For Laura Jane Grace, Punk Was A Form Of Armor

Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! is on the latest episode of NPR’s Fresh Air podcast.

It was a form of expression, in a way, that I couldn’t express myself how I wanted to otherwise. And it also served as a form of armor, because when you’re wearing a big leather jacket with spikes on it and you’re charging out your hair with Knox gelatin, I mean, you’re like, arming yourself. I got beat up a lot, so that was something to kind of hold onto.
