Minutemen - Double Nickels on the Dime Click here to see this CD at Amazon.com!

By David Cantwell

Minutemen's Double Nickels on the Dime is a masterwork of American indie rock, a sprawling, 42-song explosion of terse, revolutionary rock & roll. Rifling through a kind of lurching punk-funk, this San Pedro, California, trio poses philosophical questions, mocks love-song clichés and Michael Jackson, covers CCR and Van Halen, and gets drunk on "Jesus and Tequila"--all of it brought to life by the jazzy, popping bass of Mike Watt; the rifle-shot fills of drummer George Hurley, and the staccato guitar and impassioned cries of the late D. Boon, whose voice will forever insist: "No hope? See, that's what gives me guts."

"This album is a masterpiece. Probably the greatest hardcore/punk record ever made. The Minutemen were probably the greatest musicians of their generation and this album proves it!"

--Josh

"What a record!! A great example of a band that is extremeley well practiced. D.Boon,Watt, and Hurley are as tight a band as any ever heard. No fancy pedals, studio gadgets, and endless overdubs, just a guitar, bass and drums well mic'ed. The passion and delivery of these songs is immense.It does'nt get more honest than Double Nickels on the Dime.This record never gets old. Most of the young bands today should take a long hard lesson from this. Every song hits the mark. Phenominal!!!"

--Anonymous

"Probably the greatest album ever made! Definately the greatest album of the eighties. 48 songs - almost half of which are bonafide classics! This had a huge impact with people that heard it. Unfortunately not many did (at least here in Australia)."
