Might I suggest Two Things At Once?

Oh: And if you haven't bought the ALL CD, buy it. It's got a Descendents live CD with it.

ALL - Mass Nerder is the only CD that you need.

MILO GOES TO COLLEGE!

Best descendents record by far.

Problematic and Mass Nerder are great ALL albums. Although I prefer the former out of the two.

I agree with Fuzzy. Mass Nerder is where it's at.

Milo Goes To College (included in Two Things At Once) and I Don't Want To Grow Up are my two favorite Descendents releases. Somery is a pretty good best of, as well.

The people on this board should be ashamed of themselves. Seriously. The man asks about the Descendents and you give him advice about ALL. That's like, "Is the Clash any good?", "Oh yeah, check out Big Audio Dynamite!"

"Milo Goes To College" and "I Don't Want To Grow Up" are pretty essential. "Somery" might be a good place to start too.

For those that missed the post on indiehq.com about this, I though it was interesting that "Everything Sucks" was originally recorded as an ALL album with Chad singing and everything.

"Somery" is definitely a good intro.

you guys are stupid. Allroy's Revenge is the best ALL record.

I just hate that 80's reverb production

then followed by Mass Nerder.

I find Everything sucks to be the best Descendents record. Then of course Milo goes to College and I Don't Want To Grow Up.

ALL has one good song, and it's called "Shreen." I used to have it on 10" then stupidly sold it and have never been able to find the song since. Can anyone help?

ALL has a perpetually underlooked record called "Percolater". It's different but i love it.

I just spent nearly five hours sleeping on the floor of the Columbus, OH airport. My brain is not quite up to speed.

However, I did share a flight from Oakland to Vegas with the singer from Panic! At The Disco's little sister. And yes, I have her Myspace.

I really like about half of Cool To Be You ('Merican, Nothing With You, Cool To Be You, Talking, Mass Nerder) but I really dislike the other half. This would have been a great EP methinks.

I can't remember which song it is, but the one with the line "they're gonna tell you that I'm not real" is one of the worst "punk" songs I've ever heard.

yeah I like about half as well, though the song you're talking about, "Maddie", has some insane time changes....

Not only is that song one of the most annoying ALL songs of ALL time, but the best ALL songs are mostly on Pummel, and in most cases music and lyrics written by Bill.
