There is an overabundance of bands in this world who have no sense of creativity, passion, or sincerity, and are nothing more than pale imitations of their influences, doing it for their own personal glory. Then there is Civil Disobedience. While the rest of the world was worshiping Nirvana and lapping up the bland vomit that was the alternative and grunge music scenes in the 1990's, Civil Disobedience uncompromisingly forged their own path and took no prisoners. Their shows were celebrations of the true rebellious spirit of punk rock as they pummeled the crowd with their unyielding energy and made everyone want to join in and sing along with their anarchistic anthems. Every time that I saw them play it reminded me why I got into punk and why I love it. Hopefully this collection of their songs will do the same for
you as well.

The Punk rock band Civil Disobedience, founded in 1989 in Saginaw Michigan, had a profound impact on the Hardcore / Punk Scene of the 1990's. Many fans refer to the band simply as “Civil D” for short. Referenced in the opening lines of a 2010 Rolling Stone interview with Laura Jane Grace of the band Against Me as a lifetime favorite and inspiration, often cited by several generations of rockers as a highly essential and influential band, it seems their music has only grown in popularity and impact. Their unique approach transcends genre with timeless musician ship, thought provoking visual lyricism and accompanying artwork that's equally compelling. If you like hard driving tunes that send chills up your spine and raging vocal delivery with lyrics to match…then this band is for you! Don’t miss out! These guys are classic. This is Punk Rock and beyond at it’s finest!
