Snuff the Punk is the first studio album by alternative metal group, P.O.D. The album was released on January 25, 1994 on Chula Vista, California-based Rescue Records, which was owned by Noah Bernardo, Sr. who happens to be Sonny Sandoval's uncle and Wuv Bernardo's father. It was completely remixed, remastered and re-released with new artwork[2] by indie label Diamante in 1999.[2] The original issue is considered a very desirable collectible by fans.
