boil, boil, boil over boilerman

I'm not gonna patronize my imaginary readers by explaining who The Minutemen were, what their impact was and is like or the story of D. Boon's death. Everyone knows. No point. So I'll just post this tribute compilation without saying much besides that it was released by Little Brother Records and that you can read the full story on it, by the guy who actually put it together and released it here(Little Brother Records blogspot). There are a lot of really great covers on here and some stinkers, you know, like every tribute album ever. But this one is better simply because these are Minutemen covers. If you don't like The Minutemen then don't bother listening to this or really listening to rock and roll at all. What's wrong with you?
