RISE AGAINST - Hardcore-Punk with Message
Anthems for the Nowhere Generation
Musically, Rise Against follow the classic style of bands like Bad Religion and NoFX with their melodic hardcore or rather hard punk, whereby the sing-along choruses are made for arenas. Lyrically, the platinum band consisting exclusively of vegans and vegetarians stands out with its committed stance. It not only supports organizations such as PETA and Sea Sheppard, but also opposes animal testing, environmental destruction, bullying and politicians such as Donald Trump in its socially critical songs. With this, the musicians from Chicago hit the nerve of the youth!
