Punk Rock Jukebox
A collection of sixteen bands playing sixteen punk rock “oldies.” For example Samiam plays Iggy and the Stooges’ “Search and Destroy,” Blood For Blood plays the Dead Boys’ “All This and More,” Indecision plays Fear’s “I Don’t Care About You,” Yuppicide plays the Specials’ “Concrete Jungle,” Anti-Flag plays Sham 69’s “What About the Lonely,” and The Enkindels play Billy Idol’s “White Wedding.”
There’s more (DRI, GBH, Circle Jerks, and Blitz are covered among the remaining tunes), but what’s the point? The versions are pretty true to form; punk rock needs to sound raw and dirty at times, these bands pull it off. But basically it appears to be a somewhat uninteresting compilation. Only for those who have to have everything punk rock.
