There was a time when punk and metal didn't coexist peacefully. Sure, you had your Motörheads that everyone could agree on, but for the most part, thrash and hardcore developed not just independent of each other, but at odds with one another. Somewhere down the line, the punks started messing around with metal riffs and getting heavier. Then, Houston's D.R.I. released Crossover in 1987, which gave the sound a label: crossover thrash. It's still as good a Rosetta Stone for the genre as has ever been released, and the Dirty Rotten Imbeciles are still grinding it out well into their third decade. MATTHEW W. SINGER
