Bad Brains – I Against I (SST, 1986): On their third studio album Bad Brains fused hardcore, reggae, and traditional rock, and emerged with their strongest songs ever. Bands like Faith No More, Fishbone, and Soundgarden borrowed heavily from this record. While Bad Brains’ earliest records are their most influential, this is perhaps their best. H.R.’s vocals on “Sacred Love” were recorded via jail telephone from Lorton prison when he was incarcerated for marijuana. This record was their apex before a long, weed-filled slumber and a 21st century reunion that has yielded mixed results.
