Are hardcore bands meant to have a string section? Are they allowed to write four-act rock operas? Those are questions that Toronto's F****d Up don't care to answer—and it makes them the most compelling hardcore band around. As likely to throw down a three-minute punk assault in a bathroom as a 12-hour marathon show, the band's ambitions know no barriers. 2008's The Chemistry of Common Life and 2011's David Comes to Life stand as two of the most vital indie records of the 21st century. Salute the group's epic sound with this collection of vital cuts.
