℗ 2004 Negative Progression Records

Bait and switch in the classic sense. This is offered to the masses that might not identify the true and original artists, and after being disappointed by the purchase....then it’s too late and they have done their job of getting ones hard earned money. There are many, many Original golden oldies albums being offered to settle for this nonsense....Be aware...,

There are only a couple of good songs, the rest are yelling and screening of hard rock style, not the oldies feeling that was of the original songs. Sample them first before buying. I always sample, but not this time. BIG REGRET.

Bought in a hurry thinking it was real oldies, not alternative remake cover. If that’s your thing then you may like this, but I was interested in the real thing.

Say true

Bought and listened to this farce of fake oldies. Bad replication of some great songs. Very bad. I would like to get my money back.

Thanks for butchering our classics! All of you, "artists" should be ashamed.

I can understand how some people would give it 1 star if you are on the hunt for some swell Motown or Dick Clark era rock n roll. But this is a punk record, released on a punk label, of punk bands covering oldies tunes. So maybe just admit you didn't research the album before purchasing it, instead of complaining how these bands ruined the songs. Many pop artists today have ruined what I consider classics, but I'm not going to go trash their record without understanding what it is or what they were trying to do. So if you are into 90's era punks bands having fun with some great songs from the mid century, this album is for you.

I just don't know what to say... Apple shouldn't let people get taken like this. When I want Oldies I want oldies they know what I mean. I can't believed they would even let this garbage into the Oldies search engine!!!!!! Step up your game guys!! Just wasted 10 dollars!!!

JCW RED

I like this type of stuff (punk cover of classics), and most of the songs on this album are fairly solid.

Rapido Delgado

Quit your complaining! This is a compilation album. Listen to the samples before you buy it. Duh! I love oldies as much as anybody- They remind me of riding in the back seat of my parents car back in the good ol' days. ...but I bleed punk rock. These are some great underrated bands doing their own take on songs that obviously had some sort of influence.

Oldies critic

YECK Worst compilation of oldies I Have ever heard. Should not be in the oldies section. I am sorry I ever purchased the album.Should be reimbursed.Buyer beware.Read the reviews.rate as 0 not 1

Bev Stamper

Horrible music, wish I would've read the reviews, before buying

Jetboy45

Absolutely the biggest piece of garbage i ever listened to. I deleted it after the first 3 songs. this thing should be banned in all states

Smida89

someone took amazing oldie songs and basically destroyed them. dont try to cover a song that is already perfect as is. that also goes for artists who try to do Beatle covers....just leave them alone you cant do a Beatle song better than the Beatles.

Charles R

I can't believe this junk is even for sale. They dont have an option for a negative rating, so one star it is.

ZaeLove

WHO WAS THE IDIOT WHO PUT THIS ON ITUNES?? I WAS EXCITED OVER NOTHING!!

MrRockNRollNo1

NEGATIVE PROGRESSION RECORDS, the shoes sure fits! Don't even bother presenting remakes, etc, all you're doing is INSULTING MY INTELLIGENCE! If this is all you can put together, then GET OUT OF THE RECORD BUSINESS! I-tunes should let us rate 0 and negative numbers for some of the Garbage!

señorgreenpills

the singing is especially fail. (LOOK FOR THE ORIGINALS!) and by the way: all of these bands are POP punk —which already sucks— so don't say "if you don't like punk rock: don't buy it." (it gives legit punk a bad name).

rpowers7

Out of the entire CD I could only handle listening to 3 of the songs. The rest I deleted off my library b/c they were so ear piercingly terrible I didn't want to risk being subjected to them again. A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!!! They have butchered some great old tunes and made an attempt to convert them to heavy metal. So not okay! Save your money and your sanity DON'T BUY THIS!!

SET-FO

The worst purchase I have ever made!

