Here's a little preview of what most of you will be stealing come punk rock summer camp.

  • Rancid - 'Sick, Sick World' Hard fuckin' Core
  • Bouncing Souls - 'Ballad of Johnny X' a Souls classic, great song
  • New Found Glory - 'So Many Ways' this band is closing in on the Ataris' world record of 'number of songs about chicks'. this is number 200, I think. Pretty good compared to the rest of their new album.
  • Anti-Flag - 'Zapista,Don't Give Up' Pretty powerful song from these political Pittsburgh punkers.
  • Madcap - 'Going on the Road' very bad, very annoying.
  • AFI - 'A Winter's Tale' this is a poppier side of AFI I haven't heard in a while. Pretty decent song, though more hardcore would have been to my liking.
  • Bigwig - 'Sink or Swim' this song made me go into my parents room and start moshing, then do a couch dive onto the tv, then smash the car parked in my space with a baseball bat. If there's a better song, I haven't heard it!
  • Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies - 'Don't let the sun go down on me' pretty good cover of Elton John. I'm still waiting on them to cover Raffi songs.
  • H2O - 'Unwind' How the hell did this get left off the new album. Too good I guess. Rockin song.
  • Midtown - 'Get it Together' If Weezer were punk, they'd be Midtown. Really good pop-punk with cool changes and a really cool intro.
  • Vandals - 'S.W.M' Great song from the best band ever. Hilarious. It also features a touch-tone phone solo!
  • Swingin' Utters - 'The Lonely' It is immpossible for this band to write a bad song. They didn't start here. An instant Utter classic.
  • Flogging Molly- 'Rebels of the Sacred Heart' I have seen the future of music, and Flogging Molly be thy name. This was recorded live on the radio, and it rules. Where's me Guinness?
  • Mighty Mighty Bosstones - 'Providence is...' No Ska, No Horns, sounds alot like Dropkick Murphy's. Pretty awesome song.
  • Tsunami Bomb - 'Take the Reigns' I don't know a damn thing about this band, but this song is pretty damn good. But, why must every chick singer in punk music sound like Tilt? It really is a mystery to me.
  • The Ataris - 'Looking back on Today' Acoustic, about a girl. Decent. They just regained the lead from NFG.
  • No Use For A Name - 'Enjoy the Silence- No use for this song. I love NUFAN, but this is a bland song by their standards. You might like it.
  • Kill Your Idols - 'Hippie Song' Cant understand a word, vocals sound like an old lawnmower, but the music is pretty cool old school punk rock.
  • The Casualties - 'Fight For Your Life' If you can get past the intro, this song is pretty good old school too. Start pounding your fist now to save some time.
  • The Living End - 'Sleep On It' Never liked this band, they're talented, but I just don't like 'em. This song sounds poppier than their old stuff, no suprise there. Still, not a great song by any means.
  • Lost City Angels - 'Edge of 21' Imagine Swingin' Utters meets Saves the Day. Emo-Street-Pop-Punk! You'll just have to hear it, cause that makes no sense.
  • Buck-O-Nine - 'Something to Find' Again, no ska and no horns from a ska band. I'm not complaining, pretty good song.
  • Sum 41 - 'Tables Have Turned' Recorded live. Pathetic attempt at hardcore. It's only 45 seconds, so the pain doesn't last long.
  • Deviates - 'Chaos' Fucking awesome song. Dark, fast, and plenty of changes. The more I listen to Deviates, the more I likes.
  • Autopilot Off - 'Indebted' Awesome song with 'major' sound from the artists formerly known as Cooter. Does this mean my Cooter shirt will be worth something one day?
  • Agent 51 - 'Radiation Nation' Good old school style punk with a catchy chorus. I like these guys.

    Why there are songs on here from bands not even on the tour, I don't know, but almost all of these songs are unrelesed and there are very few bad ones. The best comp I've bought in a while, although I will say that if it weren't for my extreme addiction to new music, I never would have bought it. Distract the guys at the Vans booth by setting your arm on fire, then have your buddy fill his backpack with shit. Works every time. By the way, I could use some new shoes.

    i didn't go but is the cd worth buying?

    Anonymous (October 3, 2001)

    I would have to say my favorite song is the No Use one, either that or The Living End. Those guys sound awesome for a 3-piece band. Oh yeah, the Madcap song is annoying because it's slow, the lyrics are cliched, and the singer's voice is whiny.

    i got this cd today. Ive wanted since it never came out. The rancid song is great. BUT the best song is tsunami bomb song. I HATE girl punk singers and their bands (except distillers) but this band just blew me away. This song is really really good. im now going to ahve to buy one of their cd's.

