The Suicide Commandos


The Suicide Commandos pull out all the stops as they perform at First Avenue to honor the late Bruce Allen, guitarist for The Suburbs. Chris Osgood, Dave Ahl, and Steve Almaas discuss the band’s early days and their take-no-prisoners approach to producing the songs “Attacking the Beat” and “Burn it Down.” Though only together 4 years, The Suicide Commandos are considered pioneers who jump-started the Twin Cities punk rock music scene which eventually produced bands like The Suburbs, Hüsker Dü, The Replacements and Soul Asylum.

This segment aired as part of MN Original Episode #214.
