For those of you in the giving mood; MRR is giving out a thank you this month to shitworkers and subscribers alike and offering a few webstore specials! Check it out:


To start, after much anticipation we have finally made Welcome to 1984 available as an MP3 download through our webstore! It’s just $7.00 to download this historic compilation featuring classic worldwide talent such as the STALIN, TERVEET KÄDET, the CRUCIFUCKS, N.O.T.A., RAW POWER, OLHO SECO, R.I.P., RATTUS, B.G.K. and more!

In the international spirit, we’ve also slashed magazine prices around the globe! Thanks to some postal discounts we were able to wrangle from the USPS, we’ve been able to slash the international postpaid price from $11 to $7.50 on new issues (and from $10 to $6.50 on back issues). Furthermore, we’re running a huge sale on international subscriptions; subscribers outside of the US and Canada save 25% on new subscriptions and renewals.

We also have a special offer going just through the month of December: you can pick up a subscription for yourself and get another subscription for a friend at half the price! Our gift subscription sale ends 12/31/15, so get on it before time runs out!

Lastly, we’re running another record sale: you can buy three “MRR Presents” releases for $35 postpaid in the US! This deal is also running for a limited time only, so grab yours before it’s too late.

25th anniversary reissue of the
Welcome to 1984 compilation LP


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.

25 songs recorded in 1983, nearly all previously unreleased. A blazing mix of Black Flag and early DRI showcasing a relatively unknown American hardcore band at its peak.

“You need this BAAAADDD! If this was released as an LP back in 1983 it would’ve been a classic up there with all the greats like Jerry’s Kids, Scream, F.U.’s, Circle Jerks and then you fill in the blanks.”Killed By Death Records (read the full review here)
