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
Top Customer Reviews
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?
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.
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.

It might not be the best punk compilation (check out the Peace/War double album or the Dischord box-set or the Punk-O-rama series for some alternatives) but its definitely an... Read morePublished on Oct. 16 2003 by godhatesacoward

This cd has tons of essential bands (the famous ones) and tons that have music just as good. If not for the music, then buy this CD because it makes for excellent drinking games. Read morePublished on Jan. 15 2003 by EK

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 morePublished on July 22 2002 by Dev
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 morePublished on July 6 2002 by Ryan Allen
This is an amazing album, true punk to chill to. My only problem is that my CD player is VERY old and can not support that number of tracks so i have to use my comp to play them. Read morePublished on May 28 2002 by Cained
