Russia didn’t think it was funny when the Pussy punkers seized a historic church and implored the Virgin Mary to oust President Putin.
The name says it all. It’s Wu-Tang. It’s Fugazi. It’s Wugazi. It’s freaking awesome is what it is.
One minute and fourteen seconds is not a lot of time, but ex-Black Flag frontman Keith Morris’ current band OFF! manages to pack in the punch: hot chicks in glasses, moshpits, brutal wipeouts, guns and of course, the band.
God doesn’t quite save the queen in this scrappy and often hilarious documentary about the making of arguably the most influential punk rock album of all time.
I think Australian punk-pop outfit Bleeding Knees Club are actually young enough to cite Wavves as a musical influence, and an obvious one at that. Still, it’s hard to hate on their mindless fun.
The newest OFF! clip is all gnarly skate wipeouts. Ouch.
In case you would like a little anarchy today, here’s some Trash Talk. Occupy hardcore.
