The album was produced by Daniel Rey, who had previously worked with The Ramones, The Misfits and even Boston hardcore punk band Gang Green – with whom Murphy`s Law shares a lyrical pen. He also wrote one of the songs on this album, “Green Bud”. It was followed by the EP Good for Now in 1993 and the studio album The Best of Times in 1991. The album Dedicated, released in 1996, is dedicated to former bassist Chuck Valle, killed in a knife incident in 1994.  Her image appears on the back of the CD inlay and an image of a tattoo with the words “In Memory of Chuck” appears on the inlay of the jewelry case. The band did not record another album until The Party`s Over in 2001, but had numerous singles, compilations and split EPs with other bands in between. In 2002, Reflex/Wolfpack Records released a European vinyl pressing of The Party`s Over. The production of John “Norwood” Fisher and Philip “Fish” Fisher of Fishbone adds authenticity and diversity to The Best of Times, as does the additional instrumentation of several Fishbone members. James Brown and Stevie Wonder covers provide insight into Murphy`s Law`s sometimes controversial and misunderstood affiliation with the skinhead faction and ultimately dispel any accusation that racism or fascism has anything to do with the band`s attitude. Although the band managed to abandon this cliché and develop musically The Best of Times, the theme does not deviate too much from previous works. The songs about pot, beer, girls and cars show the glorious immaturity and pursuit of pleasure that Murphy`s Law pretty much defines.
When the group becomes serious, which is not very often the case, it is in the interest of unity and friendship. Murphy`s Law is an American hardcore punk band from New York City, formed in 1982. While singer Jimmy Gestapo remains the only founding member of the band, the line-up consisted of many musicians who played with a varied selection of musical acts of different genres, such as Skinnerbox, Danzig, The Bouncing Souls, Mucky Pup, Dog Eat Dog, Hanoi Rocks, Agnostic Front, Warzone, Cro-Mags, D Generation, New York Dolls, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, The Slackers, Thursday, Skavoovie and the Epitones und Glen Campbell. The title track is essentially a tribute to the fans and thanks a small but loyal group of followers for the support that kept Murphy`s Law going. The ska-tinged but heavy “1%” revels in the outcast punk rock ethic and winks at those who embrace the good and bad of surfing on the margins of culture and society. The classic rage of Murphy`s Law appears on “Than Who,” an assault on the senseless aggression and competition that sometimes dominates the hardcore scene. Murphy`s Law is an American hardcore punk band from New York, New York, United States, formed in 1982. While singer Jimmy Gestapo remains the only founding member of the band, the line-up in the past consisted of former members of bands such as Skinnerbox, Danzig, The Bouncing Souls, Mucky Pup, Dog Eat Dog, Hanoi Rocks, Agnostic Front and D Generation.Im throughout their careers, Murphy`s Law has released five albums, the last of which was released in 2001. Murphy`s Law ushered in the 1990s with a renewed explosion of their extravagant brand of comic punk.  Stylistically, Murphy`s Law has taken quite a leap forward compared to The Best of Times.
The band tried skacore long before their explosion, but was still a hardcore band in the 1980s. The Best of Times reunited with Jimmy Gestapo and his friends who combined funk, reggae, ska and hardcore in their own mix, getting rid of all the dogmatic constraints on the standards of their genre in the 1980s. On April 12, 2010, Murphy`s Law announced in a MySpace blog post that they were working on a sixth studio album as well as DVD and vinyl reissues of their catalog. On May 4, 2011, it was announced that Murphy`s Law had signed to I Scream Records, which would release the band`s first studio album with original material since 2001`s The Party`s Over. The reissued albums were released in 2014 on CD, digital download and vinyl with previously unreleased bonus tracks. Until today, however, the new album with original material has not yet been released. Back with a Bong was released on Profile Records in 1989 and reissued on Another Planet Records in 1994, with the previous self-titled album released on the same CD. It arrived three years after the previous album and the band had undergone a kind of transformation with Jimmy Gestapo as the only remaining member. Alex Morris was replaced on guitar by Todd Youth – previously with New York hardcore bands Agnostic Front and Warzone, and later with Danzig. Chuck Valle replaced Pete Martinez on bass and Doug E. Beans took over from Petey Hines on drums. In 1989, Murphy`s Law opened for the Red Hot Chili Peppers on their Mother`s Milk tour. In 2002, the band appeared in Matthew Barney`s film Cremaster 3 with Agnostic Front.
In 2004, the song “Vicky Crown” appeared in a video montage with Nick Mondo in the game Backyard Wrestling 2. In 2008, the song “A Day in the Life” was introduced, along with Jimmy G. himself as the DJ of the radio station Liberty City Hardcore (L.C.H.C) in the action video game Grand Theft Auto IV. On the fine line between obnoxious skatepunk and tempered metal, Murphy`s Law originated in the New York hardcore scene in the mid-80s and formed in Astoria, Queens, around singer Jimmy Gestapo, but the band`s frequently changing line-up also included guitarists Todd Youth, Alex Morris and Jack Flanagan; bassists Pete Martinez, Chuck Valle and Dean; and drummers Doug E. Beans and Eric Arce. The band`s self-titled debut album, released on Profile in 1986, included the usual `80s themes (boredom, alienation, weed, beer, etc.), but the songs were definitely there, and Murphy`s Law got even better with their second album, 1989`s Back with a Bong! The band was on Profile Associate Combat Records for The Best of Times in 1991, but recorded little in the early 90s. In 1995, Murphy`s Law returned with the EP Good for Now, and the album Dedicated was released the following year. Best of Times/Good for Now was published in 2000; The Party`s Over was released in the spring of 2001. The self-titled debut album includes fast, short songs with more mosh sections, but they also managed to mix laid-back California punk sounds and even blues in New York hardcore anthems. Some of the songs on this album can also be seen as an influence on the burgeoning thrash metal scene, which had incorporated elements of New York hardcore into their overall sound and structure – for example, Anthrax and S.O.D., whose album Speak English or Die (released even a year before the recording of Murphy`s Law) was released prior to this release. They shared a common interest in the lyrical themes of drinking, smoking, and partying with Boston hardcore band Gang Green – another trait that sets them apart from the socio-political tendencies of other NYHC bands. On the following albums, they diversified into ska with experiments.
