Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The look back culture can be a great thing, from the post-punk emphasis of the last few years (Scritti Politti's Early, Rip It Up & Start Again, The Slits reforming, Josef K's recent compilation), to festivals like All Tomorrows Parties (which Flipper & Negative Approach featured here both played at recently in Minehead), and onto something like this. This is the soundtrack that ties into the upcoming documentary, based on Steven Blush's book 'American Hardcore: A Tribal History.'

This brand of punk rock, as is made evident in books like 'Get in the Van' or 'This Band Could Be Your Underground' or the Rollins sections in John Robb's Punk Rock reader, lasted much longer in the US than in the UK. Punk rock was probably created in the 1960s, probably the Sonics or The MC5 or The Stooges...this was the next step on, a full on punk influenced underground scene that emphasised the independent, that tapped into angst and a sense of hopelessness apparent to the Reagan-generation, and had a quality that became apparent in the faster side of metal: Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, even Metallica in their earlier incarnation. American hardcore, like No Wave, would lead to lots of alternative music later on in the decade - perhaps everything culminating with the double-edged success/failure of Nirvana, which sadly set the tone for pseud-punk to come. Watch the film, I'm sure it will explain things much more clearly!

This compilation takes in 26 tracks exemplifying this genre, the majority of which has aged quite well - though the odd track is a bit tedious, like a lot of thrashy fast stuff you need to be in the mood.

Virtually every track on this is worth a listen, even the ones I have heard a thousand times before. The sound quality is quite good bearing in mind most was recorded for $3 or something 25+ years ago.
A bit more sleeve notes/history would have been interesting, and the obligatory photo of Henry Rollins is bogus as he does not feature on the cd!
Still, very much worth getting as would be accompanying DVD if it ever gets released in the UK.

Should be required listening before starting a band 16 Mar 2008
By AIC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
No, not EVERYONE'S favorite tracks are represented here but this is a VERY GOOD brief overview of the genre. It's a place to start if you're not familiar with Hardcore and may cause 90% of your current record collection to become obsolete (at least until you're old enough to realize that liking only ONE kind of music is kind of silly).

This record should be copied a million times and handed out to the poor kids who go to Good Charlotte concerts thinking they're "punk". Today's youth aren't brainless! They just have a hard time finding the real stuff!

P.S. (No Kennedys or Misfits due to the ongoing legal entanglements between all the former members. Same deal as the movie.)

If you like punk, this is for you. 13 Feb 2008

I saw a concert in LA w/Fear, Circle Jerks, and Black Flag. Wow this really brought it all back. If you like punk or want to get in touch with the punk movement of the 80s in the US this is for you.

Admittedly not a punk guru. I dig about half of these, but that said,there is a very good cross section. Probably not a bad place to start, but, only if you are very unpunk.

history in the making 17 Jan 2007
By Tyler Estabrook - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I really like this soundtrack because it's rare to find so many of the trailblazing hardcore bands of the early '80s all in one place. Some of these tracks were previously very rare, at least on CD. In particular, the Middle Class' "Out of Vogue" alone, to me, is worth the price of admission. It's barely a minute long but it has the distinction of being (arguably) the first ever hardcore single. And of course, alongside some of the more obscure bands, the "big three" of first wave hardcore (Black Flag, Minor Threat, and Bad Brains) are represented here. If you haven't heard these bands yet, you owe it to yourself to check this out. All in all, this CD a great introduction to what hardcore is all about.
