This song, one of Minutemen's longest, combines elements of funk and punk. Double Nickels on the Dime
, Minutemen's third studio album, is renowned for its expansive sound palette. It is widely regarded as one of the most influential albums of the 1980s. In our interview with Watt
, he reflected on the record with great pride: "Double Nickels...
is probably the best record I've ever played on. I didn't realize it while we were making it. The way we were thinking was hills and valleys. People that are around for a while, the journey's full of valleys. That was definitely a hill, we thought. That was a peak of ours. And now looking back even more so."
