their second release entitled "Hardcore 81"

Along with the Subhumans, D.O.A. were, and are still, Canada's most powerful punk band! On this album, D.O.A. was: Randy Rampage (also of Canadian speed-metallers Annhilator!) - Bass & Vocals, Chuck Biscuits (also of Samhain, Black Flag, Social Distortion, Danzig, Circle Jerks and so many others!)- Drums, guitar and vocals, Dave Gregg - Guitar and vocals, Joey S**thead - Guitar and vocals. Tracy Marks plays piano on Unknown.

This album was originally released on the legendary Vancouver Label Friends Records, which was VERY D.I.Y. cause they re-used surplus record jackets they obtained from other record labels.

Thirty-three years ago , D.O.A.’s sophomore full-length Hardcore ’81 became the namesake for its own genre. D.O.A. didn’t invent hardcore punk—that was California’s The Middle Class — and they weren’t the most influential (Black Flag) or the soberest (SS Decontrol) or the most bat-shit bananas (Flipper) or my favourite (Negative Approach). They were the most Canadian, and the fact some goofy stoners from Vancouver quasi-officially christened the genre should be a humongous B.C. Bud grow-op-sized point of hardcore hoser pride. To this day, plaid-happy Nardwuar can’t go an interview or radio show without slipping in a D.O.A. reference and singer Joey “Shithead” Keithley remains a persisting dirty blonde-haired blink on the B.C. politics radar.

Stand-outs like “Slumlord” and “I Don’t Give A Shit” have less-than-lofty lyrical subject matter, like, “Slumlord, my overlord,” my favourite three words off the entire album. Members of D.O.A. and friends spent a lot of time back in thee olde days living in the slum-kingdom of Vancouver’s downtown east-end. And slumlords are lording over Canadian punks to this day,
