  1. I think the only thing that you missed was the Rites of Spring stuff.

    I remember having the self titled minor threat tape. It included the minor Threat and In My Eyes 7 inches. The only proper album that they recorded was Out of Step. I think you'd know the songs from there if you heard them. i especially love "Cashing In" and "Think Again." Also the songs "Stumped" and "Salad Days" are freaking awesome.

    The Embrace album is also really good. In fact, I need to go and get a copy of that.

    "Sieve-Fisted Find" is one of my favorite Fugazi songs. I think the last Fugazi album that I got was The Argument and I really did not like it. End Hits and Red Medicine were both pretty good though.
