Bad Brains [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
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. The ensuing years after its initial release haven't dulled the album's fury and rage in the least, and it's still impressive how the band can switch gears from red-hot hardcore to cool reggae dubs in the blink of an eye. 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 back of the album boasts a quote from the Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch, which sums up the proceedings simply, "the best punk/hardcore ...

[Although Bad Brains was available on CD on the now-defunct In Effect label in the late '80s then titled Attitude: The ROIR Sessions with a different album cover, it's since been remastered and re-released with its original cover, as well as an untitled bonus track added at the end.]

    Changed my life...

    Yeah once I got this album my whole view towards punk changed completely by basically thinking many other punk bands as crud. This CD broadened my musical tastes so much and making me understand the term punk rock energy. Also for once, I was able to give raggae a chance through this CD and really loved it. This CD changed my life so much. This is a must have!

    Adam Yauch is right

    This album has truly changed my life. I first heard it in the ninth grade and five years later I still get excited whenever I listen to it. The energy with which the Bad Brains play is simply amazing. They sound as if they are trying to destroy themselves with sheer sonic energy. Not only are they intense, but the mixture of hardcore punk with slow reggae ballads shows the listener that the Bad Brains aren't just another punk band. An excellent album from an excellent band!
