Freebase

  1. Unsound

    Unsound is the first, and currently only, compilation released in the Unsound series, which replaced Epitaph Records' Punk-O-Rama series. Epitaph chose to change the name of the compilation series because the name "Punk-O-Rama", especially in its later releases, no longer reflected the wide range of music released on the compilations. Unsound is similar to the last two entries in the Punk-O-Rama series in that it is a two-disc set with a CD and a DVD, which contains music videos of bands on the CD.

  1. Unsound

    un-sownd′, adj. not sound or perfect: not honest: erroneous: defective: (Spens.) not substantial, not to be depended upon.—adv. Unsound′ly.—n. Unsound′ness.
