Fugazi mattered. From their strict $5 admission policy, to never selling merchandise to infamously preventing their audiences from slam dancing they lived and breathed the DIY ethic and set the standard for every other band to try to live up to. Their approach to the business side of music was admiral and impressive but insignificant if the music itself wasn’t great and it certainly was that. From the airtight rhythm section of Joe Lally and Brendan Canty to the perfectly unique vocal interplay of Ian McKaye and Guy Picciotto they were a perfect musical storm that made six incredible albums starting with 1990’s Repeater.
