Remember when everyone claimed to have a punk sensibility which they were bringing to their music? Filthy Friends certainly do. And who are Filthy Friends? Well Sleater-Kinney co-founder Corin Tucker, R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck and indie stalwarts Scott McCaughey and Kurt Bloch. This song is Tucker’s scathing attack on complacency and the state of the world: “I had this long poem growing in my brain,” she says. “It turned into a sort of manifesto about the kind of place we are at as a country but also as a region. Just taking stock of where we’re at and feeling like I can’t believe we let things get this bad.”
