Beginning your debut album with a song about killing children makes a statement — which is just what Adolescents did with their trailblazing debut. On the O.C. group’s first and only record with their original lineup, these teens helped define the bratty SoCal punk sound that would be replicated endlessly thereafter (see Blink-182, Rancid, the Offspring, et al). In addition to the crucial sing-along “Amoeba,” the LP is packed with infectious snottiness and surprisingly poetic lines like “history's recorded in a clutter on the floor.” Eli Enis
