It’s easy to dismiss a lot of the skate-punk generation for not showing much depth or profundity, and in most cases (NOFX, Vandals, blah blah blah) you’d be right. However, I think it’s about time that a case was made for some of the bands in the pop-punk world who have little to say about bodily functions, and more to say about the world we live in.

This week, Fat Wreck Chords has re-released five Lagwagon records, each including previously unreleased music and demo’s.

Check out the song ‘Know It All’ below – I don’t think you could find a more concise missive at the concept of college radio, hipsters, tastemakers and the lack of loyalty toward artists in mainstream and alternative media.

It’s also a jam.

And a teen anthem of mine.
