Madball defined the New York hardcore scene. When that scene started to die and all of its disciples went the route of the surging emo scene, Madball stuck to it and single-handedly fueled a scene on the brink of collapse. For that, they've won a spot in the hearts of all the hardcore followers of today—and the respect of all of their peers.

Madball's was a unique brand of music—so wrapped with passion that it was contagious—one listen and you couldn't help but get hit with the power the band felt. Only the most special bands receive albums that are “best of” compilations, bands that music is indebted to. Madball is one of those bands, if for nothing else, because of their appreciation and passion for the music that they played.
