Darby Crash’s vocals are a train wreck, Pat Smear’s guitar spins out of control, no one keeps time…and yet somehow the Germs live was some of the greatest punk rock that ever was. These rare recordings—made in 1978 at L.A.’s Hong Kong Café and in 1979 at the legendary Whisky a Go Go, plus two rehersals recorded at S.I.R. studios—are punk rock in the making, the likes of which has never been seen since.

Pressed on 180 gram virgin vinyl.

It also marks the first use of five letter song titles and a five letter album title since WWIII. The album charted after its release, as did the song "People of the Lie". Most of its songs were remixed for the band's next release, Krieg.

Germs ‎– Media Blitz. Label: Cleopatra ‎– CLP 2289. Format: CD, Album, Reissue, Compilation.

This collection of the Germs' rare tracks and previously unreleased live performances gives the listener an understanding of just how chaotic and disorganized a band can be. Each track is a butchering of their usually poetic and entertaining brand of punk. Darby Crash rarely sings but chooses to slur his lyrics into an incoherent growl. The band remains consistent behind Crash, as he provides the entertainment with continuous banter with the audience. The only thing robbing this album of being a legendary car crash of a live show like Metallic .
