Even though the Gainesville, Florida based nu-punk rock act Against Me! first started making music in 1997, it wasn't until 2007 that the band really rose to prominence. The band might receive a good amount of flack for sounding a bit too much like its pop punk peers, but the band's no-nonsense instrumental assault proves that the band is more than just a bunch of teenage whiners.
