Regret - Punk Since Ten

This may be, in terms of musicality, the worst record in my collection. The singer can't sing, the guitar is out of tune, and the drums are generic. But, in a way, that's what makes this 7" so great. Released in 1994 on Middle Man Records, this appears to be (as far as my research can tell), the only release by the band. They hail from Punta Gorda, Florida (as evidenced by the hand-written address on the inner sleeve) and play what is best-described as fan punk. You can tell they were into Green Day and Minor Threat and try to emulate them in their songs. I also like the labels of the record itself, which list songs popular at the time (Side A lists 2 songs from Offspring's Smash and Side B 2 from Green Day's Dookie) with the band's name printed over them. Here's a picture of the A Side label:
