Eventhough I couldn't agree less with the bands' retarded political views, this album still makes me a little bit proud to be Swedish.

Clearly this has been one of the most influential releases within our "scene" of the last 20 years.

I doubt its true but I would take that grueling flight to Australia to see it.

I thought the same thing... like literally I think it was a month or two ago

It was back in August, I think. According to iTunes, Refused was added to my library on 08/29/09.

"Liberation Frequency" was the theme song to my college radio show (oops, I just aged myself). And I had the chance to see them play an all ages show in my town on their only US tour (the one they broke up on) and I didn't go and I'm lame.

They started other bands, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Text, AC4, The Lost Patrol. But none were as awesome as Refused.

About every few years rumors of a reunion happen, and every few years we're reminded as to how it's not going to happen. Stop torturing us. Refused are fucking dead.

The Shape of Punk to Come = amazing, haha.
After listening to this album, I seen how many bands nowadays are influenced by these guys. I can tell that them taking punk and adding in some electronic/jazzyness influenced Underoath a bit on their Lost in the Sound of Seperation Album.
I can a little bit of Dennis in Daryl Palumbo a little bit, too. These guys are amazing, and inspired me the first time I heard them.