    Eddie (September 22, 2001)

    Wow, this CD rocks. I just finally got it, and I've got it cranked up. Almost every song is awesome. But why is the Madcap song annoying? I think it rocks...

    i hate sum 41, but the guy sounds nothing like fat mike. fat mike has a cool nasal singing voice. the kid from sum 41 has an annoying 'im trying to sound like im over 20' singing voice. dont even try to compare that shit to nofx.

    I'm not a big fan of hardcore, but the BigWig song is awesome! The rapping part in the Deviates sounds kinda like Crazy Town, but it doesn't suck, so that's always good.Yeah, I'm still trying to get that weird distortion from the Midtown song on my guitar.

    hey man this is fathead, i just heard the depeche mode song (nufan covers it on here) and it's not bad. glad someone noticed before me.- fathead

    Great album except for NFG and Sum 41, plus the annoying Casualties song. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned that the NUFAN song is a cover of a classic Depeche Mode song, not punk enough for ya'll? Tsunami Bomb are awesome by the way, caught them opening for the Living End here in Portland in May, they almost made me forget that I was in the pit with a bunch of teeny boppers...

    I don't really like Tilt. A better sounding band with a lead singer girl is Fabulous Disaster, but they're not so much to look at, though. Anyway, this comp is really kickass.

    I picked up the comp and yook a listen after I read the review. This is 10 times better than the previous comps and I don find it strange that there are a couple of bands on there that are not on the tour. Best songs on the comp Bigwig, Flogging Molly, AFI and Tsunami Bomb. How can you say the singer from Tsunamii Bomb sounds like Tilt! Is Tilt all you want to hear. Cinder can't sing at all .... the singer from Tsunami Bomb has a damn good voice. She completly blows away anything Cinder has done. Cinder has a good punk rock voice, but Tsunami Bomb's singer has a great all around voice. I saw them for the first time at the Phoenix Warped show and they are explosive (oh yeah, she's hot to). Don't get me wrong, I like Tilt but Cinder has a very distinct voice. I think what this comp really needed was to feature only the bands on Warped and throw in some more up and coming bands. Also to comment on another posting, there are only a couple of songs that have been released on this comp and not more than half. Unless there is something that you know and care to share, I'm all ears.

    Whatever. I'm not even gonna start about Sum 41. This is still a pretty good CD. Oh yeah, and Fathead still lives with his parents?

    ok the 3 things i dont like about this CD is NFG, sum41, and the ataris....NFG and the ataris can only write about girls...and sum 41 just sucks. But get the CD minus these 3 lame songs its a great warped tour comp.

    Anonymous (June 27, 2001)

    Awesome CD... The only thing I don't get is the big sticker proclaiming that all the tracks are previously unreleased, when only like half of them really are

    Anonymous (June 27, 2001)

    a great mix, but how can you not like Living End? They're Frickin' awesome mate!

    Anonymous (June 27, 2001)

    o yeah sickboi better bring a big backpack full of "half hour of power" and "all killer, no filler" (or vice versa) you know so you can throw shit at Sum 41

    Anonymous (June 27, 2001)

    havent heard the record, heard most of the songs, sounds cool, o by the way to everyone that even likes Sum 41 they sound like a major label attempt at NOFX, i cant believe the similarities between the two other than the fact that NOFX has been around for 13 years or so and is a lot better (you cant honestly tell me that guy doesnt sound like Fat Mike)

    Anonymous (June 26, 2001)

    Okay, personally I like Sum 41. The song "The Tables Have Turned" doesn't do them justice. Most of their songs are great pop punk songs. "Machine Gun," off of "Half Hour Of Power," is the first one that jumps into my head, great song. I can guarantee you that most of the people that say shit about them haven't even listened to one of their CDs, you can't judge a book by it's cover.

    PS: Autopilot Off kicks ass, it's a little weird that they're on the comp. and not on the tour.

    Anonymous (June 26, 2001)

    You know what? I -like- sum41. I know most people hate them and all, but i, unlike the rest of you elightened (ever-so) punk rockers approached this band with an open mind, and i enjoy the results. And, if you're gonna throw shit, go to that last Earth Crisis show and throw ground beef like some friends of mine did a couple years ago. (heh)

    "sleep on it" by the living end is actually a pretty old song. it was originaly on the prisoner of soceity single.

    sickboi (June 26, 2001)

    Gotta love Fathead's reviews, I can't wait to heckle and throw shit at Sum 41 this year at Warped...maybe some shoes...
