About Fugazi Shirts
After the breakup of perennial Washington, D.C., hardcore punk rock band Minor Threat, vocalist Ian MacKaye picked up a guitar and started his next band, the post-hardcore band Fugazi. In keeping with the anti-establishment, do-it-yourself mentality of his previous band, MacKaye and his record label, Dischord, refused to make Fugazi shirts, seeing them as being overpriced advertisements and a rip-off to those that bought Fugazi records. As part of a large inventory on eBay, there are fan-made Fugazi T-shirts as well as shirts from other trailblazing punk rock bands, such as Husker Du and Bad Brains. Fugazi shirts display the covers of Fugazi albums and 7-inch singles, such as "Marginal Man," "Repeater" and "In on the Killtaker." Of course, also available are the Fugazi "Bottled Violence" T-shirts, which come in blood red and bone white. During their touring career, Fugazi played more than a thousand shows, covering all 50 states as well as dozens of countries all around the world. Even though no shirts were available then, that oversight exists no longer with these fan-made Fugazi and Minor Threat shirts.
