Product Description

Short Music For Short People

Amazon.ca

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

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.

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?
Definitely.

In keeping with the theme of this CD, I'll keep my review short. In short, this CD kicks serious *ss. It's worth the price just to hear Blink 182's song (and I don't care much for Blink, either, so that's saying something...), where it's basically "how many obscenities can we use in 30 seconds?". It's got something for everybody, even those who only like the MTV punk (Blink, Green Day, Offspring, etc.), older punks (Bad Religion, Circle Jerks, Subhumans), and punk favorites (Pennywise, Rancid, NOFX, No Use For A Name, Vandals). Everyone who's anyone in punk is here, even newbies The Living End make an appearance. The only downside is, you need the tracklisting right in front of you, so you know what song you're on. I wouldn't recommend listening to this in the car, however. Trust me, without the tracklisting, 12 songs will go by before you can blink. There is some crap in this CD, though. The Goober Patrol is downright annoying, to name one. The Descendants's song is also annoying. That said, There's more than enough good stuff to make this CD worth purchasing. Fat Mike did an amazing job putting this CD together. Buy this if you're a true punk, or are just getting into punk. Or, if you don't know a thing about punk and have been wanting to check it out, this CD is exactly what you're looking for.

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.

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. If you like the song, there are plenty more like it. The Blink 182 song is standard at the concerts, and the Hi-Standard and Offspring songs are awesome too.

This is, quite possibly, the best compilation ever. You get just about every variant of punk there is. You get everything from punk jokesters NOFX to ppolitical punkers Anti-Flag, from the scream and shout Offspring to the ska of Less Than Jake, from the REAL punk of Rancid to radio friendly blink-182. One thing I love about this CD is, just about every track rocks, and the ones thta don't are just 30 seconds, so no love lost. And there's no continuity- you're constantly switching bands. If you've ever had any interest in any kind of punk music, you've really got to find yourself a copy of this CD. It's fun, it's punk, it's great.
