Ska-Punk band, Warehouse One, of San Pedro, California tweeted a track from their new album this week called “Victimless Crime Spree.” The song calls attention to the growing police state and celebrates the human desire for freedom.
Judging from the lyrics, it seems like these guys have a good grasp of freedom and of what is taking place in the world.
As we have pointed out in other recent articles, hip-hop is finally beginning to return to its anti-authoritarian roots with songs about police brutality and government corruption, and now it seems that punk rock may be going through a similar transformation.
Check out the song below:

Band Member, Jack S, tells the Free Thought Project that the title of the song was taken from a movie with a similar name, “Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree,” a documentary which follows activist Derrick J Freeman as he engages in bold and peaceful civil disobedience.
