Ok, here goes. Everybody add 1 album to this list. The album has to be an album that you feel is absolutely necessary to own/have downloaded/ know by heart and why. I'll start it off.

Kid Dynamite - Shorter Faster Louder.
Why? - Because this is album is staright up in your face punk rock. The musicianship is nothing fancy or flashy, just agressive chord progression played at breakneck speed. Jason Shevchuck's voice is perfect for the music; a throaty growl that comes at you fast and hits you hard, and his vocals are just beautiful.
Stand-out Tracks - Death & Taxes, Gate 68, Rufus Wants a Hug, Got A Minute?

Keep 'em coming people. Let's try to get 100 Essential Punk Albums without any repeats.

I know a lot of people hate on Tim Armstrong, but I've got to go with:

Rancid - And Out Come the Wolves...

stand out tracks: Ruby Soho, Roots Radical, Listed M.I.A., Journey to the End of East Bay

Just a great album in my opinion. Catchy as hell, fast, and fun.

the buzzcocks - singles going steady

the buzzcocks are semi underrated in my opinion, and this is a good introduction to most of their better work.

edit: i forgot to put the stand out tracks!! in my opinion they are Ever Fallen In Love, Harmony In My Head, and What Do I Get?
