  • This song pokes fun at the keyboard jockeys who act real tough when they are sitting at their computers typing on the Internet, but get real soft as soon as they leave the house. This was a time before social media when much of the discourse on the web was anonymous, often in chat rooms. >>

  • Running just 1:33, "To The Core" is pure hardcore punk. Rise Against was still on the indie punk label Fat Wreck Chords, but they soon got a deal with Geffen Records, which released their next album, Siren Song Of The Counter Culture, in 2004.
