Product Description

Product Description

Laying down the groundwork for what would become one of the most visceral bands of all time, Nervous Breakdown was the first release from Los Angeles' Black Flag. While it is certainly more "punk" than their later work (singer Keith Morris sounds like a graduate from the Johnny Rotten school of diction, and Greg Ginn's guitar work is less modal), all the songs have the basic elements of what made Black Flag special: rage, anger, intensity, cynicism. Most definitely the blueprint for what would be termed L.A. hardcore, Nervous Breakdown is one of the quintessential releases in the history of American punk/independent music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Punk Rock, BABY!!! 9 Feb 2005
By Cameron Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Forget british punk or anything going on today, this is the REAL THING! Music made by punks for punks. Nervous Breakdown might just be the best damn punk song ever (even beating anything on Damaged). The rest are great, too, if a little short.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first- and best- of the early Flag recordings 6 Jun 2004
By Erik Samson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A simple- even Ramones-ish- guitar riff kicks off the oppening title song, followed by a spaced-out, almost drunken voice which sings "I'm about/ to have a nervous breakdown/ my head really hurts..." And so the world is introduced to Black Flag, one of the greatest and most enduring punk bands of all time.
Though Nervous Breakdown (the album, not the song) is only five minutes and twenty seconds long, its sound manages to stay so constantly fresh and exciting that you can play the entire EP ten times over and still feel like you're listining to it for the first time.
The lyrics are instantly memorable, like the chorus of "I've had it," in which Keith Morris chants "I'm.... Going.... To.... EXPLODE I'VE HAD IT!" Gregg Ginn's guitar playing, though childshly simple, is stll ferocious and brilliant, creating the perfect templete over which the lyrics can be sung.
Though not as angry or proffessionally played as later efforts, Nervous Breakdown remains my favorite Flag record, and a great landmark of Punk.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE THIS ALBUM 25 Aug 2002
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I will probably get crucified for saying this, but I feel that this is Black Flag's best release. This is true American punk at it's finest. Just to let you know where I'm coming from, I think that "Everyting Went Black" is Black Flag's second best release and Keith Morris is one of my favorite singers of all time. I have nothing against Henry Rollins, but pre-Rollins Black Flag is in my opinion the finest American punk band of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Flag's first EP 24 Mar 2004
By "topolski2g" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This Album is perfect. However, I advise you to get "The First Four Years", because it is a better value, and showcases all the pre-Rollins material. That being said, this album is essential to any punk collection. The first song "Nervous Breakdown" is incredible. Greg Ginn's throbbing guitar and Keith Morris's raw, angry vocals give this track a 5 out of 5. Next, "Fix Me" is THE song that got me into punk rock. It gets 5 out of 5 stars. "Iv'e Had It" is a great song that gets 4 out of 5 stars. With lyrics like (I can't go to work the boss is a jerk/I ain't got time for this school 'cause the f***ers are fools)you will find yourself listening to it over and over. Finally, "Wasted" gets 3 out of 5 stars. It's good, but not great. The main point is, you need this CD, so buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best EPs that exist. 31 July 2013
By Bo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
This EP is a must-have piece of music for any hardcore punk fan. There are 4 songs on this EP with the longest one being the title track, which is about 2 and a half minutes. Despite that, each song is a concentrated burst of energy that continues throughout each song. The lyrics are very well written along with the signature guitar riffs of Greg Ginn. The vocals may be different from what Black Flag is more famous for (the Henry Rollins screaming vocals), but are still very well delivered. Overall, an awesome, well rounded hardcore punk masterpiece.
