Didn't they release a single and an EP first?

-- Yeah, and they were from San Francisco, not Los Angeles. Hmm...

No, they released two singles (which were re-recorded for the album) and then Fresh Fruit. There was no EP before this.

Was this really the best known album? The religious right got really pissed at In God We Trust, Inc., and the PMRC went after Frankenchrist. So it's certainly not the most controversial.

First Hardcore Punk Record?[edit]

That's up for debate. It's certainly one of the first, but Bad Brains' "Black Dots" demo tracks came out two years before. However the 1982 ROIR tape is being touted as the "official" debut so I don't know if Black Dots should really count.

Indeed! The Hardcore Punk page doesn't even mention this album and barely mentions DK at all. I was surprised this was filed as the first hardcore punk record, I suggest this be taken out. TheAnarcat 08:11, 14 March 2006 (UTC)
First popular hardcore punk album, perhaps? And yeah, I'm not sure demo tracks should count. But I'm also not a music historian, either. — Soupisgoodfood 13:32, 29 May 2006 (UTC)
according to wikipedia, Black dots does hold this title, as it is listed as an album and as hardcore. Joeyramoney 00:43, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

I realize this discussion ended a few years ago, but for anybody curious, the first hardcore release is generally thought to be The Middle Class' Out of Vogue 7". The first 12" hardcore record would have probably been the Germs' (GI). --Tim010987 (talk) 17:29, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

John Greenway[edit]

The John Greenway to whom there's a link under track listing can't possibly be the correct one ?

White album?[edit]

This article does not inform that and why this album's vinyl was unusually white instead of the all common black. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:49, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Band logo on front cover[edit]

@IllaZilla Look at the picture, the band's logo is white on the original pressing.
