The album that broke one of the best punk bands in years. I just feel the need to review the CD for anybody who hasn't bought it yet. This includes many Rancid staples such as; "Salvation," "Nihilism, " "Side Kick" and the excellent "Radio." Some call this Rancid's best work along with "And out come the wolves." Tim Armstrong proves his worth with gritty tales of streetlife, social & political injustices, and what it is to be "Punk." Catchy bass & guitar licks, solid drumming, and singalong chorus' are everywhere. All 23 tracks are great, the CD is a must for any punk. Released in the apex year of 1994 listen to the fury, aggression, talent, energy, and passion of one of the greats in recent years.

dear sir below me, I think you should not claim your truth as the only one, and I believe many people enjoy all Rancid's records. Calling them sellout is ridiculous as they never signed to a major label. They're a great band which never fails.

The last good rancid record period. After this they turned to complete shit and owned sellout status. But pickup 2000's self titled one for a glimpse into what they used to be and never buy another rancid cd besides the first 2 and the 2000 self titled!

Best Rancid album in front of the 1993 S/T. I hate that ska shit so after let's go, it went downhill for me.

I think this album really hit it's peak within the first five songs. Still a great album though.

I would never call Rancid street punk. Street punk sucks. Street punk can blow me. Rancid is clearly a very talented ska band and deserves to be classified with other great ska bands such as mustard plug and No Doubt. No Doubt is quite clearly a very talented group and none of you on here give them the respect they deserve. I think it's because Assorted Jellybeans has been spreading evil rumors about Gwen Stefani. Fuck Assorted Jellybeans.

this one, like the albums "bedtime for democracy" by DK,"dookie" by green day and "out come the wolves.." also by rancid need no reviewing. most punks and some others even, have these and know theyre pure genius

Covering all forms of rock, sure there are a lot better records around than this, but covering punk, this is one of the best albums in years.

I actually think all Rancid CD's have been great. They change every time, and that's for the better and it shows that Rancid are a truly talented band, Let's Go broke them through to the world and it will remain vital to me for as long as I live.

this and their debut self/titled album are the reason i still like rancid. I've been disappointed since, but 'Let's Go' has always been there for me. 'Motorcycle ride' and 'St.MAry' are the best songs.- fathead
