Their songs were played loud, fast and crisp and each song was so short it was over before you knew it. Minor Threat’s career was bit like that too, as they were not around for very long. Like Bad Brains, they were an important fixture in the Washington D.C. Punk scene, but unlike other Punk acts, they were advocates of the “Straight Edge” lifestyle and are considered the first act to champion that. Although their run was limited, and their fan base was small, they actually had a bit of an impact.
