You know a lot has changed when movie soundtracks are filled with contemporary punk rock. And though the genre is not what it once was, this 22-songer is one of the better compilations of what it still is, since it insists on the more prominent groups who can play and write, such as Down by Law, Pennywise, Guttermouth, Rollins Band, Ten Foot Pole, AFI, Voodoo Glow Skulls (good variety), and the real punk-pop comer, MXPX. Best of all, there's a terrific Descendents track, "Lucky," that was left off their comeback LP, Everything Sucks -- it's an English B-side from the I'm the One single.
