The seventies sound was usually a snotty voice with three power chord songs. The Exploited brought on the new age of punk. They gave the go ahead for bands to scream and play fast and be agressive. I'm not going to say that the Exploited founded the eighties scene, they obviously didn't, black flag had been around since 77, but there sound was powerful and showed what punk could be, and definatly helped bring on the eighties scene.
Every Street punk band of today unseen, casualties, virus, cheap sex, krays, blanks 77, devotchkas, lower class brats basically recreated the exploited's sound in there own way. They may not be the fathers of punk but no question they are the fathers of street punk. I'm a big Exploited fan and I have all 8 studio recordings and a singles collection by Spitfire. However getting this second I got the Single collection by spitfire records first was kind of a big mistake.
If you get this album, highly recommended to get lyrics off the internet. The band start their mutation towards a heavier,cuasi-metal crossover,guitar sound is insanely dirty and intense,highly political lirycs,all against WAR!! Upper treble is virtually non existant on this record,so don't expect to hear any unless you can add them with a harmonics processor like mine! Format: MP3 Music. From a musical era long gone but still influences bands of today stands this brilliant release from The Exploited.

Accompanying the vocals, are the instruments, which burst like a meteor shower on a clear day- especially the frenetic drums and bass which dominate the pace of the album and add a lot to its untamed manner. The songs themselves and their arrangements are very varied compared to other hardcore punk albums.
On one side, you have the midpaced punk rock rebel anthems, and on the other side, you have the blasting almost-crossover songs Psycho , Rival Leaders. A very strong point of this album is the production.
It is exactly the opposite of polished, but every instrument is heard- and especially crunchy guitars and bass that dominate the album with their power.Let's start a war said Maggie one day Let's start a war said Maggie one day Let's start a war said Maggie one day You fight for your country You die for their gain Death and destruction all around Shops and houses are razed to the ground Burnt out houses empty shells Here on earth it's just a mortal hell Let's start a war said Maggie one day.
