8. I Believe I’ll Have Another Beer (Have Another Beer with Fear, 1995)

“I’ve been listening to this offering from FEAR for several years, and I find it to be a very catchy punk rock album. Some people have accused Lee Ving of being a racist, a misygonist, and a NAZI sympathizer. Without question, he is an ascerbic individual.”

7. Have a Beer With Fear (More Beer, 1985)

“Every song on this record kicks ass. This album probably beats the first one. These guys’ secret to success is they don’t give a fuck about anything but drinking and rocking out. Every track is a goddam punk anthem.”

6. Legalize Drugs (Have Another Beer with Fear, 1995)

“Their only genuine political song, i believe.. if realized it would not just have saved billions ($) and created a more open society but probably also would have saved many more lives than it would have cost.”

5. Fuck You Let’s Rodeo (Have Another Beer with Fear, 1995)

“An energetic and fun album from one of the seminal hardcore punk bands. Their older stuff is supposedly their best, but I like this one a lot. _Have Another Beer With Fear_ continues Fear’s trademark penchant for beer and political incorrectness.”

4. Public Hangings (Have Another Beer with Fear, 1995)

“One of the best American bands of all time! Maybe my favorite FEAR album, this and the first are just a MUST for any beer drinking American! Lee Ving is awesome.”

3. We Destroy the Family (The Record, 1982)

“There is no doubt that this is one of the quintessential punk albums and in my opinion and anyone who deems it anything but are simply jealous that Ving and company had the musical prowess to out-punk the rest by creating layers of snarling anger and discontent and actually create something equally brilliant on a musical level.”

2. New York’s Alright If You Like Saxophones (The Record, 1982)

“Well, here it is the legendary record from Fear. This album is probably one of the most offensive albums that someone can own, espically with madman Lee Ving on vocals, it’s definitely a must own, and it’s not disappointing at all.”

1. I Don’t Care About You (The Decline of Western Civilization, 1981)

“Not played at an overly frenetic pace, but my God does this song have energy! The most played song on my computer. I love it when they perform this on ‘The Decline Of Western Civilization’ and Lee smiles and raises his eyebrows when he says “Ain’t he cute?”. I don’t care what kind of person Lee was, but he was an excellent front-man.”
