Fear - The Record

'The Record'

Genre/s: Hardcore Punk
For Fans Of: Circle Jerks, Germs, T.S.O.L, D.I

There's probably not all that much I can say about this band/album that hasn't already been said, but I'll give it a shot anyway. Fear were (and still are) an LA hardcore punk band who released this classic album in 1982. It's catchy, aggressive and it's basically just there to piss everyone off. I like everything about The Record - Lee Ving's semi-melodic snarl, the saxophone on 'New York's Alright' and the sudden curve ball that 'Fuck Christmas' throws at you. If you haven't listened to this yet, you're doing 'punk' wrong.
