  4. I started listening to the Minutemen when i was 11 years old and it completely changed the way i looked at and played music. Happy birthday D.

  5. D. Boon is one of the best guitarist that ever lived and the best punk guitarist/songwriter/vocalist of all time. Minutemen changed my musical life. “This Ain’t No Picnic” is the perfect punk song.
