First-ever vinyl reissue for this seminal compilation of early California Hardcore Punk, originally issued on the New Underground label in 1983. Featuring such names as the Germs, Minutemen, Sin 34, Shattered Faith along with more obscure, experimental ones as Doo-Dooettes, Modern Torture, and Tone Deaf. Artwork by Raymond Pettibon. "Once you listen to the bands on Life Is Ugly So Why Not Kill Yourself, and the other two volumes: Life Is Beautiful So Why Not Eat Health Foods and Life Is Boring So Why Not Steal This Record, the listener will agree that these are some of the best punk compilations of their time. No punk record collection is complete without copies of these albums, and it is amazing how time has forgotten and overlooked the impact and important piece of punk music history they are a part of. Now, thanks to Radiation Records, all three Life Is record compilations by New Underground Records are being re-released. Almost 40 years after their initial release, the Life Is compilations are the perfect soundtrack for the chaotic world we are currently living in." - Susan Swear.
