Peace Thru Vandalism, When in Rome Do as The Vandals is a compilation album by the southern California punk rock band The Vandals. It was originally released in 1989 by Restless Records (and later reissued Time Bomb Recordings, a record label founded by Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness). It is a CD re-release of the band's first EP, Peace thru Vandalism, and first LP, When in Rome Do as The Vandals, containing all of the tracks from both releases
Peace thru Vandalism is the debut EP by the American punk rock band The Vandals, released in 1982 by Epitaph Records. It was one of the first releases to be put out by the Epitaph label, founded in 1981 by Brett Gurewitz of Bad Religion.
The Vandals' prankish punk isn't as tuneful or endearing as Descendents', but their simplistic humor does have its moments, as on "Anarchy Burger (Hold the Government)," which admirably pokes fun at punk rock itself. Other jokes ("Slap of Love") aren't nearly as funny. The Time Bomb release includes both Peace Through Vandalism and When in Rome Do as the Vandals.
