Best Hard-to-Find-But-Worth-Every-Mile-of-Wasted-Gas Record Store (2011)

Radiation Records

In true punk-rock DIY form, Radiation Records doesn't advertise its existence. It doesn't have a website and doesn't run its Facebook page. Tucked away in an industrial building next to a Boy Scouts shop, it relies mostly on word-of-mouth and devoted followers. And the loyalty is well-deserved, with its well-stocked collection of obscure punk records and all the applicable accessories, patches and pins a young punk could want. A screen-printing operation in the backroom makes the hundreds of T-shirts that obscure the shop's poster-plastered walls. You're not going to get too much in the way of customer service, but there are damn good prices for damn good records.
