Bernie Sanders To Appear In New York Hardcore Documentary

Presidential candidate and senator of Vermont, Bernie Sanders has been confirmed to appear in a documentary movie about the legendary New York Hardcore scene, entitled, “NYHC – A Revolution.” The politician, activist and native of Brooklyn, New York, has apparently long had a connection with the music that helped shape the area and the state and claims that some of his political beliefs were shaped by attending shows from the likes of Agnostic Front and Gorilla Biscuits.

“It just all made perfect sense,” Sanders says in an excerpt from the film, “if someone falls in the pit, you help them up. Not everyone was six foot and built, most people couldn’t get up when they were knocked flat on the floor so they needed a helping hand. I think that’s true of life in America today, not everyone can be king of the pit, but we all deserve the opportunity to mosh.”

The senator also confirmed last night at his rally in the Bronx, that he will be using “Us Vs Them” by Sick of it All as his campaign song, citing the values the song promoted as central to his message of co-operation and unity among the working class.

“NYHC – A Revolution” will be the full length successor the sequel, “NYHC,” which was filmed in 1995 and released four years later and will feature the same director, Frank Pavich, as well as new interviews with previously featured bands like Madball and the recently reactivated Crown of Thornz, plus bands who only appeared in bonus scenes on the DVD edition such as H20 and Sick of it All.

Trump / Clinton Twitter War Erupts Over Phil Anselmo’s Dimebash Remarks

It’s the Nazi salute heard round the world that just won’t go away. We thought news of Phil Anselmo’s yell of “white power” at Dimebash was finally over, but that all changed this morning when some dedicated Trump followers tweeted about the incident months after the fact.

Known for inflammatory tweets about other candidate’s wives and making headlines by retweeting less-than-savory sources, it shouldn’t come as much surprise that the GOP presidential front runner jumped on the opportunity to show his support for the 1st Amendment.

Things took an ugly turn when Hillary Clinton got involved, tweeting back a link to our own op/ed about the situation.

Not learning from poor Megyn Kelly, the Democratic frontrunner for the presidential nod probably should have seen this response coming…

The situation further deteriorated from there, with tweets we don’t feel comfortable sharing on a family-friendly website like Metalunderground.com. You can head directly to the Trump Twitter page for more, if you dare.

In related news, Democratic contender Bernie Sanders will also soon be appearing in a documentary all about New York Hardcore.
