Your Review
Punk rock would not exist without this album, needless to say. This sonic album chunks out fast and simple blows that beat you down by the time you reach the end. To some these tracks may come across as too simple or repetitive, but to me they still feel like they contain a great deal of creative power to them.

Favorite track: Beat On The Brat
A legendary album by legends
The simplicity of this record is what makes it great. Most tracks only utilize three chord progressions which would lay the landscape for future punk albums. Many artists owe their sound to the Ramones, bands such as the Dead Kennedys to Minor Threat and Agent Orange. This is classic punk and it rocks.
C'mon, track 1 is enough in itself. Great punk flow runs through its entire length.
