I didn't know that early hardcore punk songs are this good. I'm already hooked on the Minor Threat original material, and I will look into many others, too (D.I., G.B.H., Dr. Know, Verbal Abuse in particular)
yeah i agree with the dude below...for those who don't know punk was a big influence directly and indirectly ways in many musical genres...and actually this album is pretty good with some hardcore and punk on it
for those who have not heard this yet.. you can listen to the Pap Smear Demo (Jeff Hanneman's hardcore band.. also featuring Dave Lombardo and Rocky George (Suicidal Tendencies)), who did the originals of "DDAMM" & "Can't Stand You"
thanks all, glad to see others agree. It is not as if this was the start of a new sound, it was more less a tribute album. I mean, listen to say "Kill em All" by Metallica, and you can hear how much they were influenced by the Mistfits on that album. The hardcore scene in the early 80's was great, tons of great bands. Maybe one day we will see a sequel to this one, that would be cool.
