dear julia/ap.net staff, some of your picks are dead-on, although I think you've overlooked too many obvious choices and went with deeper cuts that are a bit too obscure to be considered an "absolute classic" by my definition.
my list would likely have included something from Green Day for example. Like "dookie" or even "american idiot" if you want to go new school. i think Saves the Day "through being cool" is painfully absent from this list. NOFX "punk in drublic" should also probably be on there, along with Bad Religion "suffer" or even "stranger than fiction". No Operation Ivy?
really, you should have done absolute 100. in my opinion. the list is just too damn short, and i could never, in good faith, recoomend Propaghandi to someone over Social Distortion, Lagwagon, Bad Religion, NOFX, Rancid, etc., all of which have made stronger and more important albums than "today's empires tomorrows ashes". IMHFO.
IMO Today's Empire Tomorrow's Ashes is leaps and bounds better than all of those
