There’s an argument to be made that by the end of the 20th century, punk rock had completely eroded to a corporate shell of its former self — Green Day was providing songs for the American Godzilla soundtrack, labels like Drive-Thru Records sprouted up out of nowhere to churn out edgeless tattoo-pop, Hot Topic existed. But the thing about punk music is that there’s always room for a reaction — and there isn’t much better reaction to slickly produced pop-punk than gritty folk punks Andrew Jackson Jihad. With titles like “Joe Arpaio is a Punk,” AJJ’s anthemic songs about white privilege and poverty are modern interpolations of Woody Guthrie protest songs, The Clash and Black Flag. They’re as politically relevant and clever as they are mosh-worthy. Yes, Andrew Jackson Jihad deals with heavy material, but they do it with a snide punk flourish that makes for one of the most dynamic, engaging punk shows you’ll see all year.
