I hate that Bloody Beetroots remix so much it makes my teeth hurt. I am not opposed to a remix ( I like some of the others ) but messing with lyrics in such a way that it tears the soul and meaning out the original is heresy !
hells yes. im cooler than most because i saw them in 1997 in a vfw hall in nj and i got mic like a mo fo. they were fucking energetic and their pre song banter was hilarious. hope their power works in the big stage scene at coachella with the west coast woosie pussies.

Been listening to Refused (for the first time ever) these last few days. I'll be damned if the drumming isn't the tightest I've ever heard on a punk/hardcore record. Who the hell is this guy?
If you are new to Refused I hope you are as blown away with the whole package as I was when I discovered them. Yes David is a freakishly tight drummer ( my personal favorite examples of his dexterity are The Deadly Rhythm & the build up at the intro to Rather Be Dead. ) For me it so rare to come across a band like this that ticks all my boxes - musically groundbreaking with out regard to genre, lyrics that are meaningful & thought provoking all wrapped in an ethos that I respect & appreciate. For me they come as close to satisfying what I look for in a band as anyone since Fugazi.
When I think actually getting to witness them live I get all tingly and shit...
