4. Sick Of It All’s Blood Sweat and No Tears (1989)

It was different and had a cool energy to it. Like Brightside, you could hear the influences, but it was its own thing. You can’t deny that record, and it’s apparent because they went on to become one of the biggest New York hardcore bands of all time.

Favorite Track: I love “Clobberin’ Time” and “Injustice System!” It’s another record that had a lot of cool tracks.
