YMMV: The Minutemen

  • Black Sheep Hit/Signature Song: Thanks to Jackass, their most well-known song is "Corona," the show's theme song, which has more of a polka feel than their usual punk/post-punk output.
  • More Popular Spin-off: George Hurley, Mike Watt, and D. Boon were initially in a band called The Reactionaries, which was essentially The Minutemen with Martin Tamburovich on lead vocals.
  • Magnum Opus: Many fans and critics consider theirs to be Double Nickels on the Dime. Mike Watt himself has also called it his favorite album he played bass on.
  • Memetic Mutation: Mike Watt's flannel. Later on, this was sort of referenced by fIREHOSE's Flyin' The Flannel, which fittingly featured a closeup of a flannel shirt on the cover.
  • Sampled Up: "Get Out" by Sublime samples the drum intro to "It's Expected I'm Gone". The drum part to Nirvana's "Scentless Apprentice" is also suspiciously similar. The drum part was used yet again by Pinback in their song "Hurley", named after George Hurley.
