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.

Pretty much the same for me.

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.

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)

Bumpity-bump. Just wanted to counter the "Brendan Canty sucks" vibes I get from this thread at times, he's one of my favorite drummers, let's not forget the fact that Fugazi is one of the few indie rock bands that has succesfully injected black music (reggae and funk) groove into their music without it coming across as hokey, dated and irredeemably shitty (see:music of the early 90s) and Canty is a big part of that. Plus, dude is solid, not only does he come up with these huge, canyon-size grooves, he's got a steady left foot and speedy fills.

Also wanted to add, my favorite Fugazi is Red Medicine onwards, I love the early, punkier 'gazi (In On the Kill Taker was a huge disappointment for jme though, much prefer Steady Diet) but it's the more complex, dynamic, nuanced and intricately produced stuff from '95 onwards that really gets me, peaking with The Argument.

Brendan also wrote many of the guitar lines that are the basis of Fugazi songs. He's a wonderful pianist and saxophonist too.

Never heard someone call Kill Taker a 'huge disappointment' before. Crazy.

To each their own, of course.

Yeah man, I hate to break type, but those fools would be heading towards the garbage can in my high school.

Brendan Canty is a remarkable musician, great drummer and a hell of an awesome guy.

No shit! I couldn't imagine Fugazi without him and he seems nice. Never met him in person nor can I recall specific interviews.
