While NOFX and the rest of the Fat Wreck Chords bands were busy cracking wise-guy jokes about girls, sex, guys and more sex, Propagandhi used their wit to sling some pointed political arrows. These Canadians' songs have a slight Hardcore crunch lurking in the polished, poppy SoCal Skate Punk sound they lifted from NOFX. Propagandhi are known and loved by most for their very vocal, in-your-face, barbed-tongue, leftist political stance. Animal rights, gay rights, imperialism, capitalism, racism...there are few issues that have escaped Propagandhi's soapbox. As serious as they are about politics (very), they aren't afraid to have fun, which is part of why so many people like them. Their songs are catchy and full of energy, anger, urgency...and an unmatched wit. Punk bands that are smart and fun are hard to come by; it figures one of the best of the 1990s would be from Canada.
