It’s like a very ambitious vintage teenage submission.

As a now old guy who saw No Trend then and remembers singer Jeff stopping by my college radio station, not sure I buy this theory ( and I kinda liked No Trend) --

Instead, all of those old punk songs from the ’80s about corporate control, ecological ruin, government malfeasance and the stupid arrogance of American exceptionalism began to sound like prophecies come true. The youthful indignation at the heart of the music was still pumping as hot as ever, but now it sounded wise, too. Maybe hardcore wasn’t a reaction to the times. Maybe it was a warning.

Either way, we should have been paying closer attention to No Trend, a band of outsiders from the bucolic Maryland exurbs who wrote scathing songs about the poison clouds they saw gathering on the horizon.

high-speed American punk made famous by Bad Brains, Black Flag, Minor Threat, Hüsker Dü, Die Kreuzen, the Dead Kennedys

Side note, Die Kreuzen rules, but did they slip into the AAA hardcore shorthand checklist recently or is this guy just being this guy.
