VARIOUS ARTISTS: Punk O Rama 10: CD

Picked this up outta the “nobody loves me pile” solely for the as-yet-unreleased Coup track, which is great, as can be expected. I also snuck a peek at the Dangerdoom (Dangermouse and MF Doom) track, which is also hella cool in its own right. Feeling daring, I put on the unreleased Bad Religion track and found that it wasn’t too bad, either. So I figured, “fuck it, the rest can’t be all that bad,” and started the disc at the beginning. Somewhere around the third emo-tinged pop tune that sounded like a Toto outtake, I lost control of my excretory bodily functions, my eyes started bleeding, weird yellowish goo started oozing from my eardrums, and I found myself writhing on the floor and screaming uncontrollably. Nice to know Epitaph’s releases still have that same ol’ charm.
