A soundtrack for dreary beer-filled nights...

Something like you see in Small Town Punk, I spent high school locked into a place that was neither a small town or big city and WAY too far to access any kind of culture. Punk shows? Forget it. And of course, I was angry. What else was there to do about it but sit on the sidewalk and flick lit cigarettes at passing cars? (Okay, so they were just butts I flicked, cuz who the hell wanted to waste a full, good cigarette?)
Fast-forward to watching some TV late at night, wasted--USA network, Night Flight, and there is this movie that includes other punks, insulting each other, doing some damage to public property, getting drunk underage, and...stealing cars with alien corpses in the trunk? And whoa, who's that in the background? Black Flag? No, wait, no, Suicidal Tendencies? No way!
So this was it--the reason to find a little hope in life, because maybe someone actually got why you were angry and hopeless and wanted to do nothing but break things...and they had the musical taste to back it up. The Circle Jerks, Iggy Pop (one of his best songs EVER!), Suicidal, Flag, Fear. This is the perfect soundtrack not only for a wild movie but for throwing beer bottles at stop signs and hiding under your hoodie when the cops come by...
...but don't throw full beer bottles, of course. Granted, it may be Stroh's, or even generic, but don't waste the beer you scraped together quarters for, man...
The life of the repo man is intense!

"At the polar opposite of mind-bogglingly uncreative compilation soundtracks (see anything by Bruckheimer, you'll understand immediately), the Repo Man soundtrack stands out with an awesome collection of LA hardcore and punk songs. The Repo Man theme by Iggy Pop is simply awesome. All the songs are great. While TV Party by Black Flag is great, who can beat a Secret Agent Man cover by the Plugz? The album is creative, irreverant, and should be played very loud from a speeding car! Enjoy!"

"I first saw this movie on video almost 20 years ago, when I was an impressionable teenager. This film, along with Rock 'N' Roll High School, helped make me a teenage punk fan. The soundtrack album still holds up well. Fans of old school punk will want to check it out."
