VARIOUS ARTISTS: BYO Presents – Sample This, Too!: CD

BYO has really upgraded their roster in the last few years. As a sampler, this has an incredible amount of bands to meet most people’s liking. Samples from upcoming releases by The Bouncing Souls (!), The Unseen (I didn’t like their earlier stuff, but this track is pretty good), Youth Brigade (Sean loves these guys!), Pistol Grip, One Man Army (My wife loves these guys!), Anti-Flag (I like these guys…), The Beltones (Sean and Todd Taylor love these guys and I think Megan does, too! They are growing on me), The Forgotten and Manic Hispanic (They are so good that even if these weren’t cover songs, they would still be one of the best bands out of OC). Previously released tracks by NOFX, Leatherface, Manifesto Jukebox, Kosher, Sixer, Filthy Thieving Bastards, and Rancid. All that for a very low, discounted price. Pass on one six pack (or a twelve pack if you like cheap beer) and go out and get some new music.
