Haha, even Ian fell for the fake-out intro once!

For someone who only owns (and enjoys) Repeater and The Argument, which other albums are essential from the back catalogue? Or is it just a case of get it all?

Skip Steady Diet of Nothing as it may leave you a bit disappointed and uninspired to seek out more (it did me for years), go straight to In On The Kill Taker and revel in its nastiness.

I still have a huge, huge place in my heart for Fugazi, but lately I'm just not able to get into their albums at all.

I don't know if I've juiced everything I possibly can from their records over the years or what...it's just not happening for me anymore.

I kind of fear a future where I get zero enjoyment out of In on the Kill Taker.

Still obviously Not Crap and it makes me happy when I hear of the younger kids in this city just starting to discover Fugazi.

I'm a little weirded out/resentful of people who site Red Medicine as thee album without really giving much thought to the others. Not as bad as people who just know 'Waiting Room" or whatever...and if that's the one for you, ok fine. But that seems to be the favorite among the later, casual fans. I still think the sweet spot is just between Steady Diet and IOTK.

Thanks all.
Lots of differing opinions on ranks and which are the better albums so I think I'll play it safe and get the lot.

You can really hear how influenced by the Foo Fighters they were on the first demos

I think IOTKT, Red Medicine and End Hits are essential but you'd not be making any mistakes just getting the entire catalog. You can skip the Instrument soundtrack.

In On the Killtaker changed my life. Picked it up in a record store at 16 because I'd heard of them and liked the cover, opened the door to everything. To me it's by far the most interesting , visceral and coherence record.

The sound of Ian's guitar on 13 songs is righteously great. I really dig the whole wall of rhythm thing going on.

Great band for the start of a new year.
I don't need the people of Athens any more than I need another hole in my head. I've got five already, thank you very much.

What is going on?

EDIT: Is Fugazi now hip for "fake"? Man, I'm getting old.

I know that meaning, was still curious why a Hip New York Streetwear Label™ Would put Fugazi on a hat referencing the band we all know and (mostly) love.

Although, they were inspired by Born Against once, and have done collaborations with Misfits and Suicidal Tendencies (a lot more here: http://www.complex.com/style/2013/06/su ... ption-lies)
