Where there is Agnostic Front there will be boneheads

          So for years going back to the beginning of time it seems, anytime Agnostic Front (a old NY hardcore skinhead band) would play boneheads would show up. This never makes any sense, now its true some of their old songs back in the day were pretty right wing and they were the typical American hardcore band. But most of their songs now a days are just about being hardcore and the lifestyle, which has gotten to be a little old amongst most people but they still have a huge following, even with Spanish background musicians in the band and close ties with groups like Madball whose lead singer is Cuban.
          Now that being said for years we would make sure to attend Agnostic Front shows, and any other shows we thought might attract them, to make sure our scene would continue to be Nazi Free.
          To give a little bit of a back story for the last couple of years whenever we would show up to AF shows in Orlando a couple bonheads would show up, in fact a couple years ago a small group of them showed up to backbooth and started their white power stuff and was shut up real quick probably not realising there was about a dozen anti racist skinheads just on the other side of the bar watching them.
          This year was a little different where the show was going to stop in Cocoa instead of Orlando. Now reports have shows that the show in Jacksonville was riddled with Nazis, but no surprise there. But in Cocoa there was no way any were going to show up. But CFLAFA were there in full force to make sure.
         Only one instance of somebody seig heiling in the pit happened, he was in the pit got leveled down and was told that if he kept it up he would get hurt. he wasn't a bonehead but what was weird was he was a metal head long hair and all, said he came down from Jacksonville and was following them on their tour. Unsure what this guys intentions were, but he laid off the pit and took a step back for the rest of the evening. All in all I will say that it's good to know after all the years previous groups like CPPR and Colorblind put in for years and now us to keep our shows Nazi Free is positive step and working well.
        All in all the show went great and was a lot of fun, because a show with no Nazis is always a great show.

  1. Communist anarchist and lover of Cro-Mags deeper message thinks the Agnostic Front band must be defended against racist fucks while also taking the time to realize the inherent white (I am white skinhead) aggrieved entitlement that is one of the anti system constructs here. Jah bless!!!!

  2. AF were always racists. They just toned it down lately.

  3. Azazel Acheron, they were always ANTI-racist, you mean.
    This song was included on their FIRST album:

    "A scene all divided, with no unity, we gotta stick together, and fight for what we believe.

    There won't be a second chance, we've got to have it soon, got to stick together and fight 'em all now.
    There won't be a second chance, we've got to have it soon, got to stick together and fight 'em all now.

    Our friends are more important. We gotta stick together. supporting one another. united and strong!

    There won't be a second chance, we've got to have it soon, got to stick together and fight 'em all now.
    There won't be a second chance, we've got to have it soon, got to stick together and fight 'em all now.

    No, no one.

    Our friends are more important. We gotta stick together. Supporting one another.

    United, Strong! United, Strong! United, Strong! Blacks & Whites! United, Strong! Punks & Skins! United, Strong! For everyone!

  5. This song is on their first album as well:

    "Fascist Attitudes"
    Why should you go around bashing one another
    If they look or think different, why let it bother
    Everyones got their own style, their own thoughts
    Don't let it bother you, don't let it get caught

    Your fascist attitudes - we need the least
    With a scene that's fighting for unity & peace
    Don't need more anger; no more danger
    stop now before it's too late

    Learning how to respect each other is a must
    So why start a war of anger & danger among us
    It's time to grow out of your nazi hypocrism
    When you really don't want part of a fucked up system

    Your fascist attitudes - we need the least
    With a scene that's fighting for unity & peace
    Don't need more anger; no more danger
    stop now before it's too late

    Why should you go around bashing one another
    If they look or think different, why let it bother
    Everyones got their own style, their own thoughts
    Don't let it bother you, don't let it get caught

    Remember we're minorities and everyone of us counts,
    If we bring intimacy, then we're endowed.

    They've been anti-fascist and anti-racist since the
    very beginning.
