Top 10 NYHC EP's of All Time

Justified Arrogance loves NYHC. This is one of the more passe observations that can be made about this blog as time goes on. There could be two separate discussions made on best LPs ever and best demos (which equates to an academic dogfight). This list is for the top 10 EPs to ever come out of New York City. Special thanks to Jacob Duarte (Dress Code / The Pose / Narrow Head), Jose Mora (Gag / White Wards / Combat Knife / Mongrel), Sean Holland (Neutral Accents Zine), Jesse Gasface (No Parole / Criminal Intent) for consulting with the formation of this list.

Honorable Mentions:

Breakdown - Blacklisted
Confusion - Taste of Hate
Crippled Youth - Join The Fight
The Mob - Step Forward
Underdog - Underdog
Beastie Boys - Polly Wog Stew
Stimulators - Loud Fast Rules
Burn - Burn
Sheer Terror - Fall From Grace
Warzone - Lower East Side Crew
Side By Side - You're Only Young Once
Urban Waste - Urban Waste
Heart Attack - God Is Dead
Supertouch - What Did We Learn
Sick of It All - Sick of It All
Crown Of Thornz - Train Yard Blues
Alone In A Crowd - Alone In A Crowd
Citizen's Arrest - A Light In The Darkness

10. Straight Ahead - Breakaway

9. Judge - New York Crew

8. Madball - Ball of Destruction

7. Youth of Today - Can't Close My Eyes

6. Outburst - Miles To Go

5. Antidote - Thou Shalt Not Kill

4. Cause For Alarm - Cause For Alarm

3. Life's Blood - Defiance

2. The Abused - Loud And Clear

1. Agnostic Front - United Blood


  1. This is a cool list. It would be interesting to make top ten NYC HC demos and especially LPs because I think that it is a much bigger chalenge to make a perfect hardcore punk LP than EP.

  2. Good list, surprised GB s/t 7" is not mentioned at all. And Reagan Youth "Youth Anthems for the New Order" would fit in nicely in the top 10 with all the other old school shit.

    Would also be interested in a top 10 LP list.

  3. Kill all the douchebags and hipsters NOW !!!

  4. Killing Time baby I'd put that above anyone but AF and I'd put Madball Dropping Many Suckers on that above most of those as well. I know a lot of people hate on Rick Healy but that 25 ta Life 7" was better than many of those and deseves to be on there. Fahrenheit 451 and District 9 and definitely Bulldoze
