Product Description

Product Description

Fugazi fans already know that this is the original gospel according to Ian MacKaye. This Washington, D.C., quartet hit harder, faster, and franker than just about anybody--and were willing to see through their own bull as quickly as anyone else's. MacKaye manages to be charismatic and confrontational at the same time: tossing brilliant, genuinely funny asides into his serious-as-a- heart-attack lyrics. Meanwhile, the band, led by Lyle Preslar's staggering guitar attack, pushes MacKaye on with the tightest, most razor-sharp sound in all of hardcore. Nothing in the punk pantheon can come close to "In My Eyes," "Out of Step," or "Salad Days." Absolutely essential. --Michael Ruby

This is the definitive collection of any PUNK Music. Early 80's at the best. If there were only 5 bands to choose from from these days(the original days) it would be Minor Threat, The Dead Kennedy's, The Sex Pistols, Black Flag, and the Subhumans. The Ramones were awesome as well as the Clash
(but neither were really true Punk music).
Anyone saying this is ripoff music or anything else negative about this is a true loser who knows nothing about music.
This is the best Punk CD ever! EVER! Nothing touches this! Nothing! Ian McKaye is a true straight edge god. The best Punk to come from America(with the DK's following in second). If you only own one Punk CD this is it. truly amazing music that transcends any time or age barrier. Hard, exciting, brutal, real, confident, pure, traditional, angry, true, the best!
Screw anyone who says this new garbage is good music(blink 182, Good Charlotte, Offspring, or whatever other crap that exists today). This is it. the best. Own it or suffer the consequences of being a total loser!
I love this CD and I loved it when i first owned it on cassette in 1986. All posers must die!!(...)

Okay, let me admit it upfront: I am a fan of Blink-182, Green Day, and (gasp) Good Charlotte. However,I am not in denial; I know that what I am listening to is pop-rock, if that, and the above bands are in no way punk. But I can't totally have no taste in music if I loved this CD, can I? Knowing my mother would object to the purchase of it, I instead burned it from my father who has some of the same taste in music as I do (some meaning he doesn't like the pop bands but he likes Bad Religion and all that, blah blah blah) and I loved it. The songs were intelligent and lyrical yet had that good guitar sound. There were two or three songs that I found a little strong for me but what can I say? I'm not a hardcore punk; I'm a curious girl who happens to have just found a new band to love.

I will never forget lying in bed late one night in the dark as an 11-year-old kid, with Out of Step in the tape player, the first time I'd ever experienced it. That half hour frightened me like nothing ever had before, both because of the fact that the music itself is scary as hell at times (such as on No Reason, my favorite song on the album), but because my mind was blown at how brilliant the entire package was. For those who haven't already, visit your local independant music shop and pick this one up on vinyl (it'll be about 12 bucks). If that isn't an option for whatever reason, grab the Complete Discography, as it's got Out of Step as well as the excellent posthumous Salad Days EP and the group's first two records (both of which certainly have their moments).

Oh...my....goodness, this record is the epitome of hardcore punk. The word "hardcore" was invented in D.C. and I can see why. Along with the Bad Brains, Minor Threat laid the foundation for D.C. Hardcore. The live performances were amazing, just imagine legions of screaming hardcore kids throwing up their X-markered hands and shouting out lyrics to their favorite Minor Threat songs. That is what it was like on a typical show night in D.C. in '81 or '82. Although Minor Threat were not the first group of straightedgers to come along(Teen Idles), they preached it in songs like no other band. Simply listen to the song "Straightedge," and you'll see what I mean.
The album starts off strong, with Ian yelling out about people who have changed, people who won't shut up, and people doing things that are ridiculous. "Filler" gets the album off to a wonderful start. Then comes "I Don't Wanna Hear It", another exciting track. In the midst of all the F Bombs that are dropped, comes "Straightedge", the anthem for all straightedgers. Clocking in at only :43 seconds, it's still one of the best hardcore sing alongs ever. The album keeps a steady pace for a while, then comes "Guilty Of Being White", my favorite Minor Threat song. The song is about Ian being fed up with everyone who blames him for being white, he can't help it, and, obviously, he feels like he's guilty of being white. "Out Of Step" is the original straightedge rule song. "Don't smoke...Don't drink....Don't f---, at least I can f------g think." The album ends with a couple of Minor Threat's forgotten classics, "Good Guys (Don't Wear White)" and "Salad Days". Please don't "Go out, fight, fight"....and get this album...it will be in your cd player for months.

"Yo people, by now everyone knows and loves punk, its hard to turn on a demo TV at any local appliance store without a jolly happy punk song selling products!! We all love punk!! Well now and then there are some bands who say their punk rawk but really are talentless posers trying to make a quick buck off a passing trend!! These Minor Threat dudes are posers trying to do just that!!!! The production is very bad, its hard to hear what the dude is saying, the guitars are outta tune and weak, the bass sounds like a bee buzzing and the drums sound like someone is hitting tin cans!! Please, for good punk, just stick with Good Charlotte, Blink 182, Green Day, Sum 41, SR 71, Limp Bizzkit and of course Linkin Park!! These guys will never be on TRL or American Idol, and if they do go on they'll be booed very loudly and I'd giggle about it!! Also if they were to be played at the Gap or Hawt Topic at the mall, the intelligent kids there wood tell the owner not so kindly to turn it off and put on something good like Puddle Of Mudd or the mighty Trapt!!! Peace out all... "
Ok, I like this CD it's awsome. But Dude, you think Greenday, Sum 41, and Blink 128 are punk They are like (Pop-punk/ panzy punk, I don't even concider them punk.)? Well they aren't. Before you start saying how bad bands are and how they are posers learn what punk actully is. Cheack out Stiff Little fingers, Sex Pistols, there are so many great punk bands. Yet all of those bands you metioned suck (except Sum 41, Blink and Greenday, bu they are not punk!). If you think that all those bands you mentioned were punk, then you are a poser, you obviosuly no nothing about punk rock. Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, trapt, and Puddle of mudd are some of the worst bands ever.
