On April 6, 2004 Epitaph released remastered versions of How Could Hell Be Any Worse? (previously 80-85), Suffer (album), No Control (album), Against the Grain (album), Generator (album), and a remastered DVD version of Along The Way (video).
Brett: ... "we really sound like a garage band more than a punk band [on How Could Hell...]. I always used to think, “This sounds so crappy. It sounds kind of unprofessional and juvenile.” I used to feel that way years ago about the time of the Suffer record, when I tried to make that record sound better. But now when I listen to How Could Hell Be Any Worse, I think, “Man, that’s actually pretty cool!” I listen to it today and it sounds exciting and raw and I like it again. The remasters sound cool...digital dithering was just so crappy in like ’88, when we started playing everything on CD. It mostly sounded grainy and quiet. We actually dug out the master tapes, not the multi-tracks, but the two tracks, to remaster it."
How Could Hell Be Any Worse? versus 80-85: The album artowrk was replaced with the proper HCHBAW? front cover and back cover (with the proper tracklist), marking the first time the HCHBAW? artwork was used on a compact disc.
Against The Grain: The front, back, and tray card artwork was changed on compact disc:
Generator: This remastered version features two bonus tracks, the original versions of "Fertile Crescent" and "Heaven Is Falling," both taken from the 7" Noam Chomsky New World Order #1 split, released in 1991. These tracks feature Pete Finestone on drums, his last recordings with the band.
