Music: One of the best--and first--hardcore punk bands, Minor Threat
As we have mentioned in a few of our posts, punk rock was our first love. Minor Threat was a band from Washington D.C. Though they only lasted for about three years, from 1980 to 83, they are widely considered to have been the first punk band to solidify the "hardcore punk" sound in songs such as "Filler."
They also started the Straight Edge movement (though few of the straight edge kids I know come close to being as cool as Ian MacKaye).
