VARIOUS ARTISTS: Disarming Violence: CD

It’s absolutely amazing to me that a comp with heavy hitters like Dag Nasty, NOFX, All, Agnostic Front, Blanks 77, and Youth Brigade, not to mention the 2nd stringers represented here, totaling 25 bands, would have a grand total of one song worth a shit: Youth Brigade’s “Guns Are For…” The rest is pretty much pop punk dreck about as dangerous or creative as any Whitney Houston album.
