Discharge were a British punk band that embraced hardcore and merged it with the traditional British punk sound. They were hugely influential. Why? will be your jam if you can appreciate the no-production, recorded in a draughty shed distorted guitar sound, but it won't make you hate punk music any less if you're not already a convert. Average length of tracks is about ninety seconds. The CD reissue adds 12 more of them, bringing the total number of tracks to a respectable 22.