Veeanna

This Is Terrible I Hope The Real Artists Never Hear This... The Originals Are SOO Much Better.

muzak lover

These are awful cover songs of great old time Rock & Roll music and this album should be considered toxic waste.

muchomusic

you people need to shut up .. if you dont like it dont buy it! Great Band and Good Covers. ps>all the crappy reviews are from people who dont like punk rock

FVT102

I WANT MY MONEY BACK! Very misleading by the song titles. Thought it was the original oldies but goodies. Where did they get the nerve to think of trying to ruin the oldies like this.

kv36kx

Very disapointed on this as they are not orignal like suggested, would never suggest this to anyone,

Mardawg2

Do yourself a favor, do not even listen to this crappy album!

pdxphillyfan

Best punk cover album ever!I had this album back in the day when it first came out.True punk fans will love it!

kgeorge72

Not very good at all, songs are not sung like they should be, not original!

Punk Rock Doo-Wop

Not to mention that to a young punker, this album could serve as a window into the original artists' work. What's wrong with that, huh?

Pegpeters

So very disappointed in this purchase. I thought it would sound like the "Oldies", but this is a bunch of JUNK. Wish I could have heard a sample before I bought, now I don't even want to download the rest of them. What a waste! I won't make this mistake again!

HORRIBLE

ABSOLUTELY THE WORST

Rose's tunes

How could people turn such good music into filth. The hits like Bee-Bop-A-Lula, Runaround Sue, and Blue Moon are turned into disasterous music.Oldies But Goodies ( turned into complete crap ) should be the title for this cd. It kind of makes me cry that people would do that to pure music. You people make me sick :-(!

Digital Diary

Punk bands should be banned from doing covers!!!!! The original songs were master pieces and these songs don't do the orginal songs and artists any justice.

trapper61

The only thing good about this album is the artwork. This is a double load of crud!!!!

Unsatisfied Customer

These are horrible remixes of the classic songs! "Wonderful World" sounds nothing like the orignal. I am very upset. Bring back the oldies!!

DEBZEE

LOOKING FOR A GOOD OLDIES ALBUM?? THIS IS NOT IT?? DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. I DIDN'T PAY ENOUGH ATTENTION TO SEE IT WASN'T ORIGINAL ARTISTS! SOME SONGS ARE NOT RECOGNIZABLE.

mellie0704

SOUNDS LIKE AMERICAN IDOL REJECTS

thebeatlesrme

These wonderful songs are RUINED!!!!!!! I would never recomend this cd to anyone!!!!!! If i could i wouldn't rate it!!!!!!! Why would anyone do this??

Joren Myers

These are actually good songs, especially "Blue Moon', "Mr. Sandman", and "Johnny B. Goode". Don't rate this CD badly simply because you liked the originals better, these are still good covers.

bigray 2

Very miss leading please read the fine print not the song tittle i bought this junk because i thought it wall 50 and 60s music i was very very disapointed

KingdomHearts535

Okay... I understand that you might really really hate this cuz it might "ruin" the song for you. But come on people... did you even listen to leader of the pack?! I litterally burst out laughing. It's all in good fun! I'm not sure if I would BUY these songs but I think its hilarious and a great laugh!

Roxane's iTunes

I love "oldies" but these songs should have been left to the original artists. I would never purchase this "knock off" music again. Sorry I purchased this one.

1 Critic

If the Original Artists could hear this they'd SUE!!!!!!! Bring back the ORIGINALS

wrenarf

Ok, obviously, if you don't like the punk/rock/indie style music, you aren't going to like this CD. The originals were good, so are these! They're purely different which is fine by me! These are some great artists, just having fun with some classics. Take it lightly, and enjoy the sillyness of it all!

fragglerocker

some of these are done are really well. like Oh Boy and Be My Baby. however i wanted to point out Runaround Sue was done by Dion not Del Shannon.

Dante Alighieri

Great album for all the cover song fans out there. Big fan of the 1950's genre, but I also like more recent indie/alternative bands, so this is right on the mark. My top pick for songs inculde songs #1, 3, and 4. Definatly worth the 10 bucks.
