On November 6th & 7th of 1982 D.R.I. recorded their first release, the Dirty Rotten EP, fitting 22 songs into 18 minutes on a 7" EP. Only 1000 copies of this EP version were pressed, making it now a very rare collector's item. Demand caused this EP to be later remixed and re-released as a full album with the same 22 songs, but in a different order, and titled "Dirty Rotten LP" . The record has a very gritty sound and is the band's only punk record along Violent Pacification 7" EP without metal influence. It is considered one of the most influential hardcore albums of all time, and is also considered one of the first trashcore records. This album would also be combined with all four songs from their 1984 Violent Pacification EP. The 7" was bootlegged in 2002 I guess. The Dirty Rotten LP was re-released yet again in 2003 as the Dirty Rotten CD, with 22 bonus tracks.
