Although a slew of other bands found greater mass exposure via MTV or the Warped Tour, make no mistake, Screeching Weasel was as important to the 90's punk boom as any band. If one needs proof, this is a great place to start. These 34 tracks cover nine albums, two non-album song compilations, and an EP, along with another compilation track. More importantly, they show a band that shined through simplicity. "Weasel Mania", a clever take on The Ramones' best-of title, crams 34 songs onto one disc, each tune hand picked by Ben Foster himself. This release is essential for both new listeners and longtime fans in search of an one disc with lots of longtime favorites.
