The risk you run with any NOFX album is that it's almost guaranteed to be 50% garbage, but I have fond memories of Punk in Drublic (disclaimer: I haven't listened to it in over 1/2 a decade, at least). I know you already listened to at least a few song off So Long...
Other bands, you've got the well known guys like Anti-Flag (they've always been catchy as fuck, but American Fall has some next-level ear worms), Bad Religion (Generator through Stranger Than Fiction are probably their strongest albums), Pennywise I know you've listened to, Strung Out has some good stuff (An American Paradox was a favourite of younger Geoff, and revisiting it now, it's still a fun album).

If we were talking about the whole population I might disagree, but if there had been a "full blown uprising" the military could have put it down rather quickly. The iconic picture would never have happened as the
|I loved season 19 of South Park. It ended about as well as I could have hoped.|
|For those wondering: no, the overall theme of this season was /not/ that|
|fighting for social justice is wrong. On the contrary, it affirmed that seeking|
|to improve society is a laudable goal. Where it drew a line was where it was|
|reasonable; the point at which one's belief in their own righteousness has|
|allowed them to overlook their own faults and poor behaviour.|
|IMHO, what South Park primarily attempted to convey is that something to be|
