"The Punk o Rama series isn't ever one to disappoint, and this proves it. The second disc in the series, it's definatly the best. most well planned mixes out there. Why do I love this mix so much. I like it because it features two of my favorite songs "Perfect People" by Pennywise and "Code Blue" by TSOL. The album begins with the 34-second speed demon "Coffee Mug" by the legendary band The Descendents. Then it goes into an amazing group of songs from well knowns like NOFX, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Pennywise, TSOL, Rancid, and Bad Religion, but also features such unknowns as Poison Idea, Dead F**king Last (DFL), and SNFU. So pick up this album now. It's a classic."
THIS is punk!

"Awesome. This is a fabulous compilation from one of the most widely respected punk labels around: Epitaph.This CD is so cool, it almost doesn't feel like a comp - you can put this into your CD player and listen to the whole thing, just as you would with any album.This disc caters to all tastes in punk. It really delivers in terms of skate punk, with fabulous tunes such as SNFU's "Don't Have the Cow" and Pennywise's "Perfect People". In addition, there's Oi!/Street Punk sounding tunes, such as Rancid's "Sidekick" and TSOL's "Code Blue" (which is quite a disturbing, but all-too hilarious sarcasm-driven song). Oh yeah, and let's not forget Me First and the Gimme Gimmes' AWESOME remake of the classic tune, "Only the Good Die Young".If you like punk, give Punk O' Rama Vol. 2 a chance. Pick it up, and check it out! I really didn't even like punk all that much when I scooped this up off the shelf of Newbury Comics (all you Boston-area punx will know this place) but I LOVE it and can't get enough! Hey, you can't lose! It's only 4 bucks!"
Wholsome punk rock goodness

"I bought this one about 10 min after i had bought Vol. 6 sence i was driving from one record store to another. This one is pretty good, but saddly its kind of a tease today, seeing as many of the tracks are from albums that went out of print years ago. This one is probably one of the best out of the 10 Punk-O-Rama compilations so far. The only two that i would rate better would be vol. 1, and the somewhat rare and un heard of Vol. 2.1, which was a special deal at the 97 warped tour(looks the same only the moster on the cover is skateboarding, not urinating on a wall, and it has the Wapred Tour logos) 2.1 featured a slightly modified track list with stronger tracks from SNFU, Down By Law and Pennywise. Its worth the money youll spend if you ever see a copy in the used cd bin. Anyway, Punk-O-Rama 2 is a pretty good collection of punk from the 90s as well as the two 80s hardcore bands Poison Idea and DFL. If you want to sample a pretty broad spectum that is punk music, this is a good place to start, as it gives you not only some of today's vetran bands' older material, but some seriously old scool stuff too. also some of these tracks arent for those turned off by questionable subject matter...Namely the one TSOL track"
