about

When you grow up native in an all-white, Jewish neighborhood, you lose any and all connection to your culture and heritage. Despite my parents’ efforts, I hated the color of my skin and just wanted to fit in. Punk rock gave me a sense of worth and identity. It was political and passionate

lyrics

I can't even count how many times punk rock saved my life.

Sometimes I love it for the community spirit and other times I loathe it for the selfishness and spite.

It was a tribe when I grew up without a culture to call my own, an outlet for much-needed identity and rebellion.

A soundtrack to my political angst and anger, the fastest of blast beats to dance to.

Friends and family we all came to be, where I felt first embraced by equality.

The music I grew up with had such a profound impact on my life, knowing that people felt the same insecurities and everyday strife.

The frustration of living in a genocidal nation, my disconnection from the native community, suburban segregation.

All the times I am grateful of not going through the poverty of the inner city.

Glad punk rock made me feel connected to the struggle, a base for unity.

Greatest moment I have ever experience was when Fugazi dedicated ‘Waiting Room’to the memory of Jai.

Everything stopped, exploded, joy and sadness, I was home.
