Reagan Youth – Volume 2 – Cassette

Reagan Youth – Volume 2 is the second studio album by the American punk rock band Reagan Youth. Originally recorded in 1984, the album was not officially released until 1990 due to various issues and delays.

Reagan Youth was an American hardcore punk band started by singer Dave Rubinstein (Dave Insurgent) and his friend and guitarist Paul Bakija in Queens in early 1980.

They have been labeled peace punk as well as hardcore. Their name is a word play on Hitler Youth. An important group in the New York/New Jersey hardcore scene, they performed very regularly at CBGB and toured the U.S. extensively, often with other early punk bands such as the Dead Kennedys, Bad Brains and The Misfits.

“Volume 2” captures the raw and rebellious spirit of Reagan Youth, showcasing their energetic punk sound and politically charged lyrics. The album features fast-paced, aggressive guitar riffs, pounding drums, and intense vocals. The band’s lyrics often address social and political issues, offering a critique of the Reagan administration and societal norms.

Songs like “Jesus Was a Communist,” “Heavy Metal Shuffle,” and “What Will the Neighbors Think?” exemplify the band’s punk ethos and confrontational attitude. The music is characterized by its aggressive energy, catchy hooks, and a sense of urgency.

Despite facing challenges and lineup changes throughout their career, Reagan Youth left a significant impact on the punk rock scene. Their songs continue to resonate with listeners who appreciate the band’s blend of punk music and political commentary. The Beastie Boys and Rancid, among other significant successful punk rock and alternative rock groups, have cited Reagan Youth as an influence.

Reagan Youth – Volume 2 serves as a testament to the band’s rebellious spirit and commitment to addressing social and political issues through their music. It is a raw and unapologetic punk rock record that captures the essence of Reagan Youth’s sound and ideology.

For fans of hardcore punk and politically charged music, Reagan Youth – Volume 2 offers an authentic and engaging listening experience. It remains an important part of the band’s discography and a notable contribution to the punk rock genre.
