Minor Threat: Hardcore Happiness
RJ Smith, Musician, November 1983
THE MUSIC of Minor Threat has great humor, an ultra-physical beat, and the pace of a ride in the front seat of a roller coaster. It's music keyed for driving through the heart of a big city, or for skateboarding down a smooth suburban conduit. This is startlingly fun stuff — and that's disconcerting, given the band's bleak outlook.
