Rise Against, formed in 1999 in Chicago and fronted by vocalist Tim McIlrath,
harked back to the "popcore" of the 1980s on The Unraveling (2001),
notably the power-ballad Six Ways to Sunday.
The slabs of supercharged melodic hardcore of
Revolutions Per Minute (2002), with Todd Mohney on guitar,
were indeed a powerful reminder of the lost strength of hardcore punk-rock
(Black Masks & Gasoline, To The Core).
Siren Song of the Counter Culture (2004), with Chris Chasse on guitar,
still boasted State of the Union, Paper Wings and
Dancing For Rain.
The songs of The Sufferer & the Witness (2006) frequently sounded like
leftovers that rarely (Ready To Fall) packed the punch of the previous
albums: sure enough, this was the album that turned them into stars, thanks
mainly to the
anthemic singalong Swing Life Away.
Appeal To Reason (2008) was simply selling to the new generations the
sound of hardcore of the 1980s, grunge of the 1990s and even a power-ballad
in a 1970s style.
