The influence that Madball has had on NYHC (and hardcore in general) can't be understated. Whether you love them or don't listen to them ever, you can't deny their importance. As for me, I'm not a die-hard fan of any sort, but the first EP "Ball of Destruction" is among my favorite late 80's (almost 90's) NYHC recordings. Featuring most of Agnostic Front at the time with Roger Miret's brother on vocals, it's basically an AF release. It even features several AF songs. So this is more of an AF release with a few member changes than anything, and it's great.
