AllMusic Review by

100% Pure Bollocks collects tracks from punk and proto-punk artists into a budget-priced box set. Acts as infamous as the Sex Pistols and Iggy Pop and as obscure as Splodge and the Varukers unite on this extensive compilation, which includes classics like Sham 69's "If The Kids Are United," the MC5's "Kick Out The Jams" and Stiff Little Fingers' "Suspect Device," as well as live versions of the Adverts' "Gary Gilmore's Eyes," The Damned's "New Rose" and Sid Vicious' "My Way." The Vibrators, Angelic Upstarts, the Runaways, New Model Army, the Adicts and the Only Ones (covering "Silent Night") are among the many, many punk groups documented in this thorough set.
