    I personally very fond of the fact that they've managed to make their most popular song focusing on such a tricky subject.

    I know Rise Against for it seems like forever now...I always thought that all the songs sound kinda similar to each other and didnt really care for them. Then I played this one on guitar hero three years ago and decided to give them a second chance. Since that day Im totally in love with them. :)
