With a name like Anti-Flag, one would never debate (nor probably) dissuade these band members who use their voice to show their distaste for everything from religion to fascism.
Yes, these guys (the original lineup consisting of Justin Sane, Andy Flag and Pat Thetic) cast a wide net when it came to where and what they'd sing about. And they did so while sporting upside down flags as patches on their clothing (a sign of distress), releasing a debut album called "Die for the Government," and crisscrossing North America in a quest to seemingly appear as loud, obnoxious and brazen as possible.
Sure, the band went through four bassists as it blazed a trail across the country. Flag was the first to go, and after Chris Head was added to the lineup in 1997, Chris #2 also jumped in on bass to again complete the four-man group. Through the personnel changes, the band continued to put out albums like "A New Kind of Army" and "Underground Network." Their 2002 effort, "Mobilize," also contained many songs, including "911 for Peace," in response to the World Trade Center terrorist attacks.
In early 2002, Sane released a solo record entitled "Life, Love and the Pursuit of Justice," containing stripped-down versions of Anti-Flag's material. Since then, as always, Anti-Flag has continued to stay musically and politically active, donating profits from album sales to Amnesty International, as well as attending a G-20 protest in their home town. Inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement, the band released its latest album, "The General Strike," in 2012.
