Fugazi was a rock band from Washington, D.C., formed in 1987. Their evolution of the hardcore punk genre, combined with their dedication to touring earned them an international audience by the end of the 1980s, despite little recognition in mainstream circles.
The band name originated from a Vietnam-era U.S. Army slang acronym for a particularly bad combat situation, which stands for "Fucked Up, Got Ambushed, Zipped In". The group reported that they chose the name because of its ambiguous and vaguely exotic qualities.
Perhaps just as well known as the band's music styles was their ethical stance and manner of business practice. Fugazi stood as a rare example of a band that achieved a modest level of mainstream success while remaining loyal to independent recording and distribution values, following a "Do-It-Yourself [DIY] spirit". They rarely charged more than $5–$10 admission to their live shows, insisted that their performances be open to persons of all ages, kept their album prices...
