Product Description


Punk rock has long been known for its short, loud, and snotty anthems, but this is taking things to extremes. None of the songs found here reaches the one-minute mark. Some are among punk's most esteemed anthems, while others are casual additions to the canon. In either case, even if you don't like one tune, well, there's another one coming in just a few seconds. This isn't the best introduction to these bands. The Descendents, for example, are punk-pop titans who and not at their best when aping the hardcore set. However, where else can you find Less Than Jake, Nerf Herder, Blink 182, Green Day, the Mr. T. Experience, Gwar, the Circle Jerks, D.O.A., Agnostic Front, and the Muffs all on one CD? There's no shortage of top-shelf names here, and more than a few surprises will keep you hopping. --Rob O'Connor

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest CD on the face of the earth Sept. 27 2002
Format:Audio CD
I was surfing around the net one day and somehow I came across Short Music For Short People. 101 bands doing 30 second songs?... This had to be one of the best ideas for a CD that I'd heard in a long time. Plus it was out on Fat Wreck Chords so I knew it couldn't be horendously bad. So, without really thinking about what I was doing, I bought it. I was not dissapointed by my purchase. For a CD that costs [$$$], this CD is a work of freaking art. But it's also much more than that. It's a compilation of some of the best ska, hardcore, and pop punk bands out there. Some on Honest Don's, some on Lookout!, some on Epitaph, some sell outs, and some on the almighty Fat Wreck Chords. Its got hilarious stuff by Fizzy Bangers, Blink 182, Nerf Herder, The Mr. T Experience, Gwar, Descendents, The Vandals, NOFX, Wizo, Bouncing Souls, H2O, and a bunch of other bands. Its got those amazing guys of The Living End doing an amazing song. Its got The Queers doing a song about hate. Its got Less Than Jake thanking a bunch of people. Its got those Chicago boys 88 Fingers Louie. Its got those funny guys from Honest Don's who call themselves Chixdiggit! Its got Good Riddance. Its got The Bouncing Souls. Its got Lagwagon. Its got Green Day. Its got the Offspring. And lets not forget Bad Religion. So basically its got more bands then I can remember. And its only 50 minutes. Cramming 101 bands into 50 minutes? Genius.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ehhh March 3 2002
Format:Audio CD
Short Music For Short People is perhaps too short for me. The songs aren't really songs, like someone said. It seems to me that Fat Mike said, "hey, let's take a chance" and he did, but it didn't work. If you ask me, the best songs are from the already established bands like Blink 182, Offspring, Green Day, Pennywise, The Vandals, The Ataris, Unwritten Law, AFI, Nerf Herder, NOFX, Misfits, Guttermouth, etc. A lot of the hardcore bands on here (Spazz to name one) are just terrible, and what's the ... deal with the Lunachicks? Some of the songs are just noise or unstructured music. A lot of people say the bad songs don't overshadow the good, but I disagree, to me, [money] isn't worth the 15 minutes or so of good tunes, and an extra 40 minutes of .... If I were you, I'd say download the songs from the bands listed above: after all, it wouldn't take that long to download, and you saved yourself [money]. I didn't. Be happy for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars good idea, good cd Dec 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
What is it?
This CD is 101 punk bands, each doing 30 second songs. This is a very good idea, and some of the songs are actually ok.
Will I have heard of any of the bands?
Yes, it has some gread bands such as Less Than Jake, Unwritten Law, Blink 182, Green Day, No Use For A Name, Guttermouth, Lagwagon, The Offspring, Youth Brigade, The Misfits, Snuff, Penywise, NOFX, Rancid, and a lot more. This is also good to get a taste of what some other bands are like, it can introduce you to so much more great music!
Is it good value?
It's not bad, ten dollars for 50 minutes of music. I think the value is good.
So should I buy it?

not only is this cd an excelent sampler of about a million great punk rock bands, it's the funniest thing i've heard in a long time. all the songs are about thirty seconds long, so they cram 101 songs in there. and they're all by different bands. some of these non-punk bands that are really popular have these awesome songs that no ones ever heard before, like a track from blink 182, green day, and the offspring.... (see, i told you they wern't punk).
but i loved this cd because it was so funny. since the songs are under a minute each they end up being really funny instead of dragged out songs about girlfriends. the first track is eight seconds long: "Why can't people understand, i got a short attention span, short attention span." the end. i was laughing just becuase it's so short. then there are other great songs, like the descendents singing: "i like food, food it good." i was laughing so hard. then a song by No Means No where they start out with a guy counting off slowly: "a one, a two, a one two three four," then suddenly swich to this insane fast loud music. the last track is just a guy counting. "...twenty seven, twenty eight, twenty nine, thirty second song!"
if you'd like to get into punk rock this cd is for you. you'll find some really awesome bands on it. i know, you're saying "the songs are all thirty seconds" but that doesn't mean they are not worth listening to. if you love punk rock and you want to laugh for hours this cd is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! Aug. 7 2001
Format:Audio CD
"101 songs?" I thought. "No way."
Amazingly, the CD ALMOST pulls it off! A minority of the tracks can't really be described as songs... they are just strings of obcenities or noise with no real structure. However, these are the minority... the rest clearly show that anyone who says that punk bands don't contain musicians have never really bothered to listen. Further, the composers of the best tracks on this CD display great skill in that they manage to present a complete work within 30 seconds.
Featuring tracks from superstars of the genre to some pretty obscure acts, the album is part survey, part damn cool novelty collection.
At about 2/3rd the price of many other CDs as full as this one, it is an excellent value! (Heck, if all the disc contained were tracks #8, #9, #10, #12, #20, #28, #29, #33, #35 [I really love this one!], #40, #41, #42, #43, #49, #51, #52, #53, #55, #58, #59, #80, #83, #89, #90, #98, and #99, #100, and it would still be a better value than lots of CD singles and even many albums. The tracks listed above are all great mini-songs and many of them are darn funny to boot.)
There are about 8 or 10 rather weak tracks on the disk--hence the 4 star rating instead of 5. But, they go by so fast that you may not even notice them.

5.0 out of 5 stars kick ass
quite possibly one of the coolest albums I own. If you don't like the song, it's only 30 seconds, and for the most part there aren't that many that suck. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars It's not 'Nevermind The Bollocks!', but it's FUN!
I picked this up for the reason that it only cost [a little bit] at a local record store. I didn't expect much from it considering it is 101 bands doing 30second songs. Read more
