#82. Value Pac
Value Pac

Release Date: August 30, 1996

The first wave of Tooth & Nail bands featured a bunch of scrappy punk bands (Ghoti Hook, MxPx, Plankeye) that offered something that had not previously existed in the CCM universe before. The raw passion and youthful verver of Value Pac's first outing (either known as the self-titled album or Down and Out) starts off with the exuberant "Graduation Day" and never lets up the tempo or energy. You can feel the end of high school and the beginning of something new in every track here. "Happy Star" might be the first true punk rock worship tune, and "Sunday Christian" is all righteous fury at the right thing (hypocrisy). The band would go on to release the more polished and mature Jalapeño a year later, but it's the scrappy debut that feels like a time capsule of a certain time out on the west coast.
