It is truly hard to knock such a statement, no matter how needlessly verbose it is in this case. The legacy of the likes of Dischord Records and indeed DC Punk, Hardcore and Post-Hardcore, in general, has shaped modern music irrevocably and from trace amounts to full-frontal emulation and adoration.
