Day # 311 Dag Nasty - Can I Say?
Color: Navy Blue
Brand: Allstyle Apparel
Source: No i did not get to see Dag Nasty. Yes it sucks. Yes i would go see them now in a heartbeat. Did I like 4 on the Floor, yep. Was a pumped when Down By Law finished off their set with a Dag Nasty Song, Fucking A I was!
I’ve said it before how much Dave Smalley had on my as a young duder, and shit even now. but then, Dag Nasty ruled the shit out of my life. I wish i had some old pics of my i could post up here but i never did like getting my picture take so there are not many around. but Dag Nasty , 7 Seconds, BLack Flag and Descendents were on content rotation.
Its hard to describe but I liked these bands for different reasons. Ill Put Dave Smalley and Kevin Seconds in One Cat, Milo / Bill from Descendents in another, and Bands like Cirle Jerks, Agent Orange and Black Flag in another.
The first group 7Seconds/Dag Nasty i gravitated to because i felt as if i could relate with everything they were singing about, being an outcast, hating Jocks, etc.. I was a loner, i didn’t play sports, i dint fit in until well, i still don’t. but then i dint fit in even more. i didn learn to not give a shit what other people thought, and did. they were all sheep and afraid of being different, i was not.
The Descendents category was the wishy washy dude in my that talked on the phone for hours to girls and liked to get load, and fell in love and all that garbage. and the breakups. all of it.
the Black Flag/ Circle Jerks Category was the music i gre up on listening to going to and form the skatepark, and while skateboarding. it was the getting geared up music, to get yourself psyched to just down 10 stair handrails and before going into punk rock shows.
I still have a great amount of respect for Dave / Kevin today. they are both still doing it, doing what they loved 30 years ago, and not stopping, i think it is all they know, sending the message to new kids everyday. I got mine, and if i could send it back to them i would just say thanks a bunch, it helped a ton!
