Operation Ivy was an American punk rock band from Berkeley, California formed in May 1985.

I think this is one of the best punk cd's that I own. Operation Ivy did things the correct way, they kept there songs quick paced, rough edged, and short. I like how almost all of these tracks are two minutes or less.

After agreeing to start over from scratch, Livermore was assigned with the task of firing Hirsch from the project and the band went to Sound and Vision Studios in San Francisco with Kevin Army in January 1989 to re-record the album.

Among the best works of the rightfully maligned ska-punk genre, Operation Ivy's Energy is an unsurpassed, highly intelligent, extremely fun record. At the pinnacle of the East Bay punk scene, Operation Ivy sadly fizzled out just before the record was released, but left their mark and are frequently cited as an inspiration to all the bands that came later and played the same sort of music, though never as well  . The result, on this, their only full-length, was an album full of classic anthems that every one of their rabid fans at Berkeley's 924 Gilman Street used to sing along to at their packed shows.
