Still, there are enough bands who mix driving punk aggression with respect for the generally well-chosen tunes to make Before You Were Punk, Vol. 2 something more than simple retro contempt. Bands present include All, the Suicide Machines, the Bouncing Souls, NOFX, Lagwagon, Rocket from the Crypt, and MxPx.
