Against Me! recently spoke to The Nation about the various things that have plagued the band which each successive step since the band's first album.

Besides addressing frontman Tom Gabel's recent arrest:
The day of the Tallahassee thing, we were playing at this place The Beta Bar, and this coffee shop next door was having a protest show against ours. I mean... go protest the fucking war!"

The story cites a recent The L Magazine editorial which writes that "when you say the same things over and over again, as loudly as [Gabel] did, into a microphone no less, to countless impressionable teenagers, you've effectively lost your right to just decide one day that you didn't mean any of it."
