about

16 songs by 16 bands recorded at Howl Street Recordings in Milwaukee, WI from April 21-23, and 11 other songs contributed from anti-Trump musicians across the Midwest and elsewhere.

As with UNINTIMIDATED, each band that recorded at Howl Street had 2 hours to record their track to achieve maximum urgency. Once the two hours were up, it was time to clear out for the next band.

All proceeds from the downloads of this compilation go towards Planned Parenthood and local Milwaukee soup kitchens. We do not profit off political shitheads.

The money we raise may be a drop in the bucket, but enough drops together can create a flood. Make your drop count.

Thanks.

Track Name: Ahab's Ghost - Bastard, Coward, Liar
Stranger than fiction,
Darker than death,
Cattle herded to their doom

Barrels of bullshit,
Proud and grotesque,
Fascists in the war room

Ego and madness,
Wrath and deceit,
Some lessons can't be learned

Spewing out words
That are stuck on repeat,
Let's make the tyrant burn

'Cause he's a...

Bastard!
Visage of apocalypse
Coward!
Bottom feeding nepotist
Liar!
On your words
You will drown
The hammer of justice
Will strike you down!

Disciple of darkness,
Soul-less elite,
Knuckle dragging creeper

Holy Ghost harkens,
A brain incomplete,
Face of the reaper

Stranger than fiction,
Darker than death,
Cattle herded to their doom

Barrels of bullshit,
Proud and grotesque,
Fascists in the war room

Freedom fighters!
Torchbearers of revolution!
Hear me!

Generations of the future will inherit our every flaw, our crises.
For their sake we must topple our nefarious leaders from their top heavy pedestals, exposing their every fraud.

The power of the ideal is the impetus driving us toward inevitable revolution.
It is the secret weapon of the masses.

No cage may contain it.
no obstacle may discourage it.
no force may kill it.
Ideals are invincible!

The chains that you bind us with we will break.
The cells you confine us with
we will escape.
The walls you divide us with
we will topple.
The systems you oppress with
we will throttle
Track Name: War Brides - White Slob
you see it you need it
break my heart rip it out and you’ll bleed it
you see it you need it
take my brain cut it up and you’ll eat it now
you told me things were gonna change
they’re still the same
you see it you need it
beat me down cause you know I’m defeated
you see it you need it
gouge my eyes make me think I believe it
you see it you need it
take me brain cut it up and you’ll eat it
things were never gonna change
you’re all the same
things will never fucking change
you’re all to blame
Track Name: Joshua Wayne Hensley (of the rutabega) - The Plague
i saw a man crawl out of the pile
his eyes were red and as fake as his smile
his teeth were fangs and his words were the plague
i don't believe him and i'm not afraid

oh to fly above the cretins and all of their politics

i have the best friends around
they never leave me dead on the ground
they let me cry all over their clothes
i hope they die after they get old

oh you don't understand the qualities that we are dealing with
Track Name: Something to Do - For One Not All
You really think you’re something special and great
Self promoting always gloating always filled with hate
Not one ounce of empathy, not one ounce of heart
Talking so much to hide a shocking lack of smarts

<CHORUS>
Thought we were smart, thought we had heart, I’m appalled
Thought we were smart, we’re not so smart
A dummy building walls
Small ego talking tall
A phony awful president for one, not all

There’s allegations that you’ve grabbed and raped and leered,
So many lawsuits that you’ve somehow disappeared,
Taking advantage of misogyny and fear,
Racism and nepotism worked to get you here

<CHORUS>
Thought we were smart, thought we had heart, I’m appalled
Thought we were smart, we’re not so smart
A dummy building walls
Small ego talking tall
A phony awful president for one, not all

Huge!
Sad!
Tremendous!
Fake News!

<CHORUS>
Thought we were smart, thought we had heart, I’m appalled
Thought we were smart, we’re not so smart
A dummy building walls
Small ego talking tall
A phony awful president for one, not all
Track Name: Sex Scenes - Brutality TV
Fat gut with a little brain
your ugly face has us going insane
tiny hands and that fucking hair
It was a joke but now I'm getting scared.
Golden toilets, golden showers too
come a little closer i can piss on you
polluting forests and the water's doomed
you got this nation running to it's tomb

I aint got much more time for this shit
donald trump you should be just a bit nervous
Your ivory tower is gonna be painted black
we're rising up and taking everything back

Fancy cars while the nation starves
you're only thinking about cakes to carve
launching missiles but you don't even know
to which country they are going to go
Who gives a fuck when the taxes are due
when you have sex slaves in your living room
can't handle going any deeper
let's cut the head off of our fearless leader
Track Name: The Glacial Speed - Foregone Conclusion
Apologies for this intrusion,
but you don't know what you're talking about
My disappointment is a forgone conclusion,
but I can't figure that you'll figure it out

Do you know what you're inviting,
what you're inciting with the things that you claim?
I've gotta question the intentions and motivations
'cause they seem kinda strange.

It's only a matter of time
Before it all unwinds
And breaks your heart for good

Apologies for this confusion,
But I'm afraid that we have to insist.
If you're under the delusion
that this is greatness, well you'd better desist.

