For me, the endless appeal of Minutemen (especially Double Nickels) is that it is one of the few rock records where there's not a single ounce of bullshit to be found. No production trickery, no attempt at sounding "accessible" to the masses, no filter of any sort. It's unadulterated rock in its purest form.

this thread put me on a minutemen kick. Put on Double Nickels this morning on the way in to work and it made me really not want to go to work. The thing about these guys is that their music is so them. Their politics and ideals and insecurities are so wrapped up together in these songs. Bands like this make me really jealous of people who are surrounded by folks with passion and a drive to create. Everyone I end up in a band with treats it like an inconvenience or a low priority.

We're planning on moving to Portland when Bec finishes grad school. Let's start a priority weirdo rock band!

Double Nickels is a perfect record and I feel nothing but sympathy for those who view it otherwise.

This band is torture to me.

On The Blasting Concept, Minutemen are certainly the worst of those bands, although their stuff on there is far better than what's on that five hour long pfunk record everyone loves. (Saccharine Trust is the best).

The rhythm that bound those guys together blocks my arteries. Try to imagine Shellac playing a Minutemen song! It would not be sweet! It would be brutal!

I like thinking about how much they must have loved each other, though. And I guess I like that song Blender used. "Sell or Be Sold" is okay, I'm saying.

They'd do a great "Paranoid Chant." You know, the one Jason Jessee used.

"Jesus and Tequila" or "This Ain't No Picnic" seem like they could work.

I don't think the drummer would go for it.

I'd be shocked if the drummer sat around loving Minutemen records.

Bass player was in Volcano Suns, so he loves Minutemen.

(This is based on listening.)

Guitar player loves Minutemen under the same principles that he hates Butthole Surfers.

(This is based on reading.)

I'd bet all my Minutemen records on it.

(I have zero.)
