As a promotional device, Punk-O-Rama is above reproach. Cramming over 20 songs from over 20 different artists on Epitaph's roster onto one disc, and then offering it for under five dollars -- well, there's no denying that it's a bargain, even if you're not fond of the music itself. And there's no better way to determine whether you like this aggro, latter-day

Overview

As a promotional device, Punk-O-Rama is above reproach. Cramming over 20 songs from over 20 different artists on Epitaph's roster onto one disc, and then offering it for under five dollars -- well, there's no denying that it's a bargain, even if you're not fond of the music itself. And there's no better way to determine whether you like this aggro, latter-day punk than any of the Punk-O-Rama discs. Volume three offers cuts from almost everyone on Epitaph, including NOFX, All, Voodoo Glow Skulls, the New Bomb Turks, the Cramps, Rancid, the Humpers, Wayne Kramer, Gas Huffer, Red Aunts, Down by Law, Bad Religion, I Against I and Pennywise, among many others. Some songs sound a little similar, and it won't make new converts of anyone who wasn't already enamored the Epitaph sound, but it's an excellent way for the curious to become acquainted with this third- and fourth-generation punk.

I have always been pleased with the Punk O' Rama cds. I think that volume 3 is one of the better ones though. It blends many great bands together, such as NOFX, The Bouncing Souls, The Voo Doo Skulls and Ten Foot Pole. All the songs are so different from each other and you get a good variety from hardcore punk to emo punk and even some ska. Each band has their own distinct sound, so the cd is something you can listen to over and over again and not get bored with it.I would recommend this cd to any one who is looking for some new bands to listen to.
