    Hmmm, without knowing them personally, I suppose I'd have to take them at their word, but I always found the song to be really snarky and kind of stupid (not that I mind if you listen to it, of course, to each their own)

    In my mind (although this is just because I hate that song) they wrote it with a snarky attitude, realised some people didn't like it and now they're saving face by saying it was a joke. Then again, I just don't like anti-flag, so I suppose I'm speaking with bias. Also, I've never really noticed them being influenced by Crass in any way. But that also, is a matter of opinion...

    I do like Anti-Flag but that song I don't like because yeah, I agree that it's kinda stupid. At the same time I trust that they weren't seriously dissing Crass with it.

    I just read a bit of more of the thread, and I wonder what some of you expect from punk or music in general. The music generally isn't going to reach anywhere we as a (would be) movement aren't.

    it was 1982, and they were like 15 and 16 at the time. The music more than makes up for the lyrics.

    I don't think age has anything to do with it, seeing as I feel that myself and my young peers can write better songs than that one. But that's a matter of opinion, really.

    um they sound like carbon copies of far superior fahfahfah punk songs before them like i said borrring and the only anti thing about them is their name, divide and conquer, no thanx

    the only people who attack people with spikes and say things like 'they think they're superior' are the same people who don't talk with us and are usually against us all, remind me of the mainstrem crap stream fuckos, no mediocrity, go listen to early nofx for frigs haha

    Anti flag sold out with the bright lights of america i stood behind them until that album while i wouldnt sign to a major they did it for the right reasons but when bright lights came out it was done while there subject matter is still relevant its more major label friendly working on the inside will eventually work inside you

    Why do people dislike The Exploited? Because the faux masses sport their shirts without knowing who they are? I wouldn't be here if I hadn't heard The Exploited all those years ago... as for Anti-Flag, I thought they were ok when I first heard "Die For Your Government" but it soon became clear that they are fake as fuck. Before they signed to a major - all the signs were there. They have no message other than cattering to teenage angst and limp-wristed rebellion. Oh-look-at-me Daddy... I died my hair and I smoke and... fuck you!!

    With that said, they did write a couple of catchy songs... fuckers.
