Album Title: The Best of Taste of Chaos
Release Date: November 8, 2005
Genre: Punk-Rock
There's not a single surprise here. The Best of Taste of Chaos compilation is exactly what a person would expect it to be. All of the artists that Warped kids love are found on the 2.5-hour, 2-disc set, and if played loud enough, could achieve the same resultsóplenty of head banging and a circle pit. It is interesting to have such a sampling of emo/hardcore/punk bands in one spot though. The Used, Story Of The Year, Dir en grey, Saosin, Rise Against, Alexisonfire, Funeral For A Friend, Dillinger Escape Plan, Thrice, Thursdayóthey're all here. It makes it insanely easy to put that age-old complaint of "every punk band sounds the same these days" through its paces.

While mom and pop might use Taste of Chaos to do just that, those willing to pay closer attention will spot the differences. One of the most notable is Billy Talent, who contribute non-album track "Red Flag". Haters bewareóthey stand out like no other band on the compilation, heads, shoulders and mohawks above the rest.
