Pittsburg punk rockers Anti-Flag made waves from the late eighties on through the early aughts with politically-charged anthems and in-your-face iconography (their logo is a “gun star” composed of broken M16 rifles). The kind of band your parents would hate for their teenager to find, the foursome always seem to be protesting alongside whoever happens to be protesting, wielding scowls and guitars the whole time. While their songs can come off as raucous leftist PSAs, there’s no denying the pull of the frenetic rhythms and the outright catchiness of the choruses.
