Punk Politics #51

As a reminder, the mainstreaming and growth we’ve seen in hate and right wing extremism isn’t over. The frequency and severity of incidents will likely increase. A large part of that is an irresponsibility to address Nazis in the underground. Over the past decade I’ve seen more punks seeming to have no problem with em at shows and seem more interested in partying than addressing racism and racists in the scene. There’s plenty who still do the work, but not enough to send these fuckers scuttling to the darkest corners of ideological existence. So as they’re able to gain increasing passive existence, they’re now free of the leash of Trump acceptance and they’re angry at any progressive victories. Also the extreme right has evolved from the standard swastika and shaved heads. We have the Proud Boys who were a complete joke now being the flagship as they’ve been able to become a multiethnic hate group. Ideologically they are white supremacists as they fight for the supremacy of the white male dominant paradigm that has ruled America since its inception. They proudly wish to be colonizers, sexists, racists and classists. The fact that Tucker Carlson (Q Anon/ Infowars light) is the most popular news show in America lets us know that these viewpoints are no longer underground. I’ve gotten stared down plenty by proud and boog boys at the grocery store. If we don’t take sides and actions, I believe the right will be paving over culture from the underground to main street. This is the call to action, this is the line in the sand.

Straight Edge Punk Legends Minor Threat

Looking At Minor Threat

Minor Threat was the straight edge, hardcore punk band from Washington, D.C. Led by vocalist Ian MacKaye, the band was staunchly independent and fiercely sober. Through their songs, the group rejected drugs and alcohol, espoused anti-establishment politics, and led a call for self-awareness. Every song was fast and sharp, with song a minute or shorter. Over a three year period, Minor Threat released two EPs, one album, and several singles, all of which were popular in the American punk rock underground. Their records and concerts helped spawn straight-edge, an American punk rock lifestyle based on the group’s intense, clean-living ideology. Following the disbandment of Minor Threat, MacKaye formed Fugazi, a popular hardcore post punk band.

MacKaye formed the Teen Idles while he was attending Wilson High School in Washington, D.C., and after he graduated in 1980, he founded the Dischord record label with the intent of putting out his group’s records through the label.  The Teen Idles broke up and MacKaye had formed Minor Threat with former Idles drummer Jeff Nelson, former Government Issue bassist Brian Baker, and guitarist Lyle Preslar. By the end of the year, Minor Threat had released the singles “Minor Threat” and “Straight Edge,” and had played many concerts along the East Coast. Throughout 1981, they followed this same pattern, playing a lot of concerts and releasing 7″ singles.
