So I still haven't heard Faith, but Void are officially incredible.

If you thought that was good, you're gonna shit your pants when you hear Void. It's some of the most ferocious music ever recorded. It only occurred to me recently that John Weiffenbach probably learned to "sing" from listening to Germs records.

Everything they put out before Henry Rollins was excellent. Once they released "Damage", I started losing interest, although I did see them with Henry. The Minutemen opened.

Damaged is a classic of the era, especially side 2. Not even Rollins could ruin it. The pre-Damaged stuff is great, too, and has been conveniently collected on the First Four Years CD. Buy it.

I couldn't remember the name, I thought it was called "Everything Went Black", and I was too lazy to open the archives.

But yeah, it is an excellent album.

Everything Went Black is also Rollins-free. I like having different versions of the same song done with different singers.

Good call. I'd forgotten all about that one. I need to get it on CD so I can "jam out" in the truck.

I do believe that The First Four Years and Everything Went Black avoid repetition, though. Right? The former is all of their official singles, EP's, and comp cuts, while the latter, if I remember correctly, is stuff from the vault they released when they were tied up with Unicorn.

Thank you for the recommendation, but I am already a fan of damaged. I will check out the compilation you mentioned though.

In hindsight, you can hear the 70's hard rock and punk rock in most early hardcore: it was a starting point for bands that would musically develop into other things. But Minor Threat were something different.

Those first two killer eps are the ground zero for hardcore as a subgenre and they were much more aggressive than their peers, employing a new (if limited) language. I'd argue they were making the most extreme rock music ever heard until that point in '81.

All those early songs hold up really, really well. Ian's persona is the key.

Out of Step is much weaker, it’s a transitional shift towards a more melodic mix that Dag Nasty did much better on Can I Say. 2 guitars did Minor Threat no favours, that’s for sure. Bad move, but I think they knew it.

Easy NC though.

Great band. All of it.

I'd give Fugazi the advantage if Guy didn't sing.

But sometimes he did; Minor Threat wins.

I have relistened to them recently and I think you're right. Thw music sounds so uninteresting today, to me at least.
Bad Brains on the other hand... There are a couple of songs that still give me the goosebumps.
