Street Dogs: Blue Collar Punk for American Jobs
Today we’re focusing on Boston’s Street Dogs, a blue-collar punk rock band that has spent the last ten years making hard-hitting punk that stands up for those who have been left behind by our economy.
In 2006, at a time of record Wall Street bonuses, their album, Fading American Dream, spoke to the problems that many American families were facing. The title track, Common People, and Katie Bar the Door, all take an unvarnished look at the realities of factory closings, rising prices, and a government that is unwilling to step in and protect American jobs.
Their music combines blistering punk rock with an unwavering social conscience. Check them out if they’re in your city!
