  1. I almost wanna say “screw this dude” and his attitude of “hardcore died in 1986”

    I mean, yeah, it is a great documentation of the early hardcore scene, but to editorialize it, and throw around your opinoin that anything that happened after 85 or whatever year wasn’t “hardcore” just pisses me off.

    There I go. Seeing the negative in everything.

  2. gray

    More importantly, this lists Dez Cadena as being in Red Cross (sic) and Black Flag, but fails to acknowledge the Happy Tampons, and for that reason alone I question the integrity of the whole project.

  3. Oh shit.
    Just noticed this…

    Rev. Hank Pierce (roadie)

    He was like the 6th member of Slapshot. A legend and shit. Rad. Original Boston Crew. Whooohooo
