Fugazi means more to me than the Minutemen ever will. The Minutemen, they bore me. There's not enough variety to what they do, it all kind of blends together.

*waits for windofpain to say some variation of "Fugazi sux Minutemen rule"*

The Minutemen wipe the floor with Fugazi.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

Both bands were great live and comprised of top-notch people. While I enjoyed watching Fugazi play, their records never really drew me in. The Minutemen, on the other hand, made records that still blow my mind to this day.

Everything between Paranoid Time and Double Nickels is gold.

Everything by Fugazi except Steady Diet is gold.

D. Boon's solo's all blend together after a while, while each Fugazi album had definitely a different weird groove that you could tell them apart by.

However, If you gave me a playlist that just alternated between the best Minutemen songs and Fugazi song's I'd enjoy Minutemen more.

Fugazi made better albums.

Minutemen made better songs.


Fugazi, but it's close.

I think I can count the number of times I've listened to the Fugazi records I own on my hands. I've listened to the Minutemen records I own countless times. They mean so much more to me than Fugazi ever could.

I could almost say the opposite, though I haven't listened that little to the Minutemen records, which I like.

Two thoroughly exemplary bands. Both have remarkable bodies of work, made superb albums, played excellent shows, and were great people on and off stage.

As great as Fugazi were (are?), they never made an album quite as good as Double Nickels On The Dime. For my money that's one of the two or three best albums of the 1980s. More than twenty-five years after it came out, I can listen to Double Nickels and still find amazing new things in there -- you can practically never get to the bottom of it. They made that, and a bunch of other great to excellent records. For me, the recorded legacy tips the scales in the Minutemen's favor.

The Minutemen were a fucking bulldozer, annihilating every preconceived notion. I like Fugazy a lot, but their music is not that mind blowing and they are too "cute" for me, for some reason. Maybe because of Ian's tiny hats? Who knows.

The Minutemen do not wipe the floor with Fugazi, they might be better, you might prefer them but they do not wipe the floor with them. How many Fugazi thunderdomes are there now? I can't answer this one, both bands are at the pinnacle.

Very few bands could top Minutemen for me, Fugazi is not one of them.

Fugazi made records and did things that changed my thinking about music and politics.

The Minutemen changed my life.

The Minutemen.

End Hits is the only Fugazi album I truly enjoy from start to finish. They seem like incredibly amazing and creative people, and I'm sure they were phenomenal live, but they come nowhere close to The Minutemen in my book.
