The original double album features fifty-five hardcore punk acts from around the world, including such stalwarts as Dead Kennedys, Crass, Subhumans, Butthole Surfers, and MDC themselves. Thirty of the acts were from outside the United States, and all of the acts featured frequently wrote and recorded left-leaning topical music (with the lone exception of The Butthole Surfers, who came from a similar political position but did not normally deal with political issues in their music). Eight of the acts originated from Italy, which had been sprouting anarchist punk bands such as Cheetah Chrome Motherfuckers, Contrazione and RAF Punk (all represented on the album) for quite some time.

Maximum RocknRoll's main contribution to the project, other than assisting in recruiting acts to participate on the double album, was in the assemblage of a 72-page magazine-sized insert featuring several pages on the topics of nuclear disarmament, imperialism, radiation, pollution, and political demonstrations.
