Minutemen. They can bop so well. I mean Fugazi are capable of amazing grooves, but i just love the minutemen beyond words. I love D Boons guitar playing. He is literally one of my favourite guitarists of all time.

And for the record I don't see Fugazi's 'approachability' as some laudable virtue, it implies that they have a right to be anything other than. It's like calling a wax dummy lifelike or something.


You're conflating defence with attack - people often make the initial statement that Fugazi talk down to people/are self righteous/elitist/etc then people who have personal experience with the human beings in the band come to their defence to let you know how wrong you (plural) are. People claim they're humorless yet those who have met and spent time with them say that is completely untrue - that's not people boasting that the guys in Fugazi are special because they like laughter, but refuting the claim that they are humorless with the actual truth.

Also, are Fugazi the most featured Thunderdomer?

I don't know enough Minutemen to answer this poll. I only listened to Double Nickels on the Dime, and it was ok. I didn't get most of it, and they only had a handful of good songs there. That was five or so years ago, so I should probably revise this record to decide.

Fugazi meant a lot to me too when I was growing up, but I haven't listened to them since then. I don't think I can get through a whole Fugazi record now. Too boring.
Maybe I'll listen to the Minutemen again and see if I like them.

Minutemen by a considerable distance, for me.

I'd say in Fugazi's defence though that they were probably a response of sorts to what the Minutemen (and others) got so right the first time.

"Five Corporations" in particular has always seemed to me like a nod to the Minutemen (which is probably why it's my favorite Fugazi song).

Both bands have records that are very important to me,

The Minutemen blew my mind.

Fugazi illustrated how to do things that made my jaw drop, with smarts and power.


Both are top bands to me, but wherever Fugazi is, Minutemen exist on a tier above them.


Minutemen.
It's like you put everything into a bottle inside itself.

I bass Century Rocket Building & Small Awesome

I drum Light Coma & Bully Pulpit & BooKoos

I'll concede to this: for the minutemen this went without saying since the start. But Fugazi did mature fast.

I think the Minutemen's "Paranoid Time" is perfect. I know it's an EP, but I think that's part of why it's so perfect. It seems like it's been perfectly tailored to fit that kind of release. I'm not sure if Fugazi ever attempted something like that, but I know that on every album of theirs there are songs that I can take or leave.

Dilettantes. This is REAL punk rock.

Oh, fuck off. You've dug yourself into a hole with your stupid conjecture. Go re-read the thread and tell me you can't see how you come across as a total asshole. You might have a lot in common with some of the people you're provoking, and if you're into Fugazi and the Minutemen as much as you say you are, you might find a lot to enjoy on this board. But get real, man, no one who gives a shit whether anyone in Fugazi would keep you sufficiently entertained if you were given the chance to hang out with them, and no one wants to read your mean, dumbfuck responses to those who disagree with you. Dick.

So Fugazi vs The Jesus Lizard was (and still is) a dead heat, but the Minutemen trump Fugazi by a 2 to 1 margin. I think it is easy to see what is next.

Hilarious. I say one word against any forum member and you treat it like sacrilege. Quit being so defensive.

I'm trying to have a discussion here.

[edit: actually "Hilarious." is more of a Rick Reuben thing, sorry]
