    You're the new revolution
    The angst filled adolescent
    You fit the stereotype well.

    Basically everyone in high school.

      the meaning of Six ways from Sunday means: (idiomatic, colloquial) thoroughly, completely, in every way imaginable. Look up the definitions of each and you might get the answer, i got somewhat one.

      Don't feel guilty about your personality. If you don't like it, you can feel free to change it, but whether you do or not, hating yourself is just bad for you.

    The album came out in my birth year, I think it was their first album if I am not mistaken, right? "The Sufferer and the Witness" was the first album I heard by RA, instanly became a fan.
    There's barely any band, especially in the Hardcore/Punk scene that could top Rise Against, not only because of their amazing style but also because their songs mostly have a deeper point, something to think about. About "Audience of One" I first thought that it was a love song, then I realised it's about war actually, which was then proven by the music video.
    I think Rise Against is one of the most unique bands I've ever seen, and I'll defenitely visit their next concert here in Germany, if there's going to be one anytime soo,

      Wyatt Gnar No songs that were on RPM were recorded in 1999. All of the songs (Except one, which was Join the Ranks, which was on the 2005 reissue along with Gethsemane after the EP was a huge flop), were on Rise Against’s The Unraveling (Reception Fades, Two (401 Kill), The Art of Losing)

      too be fair, if you want an exact incarnation of Rise Against, start with 88 Fingers Louie, there wouldn't be a Rise Against if 88 Fingers Louie never happened.

      +Ramon That's what I thought too (I can't even recall ever defining it as a love song. Oh well, one year's hell of a time), I actually still believe that that interpretation would fit the song better, but the official music video strongly suggests it being a song about war.
      Then again, music videos don't always neccessarily represent the actual meaning of the lyrics and I don't think the band ever gave an official statement. Who knows?

      Replying to a 1 year old comment but oh well.
      Audience of one is about war? I thought it was about growing older and becoming a different person, drifting apart from friends and being regretful.

    You're claiming to be something different
    So wanting to believe
    That you're better than the rest
    To make up for your self-esteem
    You talk to hear your own voice and
    You've left me no choice but to choose
    I miss the person that you were
    But I don't miss you!
    My favorite song of them. I'll never be tired of these kind of songs. Simply amazing!

    I'm glad that I discovered this song back when I was 15. It's really a message that a lot of misfit teenagers need, its so easy for your adolescent angst to transmute into this close mindedness and unwarranted sense of self importance. Its a necessary 'rude awakening' from the delusions that our minds create.

    I absolutely love this song, some lines are unrelated to me but others make me want to make a difference. For instance "You'll never know what need is". Makes me want to do be so much of a better person, and personally go anywhere to help people who know true need.

    @artanay My work consists of spending 15-20 minutes with poor editing in Movie Maker, it's ridiculous that I'm getting any recognition to begin with. I don't want to be worshiped over these videos, especially not if it makes people say irrational things, like you did to @mike007RA, who asked a valid question.

    Rise Against is a great band. They have literally changed my life majorly and made me a better person, in my opinion. All the people my age are worried about drama with relationships and popularity but they're missing the big picture. Rise Against has shown me that there are bigger things than popularity or being cool and i cant thank them enough for saving me from being ignorant and blind to society.

    well who said the title of a song has to match the lyrics? Rise Against has done that for the most part but it's never been said that they had to, am I right? Not putting anyone down, Im js is all.
