The first thing to know, if you want to know about Propagandhi, is that they came here to rock. Right from the snarling opening riff of their seventh album, 'Victory Lap', that much is clear. For everything else that swirls around the band now, and for the last 31 years — the politics, the people and, lately, a gnawing sense of despair — the sheer volume of it all hasn’t changed.  With  Victory Lap, their collection of heady, pulverizing opuses hopes to inspire you to join in the battle. The band of radicals from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, got together in 1989. Screeching over fast, catchy melodic hardcore, the band gets their pro-gay, pro-feminist, anti-fascism message out.
