The first time I heard Against Me! was on a mix CD made by my high school crush. I didn’t have the track listing, but was struck by the simple, muted guitar line, xylophone, and Laura Jane Grace’s feeble shouts of “When you sleep, nobody’s homeless/When you sleep, you can’t feel the hunger.” The song was “8 Full Hours of Sleep,” and I listened to it on repeat until the mix CD became too scratched to play. Then I bought the band’s 2002 debut, Reinventing Axl Rose, and also played that until it wore out. I grew to love their whole discography, from the cheesy (“I Was a Teenage Anarchist”) to the real heart-bleeders (“True Trans Soul Rebel”). But I always came back to “8 Full Hours of Sleep,” a song so perfect that listening to it at different points in my life I felt angst, anger, love, longing, emptiness, helplessness, and, on the rare occasion, real hope.
