Banned in DC: Bad Brains' Greatest Riffs distills the greatest hardcore punk band of all-time's career highlights down to a 23-track anthology. Prior to its 2003 release, several Bad Brains retrospectives and archival releases had been made available, but a proper entry route -- unless you consider one of the band's two greatest achievements, 1982's Bad Brains or 1986's I Against I -- was still necessary. This disc, smartly selected by band manager Anthony Countey, fills that void. It begins with the group's debut single, "Pay to Cum," and works through 1989's Quickness, their last truly significant album. For those who have been along for the whole ride, there's the ...

For those who have been along for the whole ride, there's the previously unreleased "Riot Squad." However, this disc is valuable to the diehards as well, since a number of the inclusions are on CD for the first time. Plenty of fanatics made mix tapes as introductions for friends that resemble this disc. In that sense, this official release has been a long time coming.

    OMG!!! GREATEST BAD BRAINS CD EVER!

    What can I not say about this album? Well first off, I must say that Bad Brains is the best hardcore punk ever of all time! They were so original and different and this CD let's you truly get to hear how they've progressed over the years including such classics as "Pay to Cum" to "I Against I" (my personal favorite). Also includes some great raggae songs such as "I Luv I Jah" and "I and I Survived". Basically, if you want to be a well rounded Bad Brains fan, get this album.
