Operation Ivy was the eighth series of American nuclear tests, coming after Tumbler-Snapper and before Upshot–Knothole. The two explosions were staged in late 1952 at Eniwetok Atoll in the Pacific Proving Ground in the Marshall Islands. The first Ivy shot, Mike, was the first successful full-scale test of a multi-megaton thermonuclear weapon ("hydrogen bomb") using the Teller-Ulam design.

Operation Ivy existed for only two years, during which time they changed the DNA of punk music forever by merging hardcore velocity with peppy two-step rhythms, resulting in an often imitated (but never duplicated) sound. This album compiles their brief-but-brilliant original discography into one document, showcasing guitarist Tim Armstrong’s herky-jerk riffs on tracks like Take Warning, and displaying singer Jesse Michaels’ sincere pleas for dancing instead of violence on the party-starting Unity.

Operation Ivy. Album Energy. Something breaks inside of you With the spectacle of all the shows With fifteen fights and your six bucks Has gone up some promoter's nose Jaded eyes see clearly, but only half of what's there Good old days are left behind, what's left is boredom and despair.

Redirected from Operation Ivy (punk band)). Operation Ivy, sometimes called "Op Ivy," (op Iv) was an American punk rock band from Berkeley, California formed in May 1987. The band was stylistically important as one of the first bands to mix the elements of hardcore punk and ska into a new amalgam called ska punk and was critical to the emergence of Lookout Records and the so-called "East Bay Sound.

After Operation Ivy called it quits at the end of the '80s, Lookout put together this compilation of all of the recorded studio material ever released by the group. Much like Minor Threat's Complete Discography, this follows the recorded history of a band that burnt out quickly and had a relentlessly creative view of punk music. The underground classics are all here: "Take Warning," "Unity," "Freeze Up," "Junkie's Runnin' Dry," and 23 other prime tracks.
