The revolution will not be televised. Nor will it be shitty rap/rock on Interscope Records. In true white boy fashion, the rap style is ripped straight from that dude from P.O.D. or Papa Roach, only instead of breaking into nü-metal shitty chorus', they break into catchy, shitty pseudo-punk akin to Hoobastank or Lostprophets. The left banner on Punknews.org used to be an ad for their "controversial new video." Homeboys got political for one video and bought ad space on Punknews. Too bad their shitty, formulaic sound doesn't belong here.

When will A&R reps learn about what people really want? We don't want another rap/rock band. We especially don't want them to have a "punk" edge. Just because this type of shit is being played all over the radio doesn't mean that it's GOOD.

Anyway, I better talk about the CD more or you'll all get pissed and whine. There are twelve songs, and fifty total minutes of shit-tastic ball suckage packed into this CD. Boring, generic song titles include: "Thank You (wasn't this an Alanis Morrisette song?)," "New York, NY (Andrew W.K. already did the only metal song about NYC that will ever matter)," and "Wicked Games (not to be confused with Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game")." Way to be original, you fucking hacks.

The back of the CD has a big FBI anti-piracy warning on it. As if anyone would ever want to pirate this. But, if you're curious, and want the CD for free please *do'n'* instant message me at: carringtonxbear, because I definitely *won't* send you the entire album in mp3 format. This is not worth anyone's money.

HHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA classic review! it's a keeper unlike the cd.

fritobandito (May 10, 2005)

I recently heard of/saw these guys.

I thought they were one of the most energetic, original bands I've ever seen. I'm not a big hiphop fan (pretty much limited to Sage Francis, Atmosphere, Immortal Technique, and Eminem, really), but this really was jivin' with me for some reason.

This is not one of my favorite albums, but it's definitely a good occasional listen, and I do enjoy it.

This is not your typical Limp Bizkit rap-rock, it's quite a bit more intense (not to mention relevant both artistically and socially) than that.

this is a great CD, sucks that retarded punkers that were dropped on their head straight from the womb have to review bands like this.

rock on CF.

Anonymous (October 1, 2004)

What kind of dumbass reviews the song titles? This record metastasizes the last twenty five years of hard rock as well as any. Melodies, riffs, power chords and hooks. Perfect ... no. But a bunch of the tracks are way damn strong (World Keeps Spinning, Shellshocked, New York NY, Memories in F Minor). Andrew WK is a useless twat. Jam your skateboard up your ass and suck my hairy rballs, you fucking poser!! Solid recording.

The point I was trying to make about them being formed before other bands was the fact you tried to make them look like they were posers or just copying other band (you clearly stated this in your article) "In true white boy fashion, the rap style is ripped straight from that dude from P.O.D. or Papa Roach". And what the hell does "white boy fashion" mean?

You just stepped in fire, now wait to get burned:

"So before you go flaming on about how much you hate rap..."
-You're saying this to the guy who gave Wu-Tang a 10 on Punknews.org.

"listen to the CD and look into the band a little bit, these guys have real talent."
-No they don't. See the El Jefe review for my opinion on hip-hop.

"They were formed FAR before there was any rap-rock group that you see in the spottlight today."
-Being first doesn't mean that they're good. That's like saying, "Yeah, I was the FIRST guy to ever shit on his own chest, then lick it off."

"And please dont fill it with cussing and garbage."

but they barely even sound like 3/11 if you actually listen to their CD's. - and this goes to that idiots that was making fun of their song "scottsdale". As you probly dont know, scottsdale is a area in arizona. It is on the richer side of town. If you give the song a chance and listen to the lyrics, hes basically ranting about how much he hates people that are a part of that trend to wear your pants low, and talk like a moron I.E-"home skillet". Their main problem is breaking that barrier between their music and that stupid culture.

FeatheredMullet (August 9, 2004)

at least this sounds better than their shit from 10 years ago, Scottsdale Brat is a song you all need to listen to for a good laugh - I can't believe they were signed back then. Maybe if I smoked some phat chronic and sipped a 40 of OE while pouring out some for my homieZ I could try to get into it if I wore some marshmellow pants and a backwards hat and put my hand on my cock all the time - that shit could be dope if you fuckin' go cold pimpin' on tha shizzle, ma fizzle

I'd rather be slowly killed than listen to anymore songs off of this album (I've heard Time and Time Again). This review captured Chronic Future's shitty music perfectly.

ShamrocknRoll (August 7, 2004)

score is for the review

terrible band

Anonymous (August 6, 2004)

The band DOOM use a similar font to that of the game. They're also the perfect soundtrack to wandering around a semi-3D landscape mutilating monsters and zombies.

No offense to Linkin Park either.

Liked it. Nice bass line on "Time and Time Again". This deserves a fair review, instead of an anti-Linkin Park flamefest. What kind of review was that?

To the genital wart licking ass who posted above me before accusing me of being on the Chronic Future street team I must say this. One day the world will end and people like you will be sodomoized by Billy Ray Cyrus in the comfort of your own home. Then Billy Joel will come barrelling through the wall and thus ending your miserable existence.

P.S. Warped Tour in about 9 hours.

In response to BSD-

At least Warped used to be punk, and TBS sucks the balls but they hit the emo radar more than these jokers.

Really, I'm just trying to start shit. It's been boring around here without us at each other's throats.

I encourage everyone to go to chronic future's site and read their bio. no matter who wrote it, they are pretty full of themselves to let that be their official bio...it's quite a read.

aren't these the guys with that groundbreaking video that wasn't so groundbreaking and was more along the lines of tear inducing?

also super surprised by the complete lack of bickering as to how much this album sucks.

I dunno, but I saw this band on the Moneen/Northstar tour and i had a lot of fun during their set. Even though I knew it was the cheeziest shit in the world, I still liked their set a lot and I kinda wanted to get this. I'm thinking otherwise now, because although a fun cheezy live band, that would translate to shit on record..

holy shit.. all of the comments underneath me have reviewed this album with the lowest rating except for the 2 that gave a rating for something else... a cohesive rating score.. i think thats a first on punknews... or at least the first i've seen

Anonymous (August 4, 2004)

"This band was also on a northstar / moneen tour not too long ago."

I saw that tour. Every one of their songs sounds the same. pop-punk choruses and rap/ska (upstroke guitar) verses. lame.

i have to admit, i do own their last album from a long time ago. but i think i can be forgiven since i am a 311 fan.

however, i guess most wont forgive me for being a 311 fan.

in any case, this album sucks

"A couple weeks ago I went to see The Bled and this band opened. They were exactly as they are described here but people were yelling shit at them and heckling them. Now, I don't think any small touring band deserves this, they may not deserve my money, my time, or my attention but they also don't deserve to be yelled at while they're making shit for money and driving all day in a van."

This band was also on a northstar / moneen tour not too long ago. The one who needs to be yelled at is their booking guy / manager. they need to realize that we tend to have an adverse reaction to that genre of music.

This album had better be as controversial as their new video "Time and Time Again"!

Jesse (August 3, 2004)

I can't tell, I just read the lyric sheet and it's all nonsense because they couldn't make up coherent rhymes.

stevejonestherealbones (August 3, 2004)

was that song even political? i mean, it dealt with war iguess, but did it even take a stand on the war one way or the other? i dont remember the lyrics, but judging from the video, it didnt really go against the war, and it wasnt really for the war either. its like, boy doesnt want to go, but has too. while there, the people remind boy of his friends. boy gets hurt. boy gets purple heaRT, family is proud, boy has sex and everyone is happy
