The official Stick To Your Guns podcast! I know what you’re thinking, another podcast hosted by 5 straight, white males, but wait! It’s about OUR band, so it has to be good, right? Tour stories, hot takes, and shit talk. This is Against Them All.
023 The Right To Live In Peace
Uncle Ho, our song
is fire of pure love,
it's a dovecote dove,
olive from an olive grove.
It is the universal song
chain that will triumph,
the right to live in peace.

022 Backstreet’s Back
Oh my god we’re back again.
021 Hell Month
I've seen horrors... horrors that you've seen. George and Josh relive a traumatic tour that is fun to reflect back on in a sadistic kind of way.
020 Evolution of STYG Ideology
I am eating from the trash can of Ideology all the time. The band started in 2003 believe it or not folks (haha), and 17 years in, we have evolved in thought and mind on a variety of topics and issues, and I think it’s important to reflect on those sorts of things, because that’s how we learn. Not idealistically through divine revelations, but through experience and perspective that shape our understanding and ideology. Our material conditions produce our culture and ideas, that then in turn influence and reinforce aspects of our life in a cyclical fashion, that is, until there is a rupture. Some old f**k once said “It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.” So come on the journey with us.
019 Thrash and Burn
STYG was a part of the 2010 Thrash and Burn tour, which on first glance, might seem like an unremarkable tour, but it plays a very important role in STYG history, especially in relation to the Hope Division.
018 Never Concerned With What I Am Not
“If we have shortcomings, we are not afraid to have them pointed out and criticized, because we serve the people. Anyone, no matter who, may point out our shortcomings. If he is right, we will correct them. If what he proposes will benefit the people, we will act upon it.”
If you read this thank you. I love this podcast and STYG. I’m tired of feeling like an idiot when I listen though. Can you make an episode with recommended reading material or podcasts? I want to learn more so I can actually try to make a bigger difference in my own life. I’m tired of being a reflection of an apathetic world.
I’ll never forget when I first heard STYG. I was 13 years old and I was in the car with my brother and he played Such Pain. After that day I downloaded everything that they’ve done and now they are my favorite band. I actually met George and talked to him after they played and he was such a good guy. I’m a drummer too and he just said “just keep practicing kid” and it was awesome. It’s sick that they made this podcast and every single one I learn a little more how crazy Josh is😂
Let’s put it this way
I’ll put styg on my top 3 bands for bands listened to for my life. I’ve loved their stuff from a young age and as they describe in this show, It’s their passion and purpose behind the lyrics and melodies that make it so raw and rewarding. However, I have never seen eye to eye with their stances on socio-economics. At some points we agree, on most we don’t. This podcast is an amazing place for me to hear their apologies (reasons/arguments) for their stance which I know many are butt hurt by. So my recommendation is listen in. It’s a chance for you to understand why and also learn they aren’t so in your face (even if they are). They want you to understand their approach even if you refuse to acknowledge or even listen to it’s merit. For me, I have a theory I want to be convinced. So I’m going to continue listening as a subscriber. I’m a Christian. Jesus was a socialist. I’m excited to hear more and listen to the music/lyrics with a little more intention. K I’m done.
