Guns Up! – “Won’t Change for Me”


The declaration “I won’t change for time” sums up the existence of Massachusetts based hardcore punk band Guns Up! not for its truthfulness, but because of the boldness in delivery, vocals balanced between desperation and devotion, an idealized balance in hardcore, a sometimes imagined struggle against an oppressive society to earn your keep while holding true to an often rotating set of values. Unfortunately the practical application of this struggle turns into insecure, testosterone fueled teens anxious to pound their chest and push their vaguely supported beliefs all under some false guilt-catchall of talking constantly about respect. A bunch of kids fighting about nothing, they spend so much time fighting they forget about the music. And that’s how scenes die.
