"One" (DIYFS; 2005)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Die Young is a gritty California glam band gone bad, opting to scream their heads off and denounce the vapid posturing while cranking out six tracks chock full of crossover appeal.
There's a strong sense of the influence of bands like Circle Jerks, Suicidal Tendencies, and Black Flag on songs like "What They Say," giving off a fuck the world mentality over scathing music and unearthly vocals. "One" displays a band hell-bent on taking the scene back, by any and all means, and starting with a solid yet catchy release laden with anthems to kick someone in the head to.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
