Yeah, another QUEERS reissue! While THE QUEERS explore whole new areas of pop harmonies that were only hinted at on previous records (there's even a 60s style Farfisa organ on "Janelle, Janelle" and "Punk Rock Girls"), they definitely haven't said goodbye to their own style of bare bones, in your face punk rock, as evidenced by such cute little ditties as "I'm Okay, You're Fucked" and "Brush Your Teeth". "Don't Back Down" features 14 songs, which range from butt-slamming classic punk rock to exquisitely beautiful pop.

One Of The Greatest Punk Albums Ever

""Don't Back Down" and "Love Songs For The Retarded" are my two favorite Queer's albums. And two of the very best punk albums ever. Not since "London Calling" and "Nevermind The Bollocks" has punk been this good. I don't care much for the Beach Boys' cover which is the album's namesake, but you have 13 other amazing tracks. Clever lyrics, fast hard music and vulgarity I haven't heard since Grandma stopped drinking. "Born To Do Dishes" is a great anthem for those of us who can't afford to buy cd's in the first place. "I'm OK ..." Is one of my all time favorites. Overall an incredible album."
5 Stars, but 3 for this reissue

"Back in 1996 I purchased this album, and for the first time i heard this CD became immediately in one of my favorites punk albums. Don't Back Down is so good from beginning to end that you don't have to skip any song, the Asian Man version sense this and join a couple of the songs in the album (bad idea), the mixing it's also not as good as the first issue, Punk Rock Girls one of my favorite songs in the album sounds slightly different with more emphasis on the organ sound. In the positive of this re-issue i can say that Includes 3 more songs from their EP Bubble Gum Dreams currently out of print. If you want to replace this album in your collection (like me) buy the Lookout! RecordsDon't Back Down"
