The Young And The Useless

The Young and the Useless 7" Real Men Don't Floss (their only record I know of) is a good example of the kind of record that you probably couldn't give away when it came out in 1982 that collectors will now pay $150 for. Is it the scarcity of the pressing? The fact that it contains a future Beastie Boy? The desire to own a complete set of early NYHC? For me, I think its a great example of what early hardcore was based on- the egalitarian notion that a bunch of kids can get together and make the music they want DIY style-
Young And Useless
The Wave
Home Boy
Rise And Shine
Funky Music

Okay, I just realized one of the other sites wrote this record up a lot better than I was going to, but I'm lazy so I'm not changing it.
