Add this quote to the list of Sentences Not Often Heard From Punk Rock Legends: "When I got laid off, I could have pivoted real quick and gotten a university job, but I just thought, 'Yeah, the environment is not right, and the band is going great, and might as well have some fun and let it play out and maybe in a few years I can get back into science.' " Descendents frontman Milo Aukerman's biochemistry career hitting a snag means that fans of skate culture, surf and hyper-caffeinated drum fills are a ticket purchase away from seeing the California rockers live, and the band's longevity means trading in relics like "No FB" for more socially awakened fare like "Who We Are," profits of which benefited ACLU, Planned Parenthood and the Southern Poverty Law Center: "Woke up this morning to a different world/They're stomping on immigrants and groping girls/There's nothing American about us now/A whole population driven underground."
