IF THE KIDS ARE UNITED is a 20-track greatest-hits compilation from punk pioneers Sham 69, including "Hersham Boys," "Borstal Breakout," "Hurry up, Harry," and "Angels with Dirty Faces."
Japanese edition includes two bonus tracks.
The borstal boys of the 1977 punk era had a lot of better-hyped if not more talented or sincere competition, but several reverent and thorough compilations in the 2000s have given the band their belated due. This retrospective gathers their combustible hits and fan favorites, including the anthemic "Tell Us the Truth," "If the Kids Are United," and "Hersham Boys."
