iTunes Editors’ Notes

White Crosses was Against Me!'s second major-label album, but it was the fifth studio long-player recorded by the punk veterans. It was the first time the band recorded with new drummer George Rebelo (from Hot Water Music) following the departure of Warren Oakes, so yes, the band’s sound has changed. From the onset of the opening title track, however, it’s evident that Against Me! may be more interested in retaining various primary elements of punk rather than predictably adhering to them. The band's music still carries the fist-pumping, pithy angst that its fans know and love, but Against Me!'s maturation really shines through in the songwriting, especially in the anthemic “I Was a Teenage Anarchist,” where band leader Tom Gabel takes a personal, endearing look back on the shattered ideals of youth. This isn't to say the lyrics are no longer politically driven—“Suffocation” spits venom at the apathetic hipster generation with lambasting lyrics like “Stoned complacent ambivalent/Mass communicating with shared subconscious/Suffocation modern life in the western world.”

Customer Reviews

Good stuff, brings back memories :D

I first found out about Against Me! at UCR's Heat, they headlined with lil john, red jumpsuit, and some others. Their mosh pit was decent but the music brings back good times. Anyways the noise is good, buy it!

not as gritty as old stuff

These guys sound more polished then ever, but they are awesome! Their live show is fantastic and you just find yourself singing along!

Change can be good

I never understood why some fans of this band are so against new wave and this album. just because a band changes doesn't means they become worse. this is Against Me!'s most complete album they've made. this is from the opinion of someone who crowd surfed to Baby I'm and Anarchist and led the crowd in verses of Pints of Guinness at their last concert. Musically though, this is Against Me! at their finest

Before becoming a full-fledged punk band, Against Me! was an acoustic solo project spearheaded by Laura Jane Grace, who began playing shows as a 17-year-old in Gainesville, Florida. Starting in 1997, Grace performed as a solo act wherever anyone would have her, drawing much influence from early acoustic protest music. By 2001, she'd beefed up her sound with the help of a full band — including guitarist James Bowman, drummer Warren Oakes, and bassist Andrew Seward — but there would always...
