Punk rock’s genius — its legacy — lies in its obnoxious, aggressive pushback against the status quo.
It’s hard to think of an environment where punk’s astringency is more vital than the cynical, militaristic Russia of Vladimir Putin.
If you’ve ever gotten goosebumps listening to Black Flag, Operation Ivy, Crass, or the Minutemen, please take a minute to add your name to this petition.
“Those of us who stand out against the status quo / Do so against all odds / We cling so closely together / Because we have little other than ourselves.”
Putin is an authoritarian thug; support Pussy Riot!
