United and Strong

Album: Victim in Pain (1984)

Songfacts®:

  • A track from Agnostic Front's first album, "United and Strong" addresses the fractures within the hardcore scene as schisms developed among metal and punk offshoots.

    "I've always felt like we need to be united, we need to be strong," lead singer Roger Miret said in his Songfacts interview. "Everybody. All types of races, black and white, punks and skins. For everyone. That song is an outcry for us to stick together and get through whatever those tough times that were separating us, to bring us back together. "
