In part, the finished “Riot” goes, “Riots in your cities/Fucking riots in your schools/Riots in this country/We fucking riot just for you,” with the chorus repeating the title four times.
With little mixing and matching, every track falls into this category. The group's style is unabashedly formulaic and oafish, sapping nuance and reason from Punk while seizing every stereotype of the genre's rebellion and rage.
That being said, between the band's speedy sets and the dedicated packs of “Punx” that turn out in tow, the sheer enthusiasm of Casualties shows offer serious entertainment value and the strong possibility of leaving with an amusing anecdote. Even junk food can be good for the mental health now and then.
