  Almost all of these pre-date the eighties by a couple years, but since punk
played a big role in the early eighties music scene, I feel this CD fits in
pretty well in this list. It's a decent album and I can't really single out
any song over another that I would have wanted replaced, except maybe "I Wanna
Be Sedated" in favor of any other Ramones song, I see that one a little too
often on compilations.  It's all punk, so each song is pretty much playable
next to any other :). I liked it, and I needed some Dead Kennedys in my CD
collection to help round things out a little. Recommended only if you like
punk, especially the late seventies/early eighties variety.
