Throwback Tuesdays: Against All Authority - "Lifestyle of Rebellion"
This track, "Lifestyle of Rebellion," comes from the band's 1996 debut album, Destroy What Destroys You. Now out of print, the disc was released by the now-defunct Far Out Records, and featured 22 short but explosive songs. In retrospect, some of the political lyrics featured, let's say, oversimplications: "Fuck your system and fuck you too," "Here's another fuck you song," etc. To pissed-off teenagers and early twentysomethings, though, this was amazing stuff. And the album's best tunes (none of which clock in over two-and-a-half minutes) still stand up as top-notch nuggets of scrappy, raw power.
AAA has continued to release an album every couple of years. The last full-length, The Restoration of Chaos and Order, came out in 2006, so the band is about due for a new one. Get to it, guys.
