For fans of hardcore, many would agree that the holy grail of the genre is Bad Brains' self-titled album originally released back in 1982 as a cassette-only release on ROIR. All the classics are here: "Sailin' On," "Banned In D.C.," "Pay To Cum," "Right Brigade" as well as one of their strongest reggae tunes, "I Luv I Jah." The front of the album boasts a quote from the Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch which sums up the proceedings simply: "The best punk/hardcore album of all time." Vinyl version includes free full-album MP3 download.
