Fugazi – In on the Kill Taker

In on the Kill Taker

All things being equal, when you hear the phrase “hardcore punk”, Black Flag should be the first thought in your head. If there were any justice in this world, Fugazi would be the second thought. This is a band that does everything right. Everything. In spite of Minor Threat’s lingering legacy, it’s not like Fugazi is above criticism. It’s just that… there’s nothing to criticize, negatively, about In on the Kill Taker.

There’s plenty to praise (lyrics, songwriting, pricing, ethics, vocals, drums, etc…) and that’s the point. Listen to “Rend It” and you’ll get what I’m talking about. All bands should strive to be this good.
