The Vault: Pennywise - 'Fuck Authority'

Time for another edition of a brand new feature. While Track Of The Day brings you new music and Rewind takes you back 20 years, The Vault deals in amazing songs from random points in musical history. RW/FF will keep these posts short and sweet, with only a small bit of basic info. All you have to do is press 'play' and enjoy. 

Here's a track that I used to blast at top volume and shut to at the top of my lungs during my "punk phase" during 2003-2009. The raging 'Fuck Authority' was taken from American punk combo Pennywise's 2001 album 'Land Of The Free?'. A review on Allmusic opined that "Pennywise themselves are calling Land of the Free? 'a wake-up call,' aimed at the slumbering masses of America — an attempt to shake people out of their lethargy, and prod them into thinking about the world." Protest music at its very best.
