PROTAGONIST: Hope and Rage: CD

NOTE TO ALL WOULD-BE “HARDCORE PUNK” BANDS: If you’re writing songs that are longer than two minutes, you’re doin’ something wrong. Shitcan the set and start over. And, for the love of Pete, don’t release a disc chock full of songs that clear four-plus minutes. It’s almost as offensive as seein’ your gramma in an “Assmaster” video.
