AllMusic Review by

This six-disc set of supposed punk rock classics, Shit Factory: Greatest Punk Swindle is indeed a swindle. While most of the bands that are featured are worthy of the tag "legendary" (Adicts, Exploited, Dead Kennedys, the Damned the Stranglers) the tracks that appear are poorly recorded live versions, re-recordings and demos. Do not be fooled by the bloody chests of Sid Vicious and Johnny Rotten on the cover, as this is not a middle finger raised to the establishment; it's a middle finger aimed directly at the listener.
