NoMeansNo is unique among the genre of hardcore, and probably too talented. Here is their Wilkioedia entry. Featuring the Wright brothers, their skill is among the better among musicians of any genre. Who else would do a song called "Metronome?" Their music is dark, funny and violent (so naturally I'm drawn to it). They are definitely worth going to see live (although, I'm not certain if they play live anymore). They play just like their albums. I can always appreciate a band that is polished in such a manner (as opposed to plastic). Perhaps, that is why NoMeansNo is not more well known?

Crime Pays When Pigs Die is worth owning.