It's only a matter of time
Before It all unwinds
And breaks your heart,
And takes apart
Everything that's good

You know that we won't wait
'Cause we hate your hate!
Track Name: Storm Clouds - Define our Generation
On that fateful day they bought into all the lies
This deception should come as no surprise
Harkening back to the times of slavery
So shameful in our troubled history
Ask yourself, where do we go from here?

Time has run out (We must take a stand)
Resist oppression (In the face of tyranny)
Stand proud, scream loud (Cause we're not giving in)
It's up to us right now to look out for each other

The abuse of power comes as no surprise
To the marginalized and most deprived
He preyed on all their deepest fears
And told them what they want to hear
Do they need to be told he's their enemy?

Time has run out (We must take a stand)
Resist oppression (In the face of tyranny)
Stand proud, scream loud (Cause we're not giving in)
It's up to us right now to look out for each other

Progress will not be held hostage by ignorance
Or resistance to information
We won't go back to a fabled past
False narratives riddled with injustices

What kind of person do you want to be?
Will you stand up and fight?
Or will you go down quietly?

Time has run out (We must take a stand)
Resist oppression (In the face of tyranny)
Stand proud, scream loud (Cause we're not giving in)
It's up to us right now to look out for each other

It's a woman's choice to decide
Love is about who we are inside
There's no question anymore that we're all one

So ask yourself, what do I want my legacy to be?
How will history view me?
Do I possess a sense of empathy?

We won’t go back
Our reaction will define our generation
Track Name: The God Eaters - Fire and Rain
Wipe the dust out from your eyes.
Sweep the floor inside your mind.
Bullheaded demons have taken the reins.
In this age of machines, Im a wide open plain.

Since you're fire, I must be rain.

Ive decided in my mind, that my breath is a protest to you.
And even if I wanted to hate you, and sometimes I do.
Theres already enough in you to sink the moon.
And Ive tossed away the idea of fear, this is not a new frontier, your hate parade ends right here.

So clear the dust out of your eyes.
Sweep the floor inside your mind.
Bullheaded demons have taken the reins
In this age of machines Im a wide open plain.

And since you're fire I must be rain.
Track Name: Joshua Backes (of The Grasping at Straws) - It's Not a Threat, It's Just a Question
Don’t feed me no line that I’ve heard before!
I can’t take no more.
I can’t take no more.

Turned off my TV but it still gets in.
All those sayin’s
And all those daemons.

At what point have you crossed the line,
Have you harmed the quality of life?
Do I have the right,
To blow your fuckin’ brains out on the floor?

“Keep yourself to yourself!”
“Keep yourself to yourself!”
Well that’s bull shit,
You’re a herd animal and that’s it.

They don’t know any better than you.

Well, look me in the eye
And you’ll see me rationalize
All the violence in disguise
And everyone’s just helpin’ themselves

They don’t know any better than you.

Don’t feed me no line that I’ve heard before!
I can’t take no more.

With Science and Religion wrapped in bold salesmen hype
and Jim Crow Jr. is the strong silent type.

At what point have we crossed the line,
Have we harmed the quality of life,
Do they have the right,
To blow our fucking brains out on the floor?

They don’t know any better than you,
They don’t know any better than you,
They don’t know any better than you.
Track Name: LIFES - Shameless
He will not save you
Duped by bluster and bigots
They did not save you
Humanity's self-inflicted downfall
Count on yourself / Open your eyes
Blinded by spite for him / Blinded by hate for her / Blinded by love for him
Complicit to uphold your privilege and your power

Devour the world to oblivion / Shameless bastards
Bleeding the people like leeches / Clinging to all that is stolen

He will not destroy us
He will not destroy us
He will not destroy us
He will not destroy us
Resist and fight
Track Name: Evacuate the Earth - We The People
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Track Name: Snow Burial - Burn Down the Crown
Something new, bleeding, born from the wastes
Their eyes see our darkness just as it was

They survived high
Fly with the kings of yore

No way out. They're thriving all on their own
No need for us or our gods: profit and loss
Made it all dark, melted it down into a fetid pool
Cracked the mantle

They survived high
Fly with the kings of yore

Their eyes see stardust floating in winds
Feeding off escaping volcanic floes

We carved a warning in the crust of the earth
Assemble your masses
Burn down the crown
Track Name: Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends - Enough Talk
Didn't expect a revolution, but I expected more than this.
I wanted to use my voice, but instead I'll use my fists.
It's darkest before the dawn, but not half as dark as inside
can't start a revolution outside, until you start a revolution inside

Enough talk, enough talk
The time has come today
Enough talk, enough talk
Don't let fantastic become mundane

Vengeance in my heart. And an insult on my lips
You thought you knew what to expect. You expected nothing like this.
Nice wont do, In a knife fight, don't forget to stand tall
The way you knock down, a wall, Its just hammer, chisel, fall.

