nerdy statistician alert Let's not forget Green Day was their opening act that exact tour (along with seaweed). Ironic? Whatever you chalk it up to, I saw it in Philly and it was as amazing as my 15 year-old self wanted it to be. Plus, it's not 20 years old yet... but what's a few months? (side note: did anyone else order ANYTHING from the epitaph "buy or die" promo/merch list that came even with this major label release?) Regardless, BR and the descendents were my lifeline throughout my adolescence and I thank you for highlighting a great band and a remarkable time period that seems amazingly farther than what I originally thought.

well said. I'm not adding anything, just a hearty "here here" that my thumbs up couldn't suffice

(Joining some of the choir...) Now doing a list without using songs from Is This It would've been more inventive, if not downright bold. Songs like Whatever Happened, 12:51, meet me in the bathroom, Heart in a cage, Razorblade (glaring omission overall...), Electricityscape, Macchu Picchu, UCoD, All the time- just to name more than a few.

Smug correction reply alert: Trevor Dunn was not in the Melvins at the time FNM broke up- he and Patton were in Mr. Bungle together.

as long as "horror business" and "bullet" made it I'm happy. "We bite", "angelfuck", "night of the living dead", "teenagers from mars" sooooo many great songs!!!

Bad Brains and Minor Threat are no-brainers, but goddamn it's good to see some love for Dag Nasty's Can I Say, one of my favorite and often overlooked hardcore albums! I now feel that ebbing and flowing intangible warm embrace from Stereogum

At the tender age of 14 it taught me how to harmonize, play a guitar-solo with conviction, and that drugs are bad; the first two of which I stuck with for the remaining years of my adolescence, and the third, well, some drugs are bad? No, seriously, heroin fucking sucks. Nice piece-

December 7, 2009 on How Do You Say “We’re Sorry, For Everything” In Spanish?
growing up and actually living in that region for 20+ years (YIKES...) I can actually say I've heard some gems like: "punching the clown" or "hey, u hear bout Gina? she dropped kid! Least it ain't mine!" My real education is from working the boardwalk those summers. I was almost ashamed at being ambivalent last night upon hearing them say shit like "pound it out"etc.
