The notion of “Practical Rebellion”, as I define it, is “standing up for what you think is right without concerns for style, fashion, or making broad, generic statements”. This is why I think Fugazi is the ultimate punk band. They don’t fit the definition of “punk” in your mind as, say, The Sex Pistols would. In fact Fugazi and its members were all rather plain, each wearing t-shirts and jeans while sporting dull haircuts. But they broke more new ground in the indie music scene than most other bands you can name. Plus it’s more inspiring than the “Everything is Lame” mentality you usually fall into when you’re a teenager.
