Minor Threat

Further Notes:

Subjects for Further Research [1980s]: In theory I agree that Ian MacKaye's D.C. crew was the definitive hardcore band. In theory I love "In My Eyes" and the Dead parody. But those tracks aren't altogether breakneck, and I'm afraid I'd rather theorize about Minor Threat than hear them--they were too fucking pure. Maybe this will change as I get older--or maybe I'll discover MacKaye's mature band, Fugazi.
