Minutemen were not your average Hardcore Punk band. In fact, "Corona" leans more towards Polka-Rock than it does Punk. The double album from which the song is lifted, Double Nickels On The Dime
, is marked for its eclectic sound palette. Nowadays, it is regarded as one of the most influential alternative albums of the 1980s. Minutemen bassist, Mike Watt
told us that Double Nickels...
was "the best record" that he has ever played on: "That was a peak of ours. And now looking back even more so."
