13. Rancid - Let's Go
Though their debut album wasn’t released with a lot of hype, the punk scene was interested to hear what a reunion of ex-Operation Ivy members would sound like on wax. Drawing more from the loud punk of The Clash, Rancid’s debut album on Epitaph Records didn’t abandon ska, but definitely sounded more leather and spikes than two-tone and checkerboards. The success of the track “Salvation,” turned many who had never heard Op Ivy onto the second Bay Area band to blow up in 1994, and Let’s Go launched the band out of the underground.
