LIVE SESSION: Minor Threat – “In My Eyes”

LIVE SESSION: Minor Threat – “In My Eyes”.

“In My Eyes” is an anti-drug song which has been covered by rap metal band Rage Against the Machine, among others. Along with “Straight Edge” and “Out of Step”, “In My Eyes” helped to solidify views of Minor Threat as a band with an anti-drug platform. Unlike the original “Straight Edge”, a relatively standard hardcore composition, each verse of “In My Eyes” seethes with anger and contempt, building up to the cathartic release of the chorus.

Song from the EP “In My Eyes”, originally released December 1981.
