The Hanson Brothers
This record isn't really rare or unknown or anything, I just came across it again for the first time in a few years and was quickly reminded how friggin incredible it is. In case you don't know, this is a Nomeansno side project that's simultaneously a tribute to The Ramones and the 1977 hockey film Slap Shot. In the 90s, there were a ton of bands trying to do straight up Ramones style punk rock, and none of them came close to The Hanson Brothers. Also, as a home brewer, I find "Blitzkrieg Hops" pretty funny, even though I'm normally against covers with silly lyric changes.
