v/a 20 YEARS OF DISCHORD

Initially this release was going to be a double CD featuring one song from every band (50) on the label, but that idea grew to include a 134 page booklet that would include photos and text about each of the bands and the history of the label. Later, a 3rd CD was added, this one featuring unreleased or rare material from the Dischord vaults, as well as some CDR video files of archival footage of performances by TEEN IDLES, UNTOUCHABLES, S.O.A., FAITH, VOID and DEADLINE.
