Good point.

As usual there's a bunch of shit that whilst good, shouldn't really be there. Talking Heads for example.
'I Like It When You Die' is the fourth album by American grindcore band Anal Cunt. The album was originally titled You're Gay, and the album cover was going to contain a mirror, but this idea was later changed

Deal.

Smacks of music writers trying to show off their incredible knowledge of proto and fringe shit. That Black Randy album rules, but there's a hundred other releases more deserving of a spot. To not include any DKs at all is fuckin retarded. And they fucked up and chose the wrong Red Cross record.

P.S. Where's the missing 11 picks? Maybe DKs was in there. Nice editing.

Why does it jump from 23 to 35?

i reckon! It is Dead Kennedys 3rd best album after all. They should all be on there.

Surprisingly good list from an unexpected source. Isn't Uncut like one of those kinda classic rock magazines?

Good call on Dictators at no. 1, few things to check out too. Black Randy & the Metrosquad sounds interesting.

It appears to be in chronological order.

The Black Randy record is alright, it's no "Trouble at the Cup" though.

Solid list overall. But I do think in this day and age we can include albums recorded back then that weren't released until later (Misfits, Consumers, Death).
