Exemplified by the burning patrol car, disdain for law enforcement is a common sentiment amongst most all modern day hobos.

“Candlemass” is a popular band from Sweden, and the patch was hand sewn-on with floss. Classified as doom metal, this is one of many bands popularized in the late 80’s-present within the freight train riding and crust-punk sub cultures. Hardcore, crust, thrash, grind, doom, are just few of the extremely aggressive music genres which are heavy laden with misanthropic and anti-capitalist ideals.

And while on the road, they naturally build community through genuine kinships, rich with culture and meaning.
