How the fuck did I manage to NOT post this yet? Really? One year, seven months, and two weeks into the existence of Illogical Contraption and I've NEVER gotten around to posting Virus 100, one of the cornerstonesof my musical upbringing? Really? Fuck I suck.
So here's the basic story: Jello Biafra, to commemorate the 100th release of Alternative Records, rounds up a bunch of awesome bands and forces them, at gunpoint, to record covers of Dead Kennedys songs. The results are a little mixed (high points are Napalm Death, Nomeansno, Alice Donut, and Sepultura), but overall very satisfying and varied. This album was a crucial element in the ongoing soundtrack to my high school years. Nostalgia mixed with shred mixed with humor mixed with a dash of shame (I'm looking at you, Franti).

This is worth having for the Nomeansno track ALONE!! Good call!

NMN owns this. I've always liked the weird Kramer song too.

It's true, NMN wins this one, followed in a distant second by Sepultura.
