This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.
Presidential candidate and senator of Vermont, Bernie Sanders has been confirmed to appear in a documentary movie about the legendary New York Hardcore scene, entitled, "NYHC - A Revolution." The politician, activist and native of Brooklyn, New York, has apparently long had a connection with the music that helped shape the area and the state and claims that some of his political beliefs were shaped by attending shows from the likes of Agnostic Front and Gorilla Biscuits.
"It just all made perfect sense," Sanders says in an excerpt from the film, "if someone falls in the pit, you help them up. Not everyone was six foot and built, most people couldn't get up when they were knocked flat on the floor so they needed a helping hand. I think that's true of life in America today, not everyone can be king of the pit, but we all deserve the opportunity to mosh."
The senator also confirmed last night at his rally in the Bronx, that he will be using "Us Vs Them" by Sick of it All as his campaign song, citing the values the song promoted as central to his message of co-operation and unity among the working class.
"NYHC - A Revolution" will be the full length successor the sequel, "NYHC," which was filmed in 1995 and released four years later and will feature the same director, Frank Pavich, as well as new interviews with previously featured bands like Madball and the recently reactivated Crown of Thornz, plus bands who only appeared in bonus scenes on the DVD edition such as H20 and Sick of it All.
Past Fun Fun Fun Festivals that I covered featured one or two metal headliners on the black stage and one day dominated by punk. This year the third day of the festival included punk but rock in general was the main flavor of the day. Metal was not the style closing out the Black Stage, but headliner Murder City Devils played hard and heavy. There is something about this band that just fits with the festival, as the Seattle-based band made it’s third appearance. The garage rock group played powerful hooks and electric organ that sounded like The Doors making a soundtrack for a Hammer Horror film. I believe this was their first headline performance at FFF. The band was definitely up to it.
The lineup for this year's edition of the Black N Blue Bowl event has been revealed and boasts some of the biggest names in hardcore music. You can check out the list of bands below. The concert will take place on May 28th at Webster Hall in New York City.
