Been thinking about the Minutemen a lot lately. I remember hearing D Boon died on my local punk radio show (Disorder Show, WITR Radio in Rochester NY) and not really knowing who that was. Years later, I chanced upon the minutemen and was immediately struck with how innovative and punk they were. The fact they didn’t care at all what you thought and would play what they wanted, mellow or not, totally struck me.

I ordered the DVD last week, received it yesterday, plan on watching it soon.
RIP – D. Boon
