Anti-Flag, fronted by vocalist and guitarist Justin Sane, debuted with the
viscerally political hardcore rants of
Die For the Government (New Red Archives, 1996),
Their System Doesn't Work For You (Olympic, 1998) and
A New Kind of Army (Go-Kart, 1999).
They began to "sell out" (although they maintained a semblance of political
Underground Network (Fat Wreck Chords, 2001), the live and studio
Mobilize (A-F Records, 2002),
The Terror State (Fat Wreck Chords, 2003),
For Blood and Empire (RCA, 2006),
and even an album produced by Tony Visconti (the producer who "invented" glam-rock stars T.Rex and David Bowie in the 1970s),
The Bright Lights of America (RCA, 2008),
and the mediocre, predictable, uninspired
The People or the Gun (SideOneDummy, 2009).
Other than recycling stereotypes of agit-prop punk (without the musical skills
of the pioneers) and desperately trying to find an original sound, these albums
were little more than footnotes to the history of punk-rock.
