It's hard to take Apocalypse Dudes
seriously, so it's best not to try. Turbonegro's greatest album mixes the best excesses of '70s and '80s hard rock and metal and delivers them with punk rock attitude. The result out-Spinal-Taps Spinal Tap, from the fake prog intro to "The Age of Pamparius" (which takes a swipe at Rush) to the call-to-arms "Rock Against Ass." They have enough catchy hooks to appeal to fans of fellow Scandinavian rockers the Hives, with lowbrow, so-dumb-they're-clever lyrics that should win over fans of the Farrelly brothers. --Robert Burrow
