Formed in 1987, Operation Ivy is the legendary Berkeley, CA 4‐piece fronted by future Rancid cohorts Tim Armstrong and Matt Freeman who helped create the Gilman street punk scene that also spawned Green Day and AFI, along with friends Jesse Michaels (Common Rider) and Dave Mello. "Energy" was the nineteen song, full length album released in 1989, the follow up to 1988's "Hectic" EP. the band broke up after the record release party and Energy went on to go gold. Now considered a classic, and regularly name‐checked in lists of the all‐time great punk and alternative albums from Alternative Press to SPIN, Energy is one of the few records that sells as much year in year out as it did in its original release, as new generations of fans discover this influential album.
