A punk rock classic introducing what would become the almost permanent lineup of the Vandals that we known and love today. So many timeless jams on here. Join us for PONG! Plus this anniversary issue does have a cool bonus track cover "KOKOMO" originally by THE BEACH BOYS (...and Uncle Jesse)

This CD was suprisingly a blessing... It wasn't everything I hoped it would be, but it is an awesome listen to the first of the Warren years... The vandals are a must for anyone getting into pop punk... even if you end up not liking them check some of the stuff out... But first check out Live Fast Diarrhea, Hitler Bad Vandals Good, or if you can find it, the quickening... stick to Live Fast Diarrhea though....this CD is really something more hardcore fans would enjoy... If you do like this CD though, check out the Sweatin' To The Oldies DVD...
