The Punch Line is the first 12-inch studio album and third record release by influential American punk rock band Minutemen, and the fourth-ever release from SST Records. After their previous release, Paranoid Time, sold out its 300-copy pressing, Greg Ginn invited the band to record another album. Less than half the length of most LPs, the total playing time for all 18 songs is a mere 15 minutes.

The Punch Line ‎(CD, Album, RE). SST Records. SST CD 004. US. 1992. This is one of my top records. The fusion of funk, jazz, punk and anger is one of the best combinations that exists. Hints to enjoy this record, try to get into the abrasive but enjoyable music, and have a lyric sheet handy because you will need it to fully understand these songs. Reply Notify me Helpful.

The Minutemen may have come out of the same California hardcore scene that produced Black Flag, Circle Jerks, and Fear, but they not only bore little resemblance to their West Coast contemporaries, they didn't sound much like anyone else in American rock at that time

The Minutemen's The Punch Line is a solid debut album, and I think that things only got better from here, which could be a con for this album because when compared to later albums, it seems less. The chemistry between the band members is excellent and they show a nice blend between various musical styles and tempos. Still, the Minutemen have left their mark on punk culture and influenced many bands to follow. This album, The Punch Line, is an great album with so much energy and intensity, even if it's too short. Minutemen: D Boon: Vocals/Guitar Mike Watt: Vocals/Bass George Hurley: Drums.

  • Listening to The Punch Line, Minutemen's debut, it's hard to feel this would have been heralded as one of the alternative bands of the 80's. The music may be speedy, but it’s not even definable Punk: instead, it’s jangly and complex, and it makes the band seem like The Byrds during an epileptic seizure. It lasts barely a quarter of an hour. Repetitive and hardly interesting.Highlights:"The Struggle", "Warfare".
