Max’s Icon: Bad Brains

“It’s like punk rock morphed into what the kids called hardcore…But for us, it was just punk. We just played fast. When you’re young, shit’s competitive. ‘If other people think you’re playing fast, watch this.’ At the time, people were playing at the speed of the Ramones, which wasn’t that fast. Then the youth movement started to build on that.” – Darryl Jenifer, Bad Brains
