With an uncanny ability to fuse Punk music with almost any style, Minutemen enjoyed a healthy cult following in the early 80’s. Musically tight and always experimenting, the Southern California group became a College radio staple and though commercial success eluded them, the critical response from their 1984 album, Double Nickels on a Dime leaves them a solid legacy in the Underground music world.

So talented, so innovative--so economical. Damn that D. Boon had to die in a traffic collision. A couple more albums, even a graduation, like Mike Watt and George Hurley's next band fIREHOSE, to major-label status--you'd have the Minutemen higher up on this list. fIREHOSE was okay but Ed Crawford didn't have a patch on D.

Five faves from Double Nickels:

"Jesus and Tequila"
"Political Song for Michael Jackson to Sing"
"Vietnam"
"The Roar of the Masses Could Be Farts"
"Toadies"
"West Germany"

See, that's six . . .

"If we heard mortar shells/We'd cuss more in our songs/And cut down the guitar solos"

RIP, D.
