Pretty bad ass. I love that the band has made it this far. But I'm not about drop 275 big ones on this.

One of the dumbest vinyl ideas I've seen in a long time. Dividing up your albums in 7"s? What a pain-in-the-ass way to listen to them, if you're even buying these to listen to them at all.

I gotta agree with this to a point. It's a badass set for what it is, but I wouldn't want to go through, like, 10 7"s just to listen to Wolves.

Indestructible holds some of my very earliest memories of music. My sister begged my parents to buy it for her and they didn't want to because it had one of those "Parental Advisory" stickers on it. I was like seven years old and we used to listen to it like nonstop. Thinking about it now, I owe a lot to that album.

Years later we got Let the Dominoes Fall and we couldn't even make it through the whole thing. What a world.

It's just supposed to be a cool collector's item. It's not like the 12" records are rare or anything like that, I think all of them are easy to order online right now if you want them.

Completely unnecessary.

Rancid is cool, but this boxset is silly.

Crazy set

If they wanted to come up with a cool collector's item, I think they could've produced something other than 2,000 sets of 46 7"s. That's nearly 100,000 7"s.

92 sides of 7"s is stupid.



Alex DiVincenzo 10/09/12 02:44 PM

This is cool

quoted for truth and for tremendous usage of that gif.

That is a thick mound of wax.

VictoriaS 10/09/12 08:09 PM

And I thought the price on Nofx's box set was too much...not cheap like punk music these days

3GunGaz 10/09/12 10:32 PM

Looks amazing - bit too much for me though, especially when it's all on 7"s. Aesthetically great but not practical if you want to listen to it!

mrnubnub 10/09/12 11:30 PM

So fucking stupid.

Other way around.

I like it. Also, did anyone else see that one of the sets comes with a baseball bat?
