post hardcore & straightedge

I've had "Waiting Room" from Fugazi stuck in my head all week.

Fugazi is "post hardcore" punk band from Washington DC..  The song "Waiting Room" was the first track on their self-titled debut EP, released in 1988 on their own label, Dischord.

Before Fugazi, lead singer Ian MacKaye was in hardcore punk band, Minor Threat.  They coined the term (and started the movement?) with this 1981 song off their self-titled EP, "Straight Edge."
