50 bands Mike Judge has seen

This is another one of those entries we've gathered from scouring the depths of Facebook. Maybe you've seen it, maybe you haven't, but either way it's now here in the DCXX archives. Not much of an introduction needed, 50 bands Mike Judge has seen and a couple of choice comments to follow. Kinda cool to think that right here is a list of bands that influenced / left an impression on Mike and what would become the mighty Judge. -Tim DCXX

Mark Ryan: I remember that Black Flag show at Hitsville. I didn't go that night but that's the one I was talking about in the Sam McPheeters interview. I went to the sound check on my BMX and the club owner wouldn't let me in. I wound up riding aggressively in front of the club and cursing him out, then he was like "Ok kid, you got heart, c'mon in". As soon as I walked in Henry and Glen called me over and asked me what my name was and I nervously hung out with them and got to see Black Flag's soundcheck. Bummed I couldn't get into the real show though, I thought about trying to hide in the bathroom or something but it wouldn't have been so easy with my bike.

Mike Judge: Yeah, I didn't list alot bands, just the ones that popped in my head. Most people want to hear about those old Lower East Side shows anyway. It's weird how much live music we've seen. Between CB's, Pyramid, Gildersleeves, Rock hotel, Max's and the old Ritz, we've seen alot of bands bro. I even left out my favorite show of all time, Misfits, Kraut, and Even Worse at Irving Plaza. Thats the night Jerry and Doyle destroyed the Rapid Deployment punks right in the middle of their set. Then they went back on stage and played WE Bite! epic night man. I also left out all those great Jersey bands. 50 just aint enough.

Why this entry? do you really need to ask? something tells me that your euro-trash ass hasn't seen anything half as cool as black flag, the misfits, abused, necros, reagan youth, urban waste, mode of ignorance, ssd, dys or iron cross in your entire waste of life. go take a bath euro-trash.

button it carga!

Cargawar said...

@Roger & The Mosher: who cares?
I was around 10 in 1981.
At least I got to see the best of US bands when I grew older AND our euro trash of which you seem to be extremely jealous of.
Btw: these bands mentioned weren't all that great.

Again: I saw thousands of bands. I demand a piece of my own @ DCXX!

roger nyhc said...

wait a minute, did i understand that correctly? are you saying that i am "extremely jealous" of the euro hc scene? you are joking right? yeah, that might be the funniest comment i've ever read on this site. this carga guy is a real crack up!

PUNISHER said...

"carga" - fuck off fruitbag. you've brought nothin but stupid comments and criticisms to this site in my time following it. move on.

PUNISHER said...

actually, come to think of it, "cargawar" - who the fuck are you? please, humor me. if you are gonna run your mouth, especially on a dude like mike judge, tell me you can at least bring some heat. i dont think you can. pony up nancy boy.

Cargawar said...

As a matter of fact: Mike Judge has been my hero ever since I heard the first 7".
Much respect for the man.

I ain't saying these bands are crap though. I'm saying it's fucking loony tune to worship some guy's visited-show list. Get a life wanker.
And no, I'm not saying this to Mike.
