Back around the "Years of Decay" album, I read an interview with Blitz Ellsworth about how they'd recorded a Ramones cover that they were going to use later on. As a Ramones fan AND an Overkill fan, I waited..and waited..and waited... and over a decade later it finally gets released on this decent covers collection. Gotta love the Deep Purple and Manowar covers too! Overkill have good taste in influences, although three Sabbath tunes is a BIT much...

Ain't Nothin' to Do is a cover of DEAD BOYS, not DEAD KENNEDYS. A good album, mixes the rock, punk & heavy influences.

ok first of all I'm fucking sick of cover albums they are being done to death! with that said this is a very fine album for what it is The covers of Tyrant and Space truckin are Incredible I just really hope that this cover album thing passes I'm sick to death of it
