Captain Anarchy

Album: A New Kind Of Army (1999)

Songfacts®:

  • This is one of the lighter songs from the misfit punk group Anti-Flag. It is about the typical "poser," which is a person who acts punk just for show and isn't a "true punk." In this case, it's about a kid who calls himself "Captain Anarchy" who just does it for the attention of his peers and to cause trouble. In ensuing years, Anti-Flag became more political in their lyrics and often spoke out against the American government and its "War on Terror." >>
