Propagandhi- How to Clean Everything

If you’re sick and tired of bands that use music to express their opinions on politics and issues in the world instead of just entertaining you, I would advise you to stay as far away as possible from Propagandhi.

Propagandhi is definitely known for the messages in their lyrics- they have songs written about sexism, homophobia, the Canadian government, and veganism, for example. But they’re an awesome band even if you don’t pay attention to the lyrics. They’ve got a sense of humour about themselves, the band is tight, the songs are catchy and the guitar chords are weird (I’d tell you exactly what about the chords is weird if I knew anything about guitar chords).

This album’s from 1993 and it’s amazing. Key tracks: Anti-Manifesto (about the punk rock music industry), Ska Sucks, Stick the Fucking Flag Up Your God Damn Ass You Son of a Bitch (about the Canadian government), Hallie Sallasse, Up Your Ass (about religion)… all the songs on this album have a certain lovable quality about them, really. Give it a listen.
