Okay but it's an important punk rock artifact

Although this album is rather cut and paste punk rock it is an extremely important artifact. Not only because it was Ian MacKaye(Bass) ,Jeff Nelson(Drums)(Ian and Jeff would go on to start Minor Threat) and also Nathan Strejcek's(Youth Brigade) first band but because of what it meant for punk rock itself. The recording of this album put Ian and the boys into contact with Inner Ear Studios while would house pretty much every dischord album to date. Also once the band split up they decided that they would combine their money they made and put out a record, thus Dischord was born. Thanks to Dischord we have some of the greatest east coast punk bands on record for generations to hear. The music is a little derviative but remember this is when this kinda of music was almost unheard of. This is the sound of a movement beginning. It helped pave the way for what punk rock was to be become


iTunes doesn't have a lot of the punk bands that I want to listen to in the store. The Circle Jerks, for some reason, aren't in the American store. Don't ask me why. Anyway, when I went to go look for The Teen Idles, there they were. I bought this and was pleased beyond belief. iTunes may not have all the punk it needs to have in its store, but if I had to pick something to download from the store, it would be this. Go get it.


This album is part of a collection my junkie roommate lifted from the house. It sounds just as great as it did years ago.


Formed: 1979 in Washington DC

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s

Despite only being extant for roughly 14 months, the Teen Idles were a crucial band in Washington, D.C., punk rock history. The quartet, which featured Dischord Records founders Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson, released that label's first record and established many of the physical and philosophical beachheads (including those of the greatly misunderstood straight-edge movement) that set the stage for one of American hardcore's greatest bands, Minor Threat. Formed in the summer of 1979 out of the ashes...
