Over the last four decades D.O.A. have released 17 studio albums, sold over a million albums and played 4,000 shows on five different continents. The band’s albums, shows and attitude has won over three generations of fans and influenced the likes of Green Day, Nirvana, Offspring, Henry Rollins, David Grohl and The Red Hot Chilli peppers, to name a few. Joe has also found time to write two books: I Shithead: A Life in Punk and TALK – ACTION = 0.
From day one, D.O.A. has helped organize and lead hundreds of benefit concerts and protests for good and just causes like environmental issues, women’s rights, food bank benefits, First Nations rights and they have organized and stood against war, racism and weapons proliferation, amongst others.
Keithley has been called a cultural politician, trying to change the world from outside the system. Now he is running for Mayor of his home town of Burnaby, under the Green Party banner, attempting to change the system from inside. Joe and the band were also ardent supporters of the Occupy Movement, realizing this was a step towards equality in our world. Joe is always looking for a way to push “grassroots democracy” and like his idol Pete Seeger, he and the band won’t give up.
So that in a few words is D.O.A. When they take their wild, unbridled show live show on the road, it’s a must see, because this is one of the last real punk rock bands that still gets out there and kicks ass and still tells it like it is. It’s always an atmosphere of chaos, veering out of control, but somehow, at the last minute, D.O.A., manages to reign all of it back in. And in an indescribable way, you are not quite the same afterwards.
