AllMusic Review by

Faster & Louder: Hardcore Punk, Vol. 1 overlooks a handful of classic singles in favor of several novelties and rarities, yet the 17-track collection remains a first-rate introduction to hardcore, featuring two absolute classics in the Dead Kennedys' "Holiday in Cambodia" and Bad Brains' "Pay to Cum," plus cuts from such major figures as the Circle Jerks, Suicidal Tendencies, Angry Samoans, Meatmen, Government Issue and Husker Du.
