Bad Religion- (1980-1985)
Shirt: Minor Threat - Out Of Step (1996 Version)
Source: It really always comes back to this band. and if i have my way always will. people talk about the Beatles changing music and shit, but fucking Minor Threat changed the content of music. It wasn’t about drugs, love and booze, it was about change and awareness. Monumental if you ask me. and really doesn’t get the coverage it deserves outside of a punk rock circle. It is one of the greatest things to happen to the musical landscape. so much unfolded out of it. amazing. thats really it.
Then go on and make a less politely charged but more of a musical masterpiece like Fugazi is just nuts. i woulda bronzed my hands and left it at that. is there an Ian McKaye statue yet? if not…we should think about that. I’d prefer if it was erected while he was alive that after he passes so we can enjoy it with happiness rather than remorse and sadness.
A Long time ago when i still worked at myspace and they were relaunching to that dumb My____ logo they came to me and asked me for “BIG” ideas. so i came up with this initiative to go to all these big cities and underwrite public parks and clean them up , put outdoor stages where bands could play free shows and erect a statue in each city to the band we wanted to celebrate. and all the parks had free wifi to boot.
So in DC there was a “Minor Threat” park and in that park was a statue of each member in different parts of park. in Atlanta there would be a Stature of Big Boi and Andre 3000, Boise got Built To Spill, Seattle Nirvana..you get the idea…so every city you visited it was palace to go, an attraction. i still think it is a good idea, but like most companies i think they bought a billboard in times square for a week instead… God forbid you do something great for each city, support music and help it grow and give back. fucking morons.
See what i mean it all comes back to Minor Threat. I promise you that idea would have never even occurred to me if i hadn’t listened to Minor Threat as a kid and ultimately why it fails on a corporation because they did not. they grew up listening to NKOTB worrying about themselves and what they looked like.
