by my love of country rock in vein of Gram Parsons, The Band, Neil Young". It was produced by fellow Bad Religion member, Brett Gurewitz, and features appearances by Jolie Holland, and members of The Weakerthans, in contrast to American Lesion, where Graffin recorded the entire album by himself. A special Vinyl edition was released to celebrate Record Store Day 2017.
