            Not lyrically, but GYBE has a pretty interesting angle as far as the way in which they navigate the corporate rock game.

                Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'm usually pretty naive in bands messages.

                  +1. These guys just get better and better, their newest album is killer (Potemkin and Supporting Caste are still my all time favorite

                    dropkick murphys, chumbawamba, rise against to some extent



                    basically any band where you can see half the audience sporting dreadlocks and not being black
                    several thousand dollars worth of gear and about five bucks worth of playing

                      Local H new album is political.
                      RoboPimp: yup, part of growing up is abandoning any hopes and dreams and giving up on anything that you feel passionate about or makes you happy. then comes years of waiting for sweet death.
