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.
