25th anniversary reissue of the
Welcome to 1984 compilation LP

1984front-PC-wBorder-sm

Maximum Rocknroll is proud to reissue of the seminal Welcome to 1984 compilation LP. Welcome to 1984 was one of the very first — and perhaps best — compilations to document the first wave of international hardcore. This LP features legendary bands from all over the globe including Terveet Kädet (Finland), BGK (Netherlands), The Stalin (Japan), Olho Seco (Brazil), Raw Power (Italy), Rattus (Finland), RIP (Spain), and many more. 23 bands in all, from 17 different countries!

“… this LP covers the scene more as it ‘should be’ — more political with a spirit of independence and resistance in every cut.” —Al Flipside, from Flipside #43, 1984

Check out Felix Havoc’s write-up about it HERE.

Welcome to 1984 is out of print, but MP3 downloads of this LP and other MRR classics are available HERE.
