Volume 1: track listing[edit]

The track listing on the back cover of Volume 1 is notable for several errors in the titles of songs and even the names of the bands. For example, 'Christmas Night Of The Living Dead' by MxPx is listed as 'Christmas Night Of Zombies', and Acceptance's cover of 'Happy Xmas (War Is Over)' is listed as 'So This Is Christmas'.
