  • The second disc contains a continuation of the mid-80s songs, every song off GG’s 1991 release with ANTiSEEN, “Murder Junkies”, and some interesting spoken word pieces scattered throughout
  • The Murder Junkies songs seem to be slowed down a little, with the chords in a couple songs ( Murder For The Mission and I Love Nothing ) being almost an entire step down
  • In my opinion they actually sound a little better like this
  • A 50 song, two disc compilation that cherry picks some of the greatest GG Allin songs ever released, Rock N Roll Terrorist is by far the best GG compilation I've ever come across

      In 1999, “Rock N Roll Terrorist”, yet another GG Allin compilation, was released. Consisting of 50 tracks on two discs, this album holds some of GG’s greatest gems from the mid-80s and the early 90s, completely skipping the garbage that dominated his late 80s releases. While it contains the favorites from these times, it contains the obscure, must-hear songs that make it a must-have record for the GG Allin collector and fan.

      The first disc consists entirely of material released in the mid-80s, after The Jabbers; many of which were on GG’s 1983 release “E.M.F.”, a very rare record that is one of his greatest. The remaining songs are off various other releases that are hard to come by as well. It contains favorites, such as “Bite It You Scum”, “Sluts In The City”, and “Scumfuc Tradition”,


      while containing a few good rarities and most of “E.M.F.”. Being from the mid-80s, the quality of the songs and GG’s vocal performance are still very high. It captures the time in his career when his music was closer to crust than pop punk, while maintaining a high pitched voice- such a perfect combination that gave his music a sound that cannot be matched by any other time in his career. The recording quality hasn’t gone down, either. It sounds like a normal punk record of the day- very raw, probably recorded live, not well mixed (if mixed at all), but still very listenable. These songs also mark the beginning of his extremely absurd, offensive, and downright disgusting lyrics that completely dominated almost every song afterward. The album compiles the greatest songs from GG’s prime era onto ...

      • one disc, which makes it a must-listen.

        The second disc contains a continuation of the mid-80s songs, every song off GG’s 1991 release with ANTiSEEN, “Murder Junkies”, and some interesting spoken word pieces scattered throughout. This disc starts with the rest of the 80s tracks the compiler wanted to put on the album, which hold the quality and greatness of the first disc. The “Murder Junkies” songs seem to be slowed down a little, with the chords in a couple songs (”Murder For The Mission” and “I Love Nothing”) being almost an entire step down. In my opinion they actually sound a little better like this. They are the same recordings, but they sound like a record playing a little slower. May be an error in the compilation’s production. The spoken word pieces are filled with anger

        and are quite interesting to hear. The things he says in them left me speechless. All in all, the second disc isn’t as good as the first, but it is still awesome.

        If you are looking for a compilation that eliminates the garbage and gives you some of GG Allin’s prime material from the hard-to-come-by mid 80’s era, “Rock N Roll Terrorist” is a must-have. It contains absolutely nothing from his Jabbers days, the late 80s, or after 1991, and is primarily centered around the mid 80s. It contains almost the entire “E.M.F.” album, “Murder Junkies” in its entirety, and some other epic releases of the era. A 50 song, two disc compilation that cherry picks some of the greatest GG Allin songs ever released, “Rock N Roll Terrorist” is by far the best GG compilation I’ve ever come across.
