La Fuerza De Los De Abajo #27 (Argentina):
Trapped Like A Rat: "este CD salió en febrero de este año. Son un quinteto de Riverside, California. Es crust a pleno con la voz de Chantall al frente llevándola más que bien. 16 temas con mucha potencia."
Maximum Rock'N'Roll - Issue 328 (US):
Trapped Like A Rat: "Solid sixteen-track debut full-length album from this SoCal five-piece mixes hard-edged but catchy ragers with some streetpunk style anthems reminiscent of the early Casualties. Judging by the cover artwork and lyrics to tracks like "Cheers To Beers" or "Fashion Disorder," one might guess this band spends more time getting their look right and getting wasted to put much effort into their music, but the tunes deliver. Good, thick production, too. The hi-pitched vocalist kinda grated on me at first, but I got over it. Definitely worth checking out." --CS
Schizo Fanzine #5 (Sweden):
Trapped Like A Rat: "FFS is like a mix between Total Chaos and The Business with more focus on Total Chaos. Chantal have a voice that will break windows, and I can agree with some people that think her voice is just too much sometimes, but I love it in general. As you might know are my respect for US punkbands not the best. But FFS change my opinions pretty much and this 16 track CD can easy go on repeat on and on. If you listen to Ungovernavble Resistance Radio have you probably heard the already classic song “Cheers to beers” [All of the punx say CHEERS TO BEERS!, grab a cuople 40s and we drink away our cares. All of the punx say CHEERS TO BEERS! getting fucked up while the music fucks our ears] Chantal is the lead singer, but there’s three other members in the band who sing, just like in the song “Crap of the world” one of my favourite song... and they do it just as good as Chantal.
Raw fucking punk with a big fuck off attitude. I have a couple of copys of this CD in the distro. Buy it for fuck sake, the profit will go to Punk Illegal. So support the DIY scene. I don’t remember where I read it, but FFS is not street punk, this is raw punk with a touch of crust/käng." --Micke
Punk Rock, Hardcore and Ska Music Resource n Review (US):
Trapped Like A Rat: "a full length lethal injection from riverside's crusty punx themselves for fuck sake.OH YEAH! pure brilliance in sound and vocals as usual. this whole album reads anti-everything; with a beer attached to it. an album that is a crust punk overdrive and these guys and gal resemble total chaos, atari teenage riot, f-minus, naked aggression and homesick abortions. i reviewed their e.p.in january which has the same songs on it as the full length but then i didn't have as many songs to choose from so some i may have liked then i may not care for as much now. there really isn't much to complain about here with this 16 song hardcore crust punk fun pack except a few songs that didn't tickle my fancy but hey who says you have to like them all right?, break out of this trap and pick this beaut up and other kickass releases on unrepentant records. best songs-"trapped like a rat"(has a naked aggression feel to it), "seize fate by the throat", "piss and vinegar" ,"cheers to beers",
"disappear", "fashion disorder" (best guitar on this one off the whole album)" --beth
Big Wheel Magazine (US):
Trapped Like A Rat: "For a band who started out by "recording shit on the computer" and simply asking female lead vocalist Chantal to "come over and scream", For Fuck Sake, has been going strong ever seen and have made a respectable name for themselves in the crust Punk music scene. Signed onto Unrepentant Records and based in Riverside, For Fuck Sake’s "Trapped Like a Rat" is undeniable proof that they remain in the ranks of bands such as Blatz and Naked Aggression. Their full length album includes tight songs pertaining to Punk topics like the failures of society, religion, and of course, beer.
Through these sixteen tracks, the anger, frustration and passion of the band become apparent and infectious, especially through Chantal’s voice. It’s hard to pick the most notable songs on "Trapped Like a Rat", only because of their working class ideals, raw energy and thought-provoking and deep lyrics (namely "Seize Fate by the Throat", "Gods and Prophecies, "Got an Itch", and "Epitaph") employed in almost every song; humor displayed in the others such as "Rum Rum Rum" and "Cheers to Beers", where most of their thrash grind elements come in. For Fuck Sake also addresses the growing issue of corruption and following societal standards through a number of their songs, including "Fashion Disorder", "Disappear", "Two Faced Fuck" and the short but powerful, "Miscarriage of Civilization". However, the band isn’t all just angst; they take time to acknowledge a role model and savior to them in the touching song, "Pamela".
If you’ve missed out on their EP "Piss Drunk", released in August 2009, "Trapped Like a Rat" proves to be a high-quality record that will satisfy any crust Punk fan. Full of intensity and fury, For Fuck Sake raises the bar higher for other bands already in and entering the genre and are a must-listen to." --Sarah K.
Punk Globe (US):
Trapped Like A Rat: "FOR FUCK SAKE our Webmistress Sharla Cartner loves your name and we here at Punk Globe like your music.. This is the debut full length CD from this five piece Riverside, CA band. They do Unrepentant Records proud.. Cheers to Beers, Two Faced Fuck, Fashion Disorder and Crap Of The World are standout tracks... Hardcore punk with a metal overtones makes this band rawk. This is lead singer Chantal's first band while the others have been making a name for themselves for quite a few years playing with an array of bands... " --Ginger Coyote
Piss Drunk EP: "For Fuck Sake are crust punk superheroes. Tight (but not too tight) songs; big anthems dedicated to the failures of civilization and the glory of beer. I can get behind that. Their screaming female lead vocals, amazingly, work well (I say amazingly because I usually have a big problem with the screeching and screaming). When she sings, I can feel it in my own throat. I can’t imagine what she feels like at the end of a show. The combination of her lead vocals and the booming choruses works really well. Though I’ve never been a part of the spiked leather and bullet belt scene, I really got into this and would like to hear more." --Ty Stranglehold

Piss Drunk EP: "crust is a must when it comes to riverside california's for fuck sake.chantal from for fuck sake may just have a better voice than kirsten patches from naked aggression.for some reason for fuck sake remind me of atari teenage riot although atari teenage riot is more of an electronic band they follow political punk roots just like for fuck sake does and if you listen to both bands you may just hear simularities there.fuck the system before it fucks you is the obvious for fuck sake message.the piss drunk e.p. dons the bands hanging out getting drunk in a dirty alley way shooting the shit,telling you to fuck right off and pissing on the wall to make the words piss drunk e.p.,even the cat looks pissed.this band is mad as hell and is not going to take it.here we've got punk unfolded in the fastest form,art work on the cover by a pure genius and well for fuck sake a brilliant e.p. filled with anger,politics,religion and well just plain reality and of course a beer or too on"cheers to beers",for fans of atari teenage riot,naked aggression and f-minus,hell yeah definatley a 11!,best songs-"suffer through the apocalypse","seize fate by the throat"" --punk rock beth
