From Warped Tour back in 08 to remembering an old friend Rise Against has been a band I have followed off and on for some time. With their new project “EndGame” and partnership with another worthy activism partner It Gets Better Project, these rockers continue to bring a message that can’t be ingored in the world we live in today. Taking a stand with the oppressed or condemning a war that is still being fought front man Tim and the rest of the guys in Rise Against continue their punk attitude toward government and the corruption that has befell our nation this last decade. Six studio albums in I see punk rock scene still going strong in the world of mainstream overflow into the minds of society.

She has show women the power of being strong and standing up for themselves. Her album ‘4’ which just dropped on Tuesday is well worth a listen A way to keep moving on after a relationship that didn’t work or that inner struggle of taking it to the next level. Lots of things guys don’t take into considerations because we think our “swagger” will take care of it for us. Respect and confidence is what women really look for and there is a culture out there that is feeding us lies about money, cars, and swagger are the way to get them. King B is a women who is caught up in that world but doesn’t let it rule her like so many of the artist today have. Props to Beyonce and her passion to empower women and young girls all around the world to stand up and be strong. Men we could all take notes and then maybe we will be drippin “swagoo.” Click Here to stream ‘4‘ so you can get a feel for her new album. The album is a few scrolls down the page.
