Punk Rock Monday

By a happy coincidence, this is also the 1000th post at medulla noodle (1/10th of which actually qualify as "substantive and nutritious"). So, whatever one does to celebrate these events, knock yourself out.

Delving back in to the sXe scene, I got a chuckle watching these old 7 Seconds clips.

"Young 'Til I Die":

And finally, as 7 Seconds took a turn towards U2 in the late 80s, "Rock Together, Walk Together":
