With a name like Anti-Flag, it's no surprise that this Punk Rock band's repertoire is full of overtly political song titles like "Sodom, Gomorrah, Washington, D.C." and "Red, White and Brainwashed." The group's drummer, Pat Thetic
, describes himself as a borderline socialist, but shares a small glimmer of optimism about democracy with Songfacts:
"Well, I think democracy, there's a lot of benefit to it. But really the only thing that it guarantees us is that in 8 years, no matter how much this douche bag is, we can get a new one. So democracy doesn't make us automatically get a better candidate or a better president. It just means that they can't be there for 30 years like in a lot of other places in the world."
