VARIOUS ARTISTS: All Ages: CD

No Redeeming Social Value, Ensign, Indecision, Double Crossed, Kill Your Idols, Vitamin X, Destroyed by Anger and a gaggle of other hardcore groups cover songs by the Descendents, Underdog, the Rolling Stones, GG Allin, Raw Deal and others. Some of it’s good, most of it’s pretty bad, especially the Peeping Toms and Milhouse, who should be kneecapped for their crimes against the Descendents. The Putrid Flowers’ ‘80s medley, however, was an absolute riot, especially their segue from Billy Joel’s “The Longest Time” to Metallica’s “One.”
