1986 – Dag Nasty – Values Here
“…Fear of failure
Fear of reprimand
Two big problems
I’ve never had
I never doubted what I had inside…”
Few people got to experience early punk rock, 1977-1986. Too intimidating, too not mainstream, too fast, too uncool, too hard to understand… There was a simple message, “DIY.” That concept no longer resonates with the masses, it is not taught nor promoted.
I have NEVER feard failure and I have NEVER feard being told I did something wrong – when I did. I have never doubted what I had inside. Is this just who I am and so drawn to punk as a kid, or did punk help to mold me into who I am today?
That said, what helped to shape you into who you are today?
