If any of you readers have ever been at all interested in hardcore punk, then most likely you have heard of this band. What I didn’t know was that this band from DC that I didn’t know about in all my years living there and that they essentially created not only the DC hardcore scene but the entire hardcore punk movement. Their song “Attitude” made many punk fans start to look at life from a positive mental attitude, bringing humanitarian work into the punk movement.
I doubt we would have all of these great emo bands, many of which are coming from DC and the Mid-Atlantic if a bunch of guys in a reggae band called Mind Power heard the Sex Pistols and decided to change the name to Bad Brains. Very cool stuff.
