Way back in November 2019, it was announced that the Circle Jerks were going to reunite in 2020 for a number of shows to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their debut album Group Sex, and well, the 2020 dumpster fire killed that dream. So, here we are, ready to rock off 40 years, plus 2, of an absolutely phenomenal album!
Their debut album, Group Sex, from 1980, is considered a landmark of the hardcore punk genre, with AllMusic stating, "As such things go, it's tight, reasonably well played, the songs kinda sorta have hooks, and Keith Morris is a pretty good frontman, but if you're looking for nuance, you're pretty much out of luck. Then again, if you were looking for nuance in a Circle Jerks album, you've obviously been misinformed as to how this punk rock stuff works." The album is included in the book, 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
