about

Hailing from the frozen tundra's of upstate New York, Kulturkampf are a politically charged hardcore punk band. Originally formed in 2006, Kulturkampf spent their first few years building their sound, heavily influenced by crust, D-beat, thrash, and grind. During this time they also released two 7 inch records ("Too Cold To Smell The Dead" and "Existence E.P.") and were featured on a number of compilation CDs.

After a hiatus for a handful of years, Kulturkampf has reunited with a sound that is tighter and louder than ever. Playing anarcho-punk in the vein of Aus-Rotten and Doom, these New York State punks have finally put finishing touches on their long awaited debut full length, What Remains.

Track Name: The Score
the system was set up from the start
by rich white men with no heart
rigged so folks like us have no chance
only the privileged elite will advance

its time to fight back
yeah time to fight back

keep working hard but never get ahead
cant retire - you gotta work until your dead
we keep track of the score
while they keep pissing on the poor

its time to fight back
yeah time to fight back

its hard to make ends meet
when the systems got you beat
competition is shoved down your throat
its enough to make you choke

its time to fight back
yeah time to fight back
Track Name: Failed System
failed system
business and bribes bought and sold
too many people left out in the cold
scraping us off and left behind
don’t worry though, capitalism is doing fine

insider trades sank the economy
bankers made off with all our money

systems failed
struggling to get by yet we obey
forced to live the capitalists way
Track Name: Frozen
stop just knock it off
so sick I start to cough
exhausted but cant ever sleep
this pain just runs too goddamn deep

frozen frozen

I feel so numb and so frozen
do I regret this life that I’ve chosen
everything led down hill to my depression
it all started with a cold empty confession

frozen frozen

if you listen quietly, you’ll hear me moan
extremely frustrated and so alone
so sad that I start to cry
I hate my life I want to die

frozen frozen
Track Name: Blown to Bits
marching, running, and storming up hills
trapped in this war, your only choice is to kill
system has you in submission lined up like sheep
fighting their battles to be slaughtered like meat

AAAHHHHhhh BLOWN TO BITS
AARRGGHH BLOWN TO BITS

look all around your comrades are dead
hear a big explosion, off goes your head
laying dead in a ditch, the death toll is high
bodies pile up, hell of a way to die

AAAHHHHhhh BLOWN TO BITS
AARRGGHH BLOWN TO BITS
Track Name: Diagnosed
been diagnosed with problems
but the truth this is far from
yet this man we believe
because he’s got a wall of degrees
aaahhhhhhhhh hey!

the doc says he can fix me
just needs a sample of my pee
the answer, more pills
fun dirty cheap thrills
yaaahhaaarrrg hey!

the meds make me feel funny
my mind is kinda fuzzy
my memory is in a haze
don’t remember much, just been in a daze
aaarrrgghhhaa hey!
Track Name: Reagan Piss
secret FBI informant
spokesman for general electric
conservatives fell in love
made his buddies super rich

trickle down trickle down trickle down
reagan piss
trickle down trickle down trickle down
reagan piss

actor president puppet
free market capitalist
deregulated the economy
said the wealth will trickle down

trickle down trickle down trickle down
reagan piss
trickle down trickle down trickle down
reagan piss

was against labor unions
then freezed the minimum wage
destroyed the middle class
all for short term profits

trickle down trickle down trickle down
reagan piss
trickle down trickle down trickle down
reagan piss
Track Name: Broken
dead inside and I don’t fit in
everything I do feels like a sin
don’t feel like me/everything is wrong
I'm trying really hard to be strong

broken broken broken broken

why cant I do anything right
conversations always end in fight
I feel broken and I don’t understand
nothing ever works out as I planned

broken broken broken broken

everything is falling apart
I don’t even know where to start
feel sucked down and trapped in a pit
tired of living, its time to quit

broken broken broken broken
Track Name: Shoved Down Your Throat
push, shove, fight, and compete
become all to familiar with the taste of defeat
its a vicious cycle just to make ends meet
you get no sympathy from the powerful elite
just doing what you know is right
everyday is another struggle to fight

shoved down your throat
is the pointless products that they push
shoved down your throat
is the useless shit you don’t need and cant afford
shoved down your throat
is this dog eat dog fucking system

big business rules with you under their thumb
they keep you too busy to notice, you’ve become complacent and numb
trying to make an honest living, your called blue collar
bustin' your back 40+ hours a week to make a dollar
so very sick of being deprived
the wealthy and the working class collide

shoved down your throat
is the pointless products that they push
shoved down your throat
is the useless shit you don’t need and cant afford
shoved down your throat
is this dog eat dog fucking system
Track Name: Middle Class, Working Class, No Class
Scott Walker demonized unions in Wisconsin
class war
apparently fair working rights is some sort of sin
class war
then it became open season on hard working citizens
class war
a witch hunt on teachers with unjust criticism
class war

the rich have started a class war - attack attack
greedy bastards take more and more - attack attack

instead of taxing rich assholes, lets cut public funding
class war
after all we don’t care about those who are struggling
class war
so lets put the burden on the backs of the working class
class war
so fat cats can just get richer while sitting on their ass
class war

the rich have started a class war - attack attack
greedy bastards take more and more - attack attack

republicans are the servant henchmen to the oligarchy
class war
absolute control is the goal of this powerful hierarchy
class war
collective bargaining was a right the workers had
class war
corrupt people get involved and the deal goes bad
class war

the rich have started a class war - attack attack
greedy bastards take more and more - attack attack
Track Name: What's the Point?
whats the point – I don’t care
whats the point – life’s not fair
whats the point – I don’t care

so sick and tired, I just don’t give a shit
I used to get annoyed and have a fit
but now I really just don’t care
try to get my attention and all you’ll get is this blank stare
my brain hurts, my mind is over loaded
too much bullshit makes society look dead and bloated

whats the point – I don’t care
whats the point – life’s not fair
whats the point – I don’t care

doesn’t matter, its all the same
nothing changes life is pretty lame
no money to take care of my health
no free time to keep to myself
trapped at work and I’m trapped at school
whats the point I'm just a tool

whats the point – I don’t care
whats the point – life’s not fair
whats the point – I don’t care

I couldn’t relate and I used to be torn
now I don’t care I'm just so bored
whats the point of going on when life seems like a chore
I got everybody fooled but I cant fool myself no more
all these thoughts in my head
wonder if I'd be better off dead
Track Name: Consume
buy it all, fall in debt, broke ass poor
buy it all, fall in debt, broke ass poor
consume
buy it all, fall in debt, broke ass poor
buy it all, fall in debt, broke ass poor
consume
fall in line OBEY
Track Name: Fear Power Control
step 1 – insert fear

fear is what feeds the wild frenzy
we pump a shit ton in your TV
all this scary shit for you to see
and in the newspapers its just the same
all these problems in the world, who’s to blame?
Too much violence and disease what a shame

fear power control
fear power control
fear power control

step 2 – gain power

now that your scared, you come to us for protection
you flee your freedoms like a nasty infection
voluntarily handing them over to pass our inspection
now we keep you in line like sheep with no back bone
each one so obedient like a carbon copy clone
so we keep you dumbed down so our cover's not blown

fear power control
fear power control
fear power control

step 3 – absolute control

now that we have you eating from our right hand
you don’t dare step out of line for fear of getting canned
everything worked out just as we planned
you stupid suckers your ignorance is bliss
taking any scraps you can get, your freedom you wont miss
we got you bent over backwards, you take the fucking piss

fear power control
fear power control
fear power control
