Fat Wreck Chords - Even Less Cred Than Epitaph?

Casey Dorrell

Fat Wreck Chords - Often maligned by pop punk purists but has had punk bands like Propagandhi (Download Song), Good Riddance (Download Song), Lagwagon(Download Song), Face to Face, Bracket (Download Song), NOFX (Download Song), Snuff (Download Song), 88 Fingers Louie, No Use for a Name(Download Song), Me First and the Gimme Gimmes(Download Song), Sick Of It All (Download Song), and Screeching Weasel (Another Song).

Of the above bands, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes are probably the most entertaining and the least liked by those who dislike Fat Wreck Chords. Probably with good reason. MFGG only do cover songs and don't do much with them other than add some swearing, simplify the chords, and speed up the tempo. The supergroup boasts a member of Foo Fighters, NOFX, Swinging Utters and Lagwagon. Their cover of Science Fiction Double Feature (Rocky Horror Picture Show) is awesome (Download).

Against Me is a really great band. They have an almost Billy-Braggish folk sound. I'm guessing there's a sub-genre called folk-punk and that's where they'd fit. Their songs are generally somewhere between folk, pop-punk, and hardcore. By far, their best song has been Disco Before the Breakdown.. which sounds too much like Make Up the Breakdown (Hot Hot Heat) making me never remember the damn name.. anyhow, there's a ep out there with the song on it. There's also Limewire and the like. Either way, get the song ( a song that's less great, sorry).
