Jason and the Scorchers - Help, There's a Fire!

From the cowpunk movement in the 80's. Most people probably know him better from his children's persona, Farmer Jason. Something about this song I love, and I don't generally like country.

Without looking it up. To me it sounds like early punk specifically uk
Actually, no. Minor Threat was a Washington DC band, only together for about 3 years, but extremely influential album. They have a Wikipedia page. Pennywise is a South Bay (Los Angeles) band who have been around forever. Still together, still playing, good live band, better than their records, seen them many times. Once was backstage at Warped Tour and talked with the singer for about 30 minutes. Nice guy, but he was pretty hammered.

But yeah, I like punk, logged a ton of time at a famous punk club called The Cuckoo's Nest. There's a free documentary about it on YouTube called "We Were Feared". Interesting stuff, captures the time perfectly, probably good watching for any fan of music history and the era.

Since I'm posting the reply, I fell compelled to post another song choice....Black Flag before Henry Rollins. The EP this is off of is another extremely influential record. The EP cover alone is a classic. Only 5 songs on it, 6 minutes and 30 second of aural anarchy from 1980.

Black Flag - No Values
