While purists will haggle over the relative merits of Paul Rachman and Steven Blush's documentary, AMERICAN HARDCORE, it's difficult to find many faults with its accompanying soundtrack. This 26-track single-disc anthology covers nearly all the bases of one of the most incendiary musical subcultures in American history. With songs from Black Flag, Minor Threat, Negative Approach, D.O.A., SS Decontrol, Cro-Mags, the Big Boys, MDC, and Die Kreuzen, among others, the soundtrack not only covers the many regional scenes and slight stylistic variations of the sound, it offers compelling evidence of the genre's immense and lasting impact on punk, metal, and underground rock. Traversing the entire country and covering the years 1980 to 1986 in record time, AMERICAN HARDCORE--like its namesake movement--packs one quick and wicked punch.
