Editors’ Notes

This kohl-eyed, Jesse Malin–fronted quintet had short hair, big shoes, and fat guitars, and the tunes were loud, fast, and loose. Of the 12 great songs on this Ric Ocasek–produced 1996 album, the best—“She Stands There” and “Capitol Offender”—use outsider themes with hooks obviously made by guys who grew up listening to Cheap Trick, The Clash, The Minutemen, and The New York Dolls. In other words, songs with the kinds of hooks bands couldn’t write anymore. On its second album (its first for Columbia Records), D Generation made rock 'n' roll exciting again: a reminder that we lived in a cheap and brutal world (nailed on “No Way Out”) and that somebody needed to remind the '90s kids that they didn't had to suffer Alanis Morissette and Boyz II Men. No Lunch is like sloganeering graffiti on walls of fading malls, a made-in-lower-Manhattan reaction to the times. It’s everything rock 'n' roll, only magnified. Columbia had high hopes for D Generation conquering America like Guns N’ Roses. It would’ve been a better world for rock 'n' roll had it succeeded.

Customer Reviews

Get it!

I can't believe no one's reviewed this album yet. They were great, not just at distilling the old-school sound down to it's essence, but at writing music in general. They knew exactly what to play and when (it's like they thought "What would The Stooges or AC/DC do?" when writing), and made simple riffs rock. I don't know how much of this record Jesse Malin wrote, but he has some solo stuff out. I had this on tape when I was younger and I was just going to download it.

Am Album Needed in Any Collection

Well, this may not be a cup of tea for everyone; but, this album is simply superb. I am not a fan of all the tracks on this album; but for the most part, the rest hold it up. "She Stands There" is such a well-performed and composed piece... thus, being the reason why I bought it. Overall, great stuff and anyone who enjoys Alt or Glam Punk.

Great underrated mid 90's punk album

Any fans of punk mid 90's may want to check this out.


Formed: 1991 in New York, NY

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s

While groups such as the Strokes and the White Stripes get most of the credit for spearheading the garage rock revival movement of the early 21st century, there were several similarly styled bands of the mid- to late- '90s that preceded the aforementioned acts (with far less commercial success and press), such as D Generation. Formed during 1991 in New York City, the band automatically turned a blind eye towards the burgeoning Seattle movement, as their look and sound was straight out of NYC circa...
