Minor Threat was an American hardcore punk band, formed in Washington, D.C. in 1980 and disbanded in 1983. The band was relatively short-lived, but had a strong influence on the hardcore punk scene, both stylistically and in establishing a "do it yourself" (DIY) ethic for music distribution and concert promotion.

Minor Threat's song "Straight Edge" became the eventual basis of the straight edge movement, while the band often professed their own "straight edge" ideals. Allmusic described Minor Threat's music as "iconic," and noted that their groundbreaking music "has held up better than [that of] most of their contemporaries.

Along with the fellow Washington, D.C. hardcore band Bad Brains and California band Black Flag, Minor Threat set the standard for many hardcore punk bands in the 1980s and 1990s. All of Minor Threat's recordings were released on Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson's own label, Dischord Records. The Minor Threat EP and their only full-length studio album Out of Step have received a number of accolades and are cited as landmarks of the hardcore punk genre.

First Two 7"s on a 12" (also known as the Minor Threat LP) was a compilation album by the American hardcore punk band Minor Threat. It was released in March 1984 through Dischord Records. The compilation consisted of the group's first two extended plays, Minor Threat (originally released June 1981) and In My Eyes (originally released December 1981).

First Two 7"s on a 12" featured the same cover as the Minor Threat EP, depicting vocalist Ian MacKaye's younger brother Alec (Untouchables, The Faith). The image has been imitated by punk bands such as Rancid on their album ...And Out Come the Wolves and in the Major Threat ad campaign by Nike.

Heavy with bass, angry vocals, intense beat and cymbals, and distortion First Two 7"s on a 12" is the embodiment of a small yet powerful movement in the punk-rock community called the "straight-edge movement." It opposed a Dionysian culture that concerned itself with drugs and other sensuality. Minor Threat tried to establish a philosophy that would rally the humanity to question their motives and try to rethink their approach to life. What they did instead was revolutionize rock.

Both stylistically and musically, current punk-rock bands mimic their "can-do" spirit that seemed to oppose everyone besides themselves. Songs such as "In My Eyes" directly oppose the concept of peer-pressure. "Out of Step (with the World)" further explains what Minor Threat opposes, which becomes almost an anthem for the straight-edge movement

Their lyricism is about straight edge most times, but stripped down its about the power of freedom of opinion and choice. That is the base of punk rock.
