Retro Mixtape: Best of Punk

Here is a Retro Mixtape I did when I did my Disaster Fanzine stuff. This was in July 2006, which made me 17 years old. I do like this Mixtape, and if you like Punk music I'd recommend you look at the list. If you think there are other songs that are missing by all means comment at the bottom of the blog and recommend your own!

Mixtape: Punk

A Mixtape is a playlist of a certain genre, band or era. The list is generally 80 minutes long, the same length of a blank CD, with further recommendations if some of the songs aren’t to your taste. Remember kids, downloading is wrong! Here is a list of The Best of Punk, and no that is not Green Day, The Offspring or Blink-182 but pure 1970’s and 80’s Punk. We’ve added some Post-Punk and New Wave in there too, aren’t I nice! So here is a recommended list for your Spiked or Mohican-bearing friends! 80 minutes of pure punk bliss!
