We like switching things up here at DCXX and thought it would be interesting to dive into a time and place of D.C. hardcore that we haven't really touched on much. In my opinion this was not exactly the easiest poll to vote on, looking at this roster of bands, there's quite a few that really stand out.
Personally I went with Soulside, they've always been one of my favorite D.C. bands from that era. I can still hear that bass line that opens the song "Bass" on the "Bass / 103" 7", classic. But like I said, so many great bands to choose from... Scream, Ignition, King Face, Marginal Man, One Last Wish and of course Fugazi to name a few. As you can see, Fugazi seems to have taken the cake, can't fault that.
Of course when DCXX photo contributor, Ken Salerno noticed this poll, he pulled out the big guns and hit us up with a ton of great shots from various bands that appeared on the comp. As always, big thanks to Ken and also thanks to everyone who voted. -Tim DCXX
