Condemned 02:30
When you’ve had your fill Selling out your country Selling out the people I’m gonna remember You may sleep like a baby You may die like a king But I’ll know where I stood And that counts for something, right? Right? That counts for something . . . right? As it all burns to the ground While you pander for your paychek Selling us victory Selling off the ashes Maybe you don’t get it But I think you do And I’m gonna remember That counts for something, right? Right? That counts for something . . . right? When good faith is dead When integrity is dead When reason is dead When objective truth is dead When the rule of law is dead When democracy is dead When all hope is dead I’m gonna remember
Ants 00:55
It don’t care about your politics The ant don’t give a shit No time for hypocrites No time for measuring dicks And when that final day comes Lying there under the sun And they’re eating your face as one Then we’ll know who won Ants We’re lower than ants Ants We’re lower than fucking ants Ants!
It was a machine It was a big machine It made things easy It helped the world out But the thing kept growing And the pieces started breaking It was too big to see (That) it was all worn out Broken All worn out It's broken So throw that shit out, right? It was all consuming Like the cells of a cancer Crushing itself Under its own weight But the people kept building And patching and fixing While the vultures kept circling Until it all ran out Broken All worn out It's broken So throw that shit out, right? Broken It’s broken


The Unfit pride themselves on mixing lyrical depth with a sound that is comprised of equal parts catchy melodic punk and noisy hardcore.

Counting 80s punk as an inspiration, their steadily growing underground appeal and presence suits them well.

Ultimately, it's underground where the unfit toil against a devolving, sputtering mess all around them. Ants in the Big Machine.

The Unfit Seattle, Washington

The Unfit are a group of nobodies from Seattle. Probably some of the least interesting people you've never met. They don't really like to do much, but sometimes they get together and pretend they're a band.
