VIOLENT SOCIETY: The Complete Punk Collection: CD

Decent enough anthology of stuff from these spiky-headed punkers. Normally, my appreciation for bands that easily fall into the “parrot punk” category is about as positive as it is for lutefisk (quite possibly the worst fucking thing on the planet to pass itself off as food), but these guys seem to get it a bit more than others in the Krazy Colored, leather-clad set. They manage to cover Eater and MDC with enough conviction to come of as sincere, and from what I can make out of the lyrics, are a step above the other punters in that regard as well.