Enough talk, enough talk
The time has come today
Enough talk, enough talk
Don't let fantastic become mundane
Track Name: Paper Holland - Fake Song
This is only a fake song
None of what we say matters
These are alternative chords
None of what we play matters

It's gonna be great
It's gonna be great
A wall of sound filled with hate
It's gonna be great
It's gonna be great
Believe me

Here's the man who sold the world
With an embroidered catchphrase
Is this real life or
Is this reality TV?

It's gonna be huge
It's gonna be huge
We'll party with Vlad,
Drink with The Nuge
It's gonna be huge
It's gonna be huge
Believe me
It's gonna be great...

This is only a fake song
None of what we say matters
These are alternative chords
None of what we play matter

It's gonna be great...
Track Name: The Cell Phones - 53% (Overrun)
(Verse 1)
She said with a straight face
"Men can make decisions better than us"
This is a mother with a daughter
Saying "that's how it always was"

"Listened to father, never trusted mother
you know how we get worked up"
So who chose a man to represent them?
53% of all white women

Excuses are done, I've heard every one

(Chorus)
If not now then when?
Women!
Men have had their chance!
Stand up! Say "Enough!"
Cuz we can overrun

(Verse 2)
This resentment, competition
Who do you think egged that on?
If we got together, held eachother up
We'd prove them wrong

Men are only stronger when a woman 's made to feel she's weak
There's a shithead in the White House
Who want's to just grab you,
Bleed you and forget you

Excuses are done, I've heard every one

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Don't you think we've been here before?
Don't you think we're repeating ourselves?
Gender's not a 'thing' anymore,
And still I think we're repeating ourselves

Girls have lived and died under someone's thumb
And still think we're repeating ourselves
Repeating ourselves
Repeating ourselves
Repeating ourselves
Repeating ourselves

(Chorus)
Track Name: Detenzione - New American Dream
Are we living
in the time of fascism
Sit down, shut up
Swallow your pills
Follow only white lines

New American Dream
Sit back and lose
to the loudest voice

In the time of fascism
truth is out of style
Sit down, shut up
Swallow your pills
Follow only white lies

You can use your voice
You can be a target
Paint a target on your back
Track Name: The Mike Benign Compulsion - The League of Professional Celebrities
If you had a box you’d stand on top of it
‘Cause every box you see’s an almost-stage
Look at me, listen to me
Look at me, all

The League of Professional Celebrities is meeting down the hall

Take the floor again, you shameless superstar
You’ll let substance win some other day
You live to make yourself the center of it all
And you really don’t mind the sneers
(The people, some, all, fool and time)

The League of Professional Celebrities is meeting down the hall

And otherwise discerning people go too long before they see what I called out
Okay, I’m dark and I am petty and I’m cynical

The League of Professional Celebrities is meeting down the hall
And otherwise discerning people?
They don’t have a clue at all
Track Name: profess - Too Much Too Soon
How did you escape from the famous deaths of the year?
What you build doesn't apply to you.
The sinking ship you won't steer.

It's all too real now.
But I still hold out faith.
That we can always come back.
We won't live with your fear.

And I can't relate to you.
I feel this rage for you.

I wake up nervous.
You seem to stir when I sleep.
The days are getting stranger.
It's all too much to keep.

I have two kids now.
A wife who cheated death.
I fight for those who I care for.
How do you cope with loneliness?

And I can't relate to you.
I feel this rage for you.
And I lack all hope for you.
Track Name: Nonagon - Swing Goat
Our worst side is opened up to the public.
Seen despite every chance to hide.
Doubled down on ego-driven indifference.
Gone to ground. The thread is gone. The con is on.

One lie fits all.
This tide proves nothing.
This ride won't last long.

Oversight takes the teeth of the beast out.
Alive despite every fatal flaw.
Cover blown he'll spend our cash on the backlash.
Long disowned. With no regard the fall is hard.

Long wind. Short sight.
This tide proves nothing.
This ride can't last long.

It's all gone sideways on our watch.
We take the bait and turn the lights out.

With dead red eyes
Crane your neck as you follow
the steep red line
that charts complicit rise to shame.

(with apologies to Archers of Loaf)
Track Name: Haymarket Riot - The Catch-On
A great idea will not catch-on (diabolical and dastardly)

A great idea will not catch-on
Its too practical and its too functional
Unable to deprogram the untrainable, always justifiable

(Diabolical and dastardly, unbound by any conscience)
Track Name: WORK - Emolument Monument
It's so curiously dreadful
So dreadfully curious
How fast we fall
How normal it all becomes
Beggar's bliss - as we scamper after the command
How bland

To see those we once thought lions
Eat from your hand

Most people are monstrously good
We do every thing we thought we would

It's time
For some terrific
Problems
Just the best

This emolument monument
Wants you to fall fast
Wants you to tremble and cower
But hey Mister, here come's history
Here comes our finest hour

It's time
For some terrific
Problems
Just the best
Track Name: Mark Waldoch - Hollywoodland
This should be over now
This should be over now
This, this should be Hollywood

This should be shot on site
for your entertainment tonight
This, this should be Hollywood
Hollywood

This should be holy land
This should be holy land
This should be Hollywood
This should be,
Ha ha ha Hollywood
