i have never given them hero status. I think they are a decent enough band to be considered a "good" band that is worth listening to. And I agree, Argument is better. Instrument was my introduction, and I recommend Instrument to anyone who has never listened to Fugazi before.

I remember hearing that they have only played a few shows at the $5 price...unwillingly. Most of their shows were said to be free-$3. I have no credible sources to back that up though. I read that in a magazine during my 9th grade year. I smoked a lot of regs back then. My memory could be wrong.

good question.
Obviously the Rolling Stones , but i don't feel weird, i'd say i feel GOOD about ignoring them.
however apart from Cotrane, Miles or the Duke, i never seem to be able to dig jazz too much, especially contemporary acts...
Also stuff like Black Sabbath, Led Zep, don't really appeal to me.
good question again.
edit : the Fall, The Smiths, Wire, Black Blag

Led Zep and The Smiths (love some of their singles but I can't imagine liking their albums). Gang Of Four too, considering I live in Leeds, but I don't like the sound of them (punk-funk, 'radical' lyrics).

I think a large part of whether one "gets into" a band or doesn't (not necessarily meaning dislikes, just doesn't get around to them), is a matter of "being there."

The reason I like many of the bands I do is that I was keenly aware of their presence on the scene as it were when they were in making music, in their heyday.

Going back and seeing if you can pick up on a band is much more difficult. They tend not to resonate as much if you come to them fresh 20 years after they've produced their stuff. I think that's why I'm lukewarm about the Smiths. Maybe if I'd paid more attention to them in the 80s, I'd feel differently about them.

INSTRUMENT is the only Fugazi album I have. I like it, but feel content to not seek out anything else at this point in time.

You know, Led Zeppelin aren't often liked just for their singles. Especially in this country, considering they er... didn't release any. They're the textbook definition of album rock.

Same here. I love that album, but I've never really gotten into their other stuff. I don't mean that as in I don't like their other stuff, I just haven't gotten into it; I haven't really looked into their other stuff.

Exactly how I feel. I respect them and all. But I don't know. I feel like if I bought other albums by them, I'd still only listen to INSTRUMENT when I was in the mood for them. If that makes sense.

"Instrument" is not even a "real" Fugazi album though.

I'm saying, how can you judge a band based on a cd of demos and outtakes? That really is the absolute worst album you can possibly say, "I don't feel like I need to hear anything else by them" about. Yes, you have the right to say whatever you want -- I just find it odd. It's like judging Sonic Youth solely off of Silver Sessions or something.
