Sonic Reducer: Punk Rock Bowling 2016

Today, we continue our Sonic Reducer series! In the series, Punknews writers compress a band, genre, theme, or time period into a playlist that would fit on a single CD. Along with the playlist, you'll get either an overview of the topic, such as a band introduction, or a story about how the music in the playlist moved or changed the writer. Today, Editor Sam Barrett covers some of her favorite tunes by bands playing Punk Rock Bowling!
