Minor Threat Birthday of the Day

Minor Threat Birthday of the Day
- -

Ferociously independent DIY champion Ian MacKaye turned 50 today. FIFTY. That's pretty hardcore.

As the figurehead for hardcore heroes Minor Threat and post-hardcore prototype Fugazi, it's difficult to make an Argument against MacKaye's musical legacy. Strange to think he's half a century old now, isn't it?

Remember those 1,000-something $5 concerts Fugazi did? Well, you can watch 800 of them here. Consider it your Red Medicine for the day.

IMPORTANT QUESTION THOUGH: Does MacKaye still have the straight edge?
