About This Song


When bands like Metallica and Anthrax cover you, and the originals still sound as good if not better, you know that band was something special. I actually thought Protest and Survive was an Anthrax song when I first heard it. This track is punchy and minimalistic but powerful nonetheless. Like that one match ready to be thrown …

Via Wikipedia:

The album is characterized by a minimalistic approach of music and lyrics, a heavy, distorted, and grinding guitar-driven sound and raw, shouted vocals similar to a political speech, with lyrics on anarchist and pacifist themes. some critcs at the time dismissed this album as “unmusical”, in retrospect, it is viewed both a classic of the era and the peak of Discharge’s career. AllMusic calls the band’s sound a “high-speed noise overload” characterized by “ferocious noise blasts” .

The album is considered highly important in the evolution of extreme forms of metal and punk music, paving the way for genres such as thrash metal, black metal, crust punk and grindcore.

The savage mutilation of the human race is set on course.
Protest and survive, protest and survive.

It’s up to us to change that course.
Protest and survive, protest and survive.
