"Descendents were one of the early L.A. punk bands, a pop-punk group with songs about girls, parents, and food. This CD is a compilation of some of the better songs from each of their albums. It's a great overview... if you haven't heard the Descendents before, this is a great place to start.I suspect that Blink 182, Offspring, and Down by Law all were influenced heavily by this band. Not to mention Green Day."Coolidge" is one of the best pop-punk songs ever. These guys had a great sense of humor; it's a shame they didn't stay in the same vein as Descendents for longer than they did.If you like any of the above listed bands, "Somery" is worth a listen.ken32"
Good place to start

"This "Best Of" by the Descendents is the best way to go if you're just finding out about the band, because it will give you a good chance to let you know if you like them or not. Descendents staples like "Silly Girl" and "Hope" are standouts, and within the 28 tracks, there's enough to pick and listen to, from their harder stuff to their poppier stuff. This is the closest to hearing the essence of the Descendents on one disc, and as it was my first CD of theirs, they're one of my fav bands, so I recommend this to anyone who has curiousity into what the Descendents were all about."
A great collection of songs, but...

"You'd be better off getting their entire discography. Seriously, they're ALL worth having.
Truth be told, this was my introduction to the early Descendents (I started with "Everything Sucks"), but I went out and after 5 years, had everything both the Descendents and ALL put out.
Everyone I've introduced to the Descendents, loved them.
They're my favorite band, and they should be yours too.
But If you're not sure, I'd say pick this up. If you love it, do yourself a favor, and get the rest of their discography."
