Rancid

Roots, Radicals

Epitaph 86452

Released on March 2, 1995


$6.00
Buy

Released in Rancid's heyday, the Roots Radicals single came out between the group's seminal Let's Go and the nearly as engaging follow-up, ...And Out Come the Wolves. The leadoff title track is easily one of the group's best songs to date and, compared to the version on the album that followed it, this take of "Roots Radicals" is a much more raw and treble-tinged interpretation that surpasses later incarnations. The vocal call to arms is a little bit clearer here as well, and it sounds like an almost entirely new take on Rancid's recording style, something the band would only continue to experiment with as its career leaned further toward a new sound. The second track, "I Wanna Riot," is another departure, a mid-tempo reggae/ska tune that bounces happily along with plenty of conflicting destructive sentiments and a slight good-time vibe. Rancid got much further out there with later records, but this brief effort shows the band's ability to blend styles as well as deliver catchy punk ditties.

Rancid? What needs to be said? You can't go wrong with Rancid. The version of Roots, Radical is a little raw... but not that different from AOCTW. I Wanna Riot is a great punk-ska song. This one is for the true fan. I needed it for my collection, and was not disappointed.

roots radicals has always been one of my favorite songs, i didn't know it was a different version on this one. it's pretty cool, i can't tell if the one on out come the wolves is better though...i wanna riot is such a good song. this disc is so worth getting. the CD itself looks really cool too.

This is a nice little CD single to have in your Rancid collection.I've always loved "Roots,Radicals" and "I Wanna Riot" so i really recommend this.Although there are only two songs the CD cover is really cool and so is the design on the CD.

Nice Rancid CD single with two rare songs, perfect for collectors or people who just really like Rancid (like me). For everyone else, you’d be better off just downloading the two songs... well unless you’re afraid that the RIAA will fuck you over and take all your cash for using KaZaA!
