Washington DC punk pioneers FUGAZI are to be celebrated with a new tribute album this Autumn. And Vive Le Rock is premiering a track from it!
One of THE most influential and inspiring bands of the 80s US punk scene, Fugazi took hardcore and ran with it, creating sharp and incisive new forms and driving the DIY and straight-edge ethos that underpinned punk for decades to come.
Spread across a limited edition double-CD package, Silence Is A Dangerous Sound: A Tribute To Fugazi features 43 tracks from 43 of the bands that Fugazie inspired.

"I first heard Fugazi and Repeater in the early '90s and was blown away," says band-member Steve Rawles. "The rawness of the music, the lyrics, and the DIY message was heard loud and clear. We're so thankful to be able to put our spin on 'Styrofoam'."
