VARIOUS ARTISTS
AMERICAN HARDCORE: THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN PUNK ROCK 1980-1986
RHINO

An accompaniment of the documentary of the same name, this 26-track soundtrack is far from comprehensive, but it does illuminate a good cross-section of the seminal days of the genre nonetheless. Featuring Bad Brains, Black Flag, Minor Threat, and many rare and out of print tracks by regional faves, chances are if you own these tunes, they're all on vinyl and if you never heard of half of these bands, class has just begun. For a trip down memory lane or a crash course for those that wondered where Henry Rollins came from, this disc should provide ample satisfaction on both fronts.
