Description: 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.

My Favourite Albums (448 music items)

"This album is legendary for a reason. Minutemen were able to combine the classic punkrock attitude with out of this world musicianship and unique, creative vision many other bands couldn't even imagine. The funky rhythm section here is wonderful, but then there also seems to be a lot of nice blues improvisation. This is very spot on, and clearly paved the way for other similar acts that came after, like Nomeansno."

RS: 40 Greatest Punk Albums of All-Time (40 music items)

"Three blue-collar corn dogs from the port town of San Pedro, California, with zero pretensions and a gift for gab, and a hilarious taste for no-bullshit political analysis like the "The Roar of the Masses Could Be Farts." All over this sprawling, 45-song double-album classic, guitarist D. Boon and bassist Mike Watt spiel back and forth about a lifetime of friendship rooted in shared punk values — as Boon says in "History Lesson, Pt. 2," "Our band could be your life." They also stretch out into"

100 Greatest American Albums of All Time (100 music items)

"Small-town band made punk its own The Minutemen’s fourth album had singer/guitarist D. Boon and bassist Mike Watt spitting political rants and brainy working-class yarns, while Boon’s gnarled guitar leads occupied the middle ground between funk, jazz, hardcore and John Fogerty. Standout tracks: “Corona,” “History Lesson, Pt. 2”"

500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die! (500 music items)

"The California trio’s 44-song masterpiece mixes hardcore, jazz and funk, pushing American punk a step further. Switching styles at any given moment, their deadly serious approach is leavened by pokes at Michael Jackson and Ronald Reagan. Standout track: “This Ain’t No Picnic”"
