This is the worlds first regional (city) "punk" & "New wave" compilation, on an Indipendent label aswell, BRAVO!, and Boston is the winner!. The label "punk" was only used in NY only at the time, Boston had seemingly punkier bands than NY!?, I'm not counting "The Best Of American Punk Rock Recorded Live At CBGB´s" also from 76', that's only claiming to be punk. This also shows that punk was played in America, before the name was coined, in other places than NY.

DMZ has perfected the 77 punk sound, but other bands plays punk too, but not as evident as DMZ. Willie Alexander & The Boom Boom Band song At the rat is punk, quite good too, but their other songs are not punk. The Boize "I want sex" has some Ramones elements in it so i guess it's punk enough, their other song is plain rock. The Real Kids songs are passing as punk too, barely. Unrelated, the first real punk songs was made in 73' by guess Who?
