Banned In D.C.
Young Bad Brains.vs.
Skating Minor Threat

As a youngster, two frontmen stuck out to me, one being HR of the Bad Brains and the other Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat. I never got to see either of them live during the 80’s because I was a dumb fuck and I would go to a lame show the week before, then when it came time for them to play L.A. I would be on punishment, and if tried to leave the house my mother said don’t come back home, and she wasn’t bluffing. Even though I didn’t see them live, Bad Brains & Minor Threat still hold a special place in my memory bank. Check out these pictures of both HR and Ian when they were young!
