AllMusic Review by

Stranglehold: Punk Rock Across America samples the more adolescent side of the genre, drawing most of its selections from tuneful pop-punksters with goofy, juvenile senses of humor (bands like the White Trash Debutantes, the Bulemics [sic], Shitloads of Fuckall, the Fucking Assholes, etc.). There aren't really any big names here, but those who like this particular brand of punk-rock revival will find this compilation hugely entertaining; those who don't may find themselves longing for the old-school activism of the Clash or Dead Kennedys.
