MKEpunk.com's Most Downloaded Albums of 2012
Like so many wide-eyed blogs, MKEpunk.com launched several years ago with a noble premise: to archive rare and out of print music from Wisconsin punk, ska and metal bands. Where most similarly styled projects fizzle out after a few months, though, MKEpunk.com has grown into a vast, ever-expanding library of a music scene that had never before been documented online with such depth. The site now posts new archival releases weekly, and has become a central hub of Wisconsin's punk community.
For those looking to catch up on some classic local punk albums, the site today posted a list of its 10 most-downloaded releases of 2012.
