Ian MacKaye

I thought maybe this story ended with a twist where we find out this is fake meat and mock chicken liver topped with an egg subsitute, but nope. The Washington Post reports:

[DC restaurant] Satellite Room has a new menu of burgers inspired by D.C. notables, including one which won't sound so delicious to its namesake. Inspired by a banh mi, the Ian MacKaye is a six-ounce beef patty with chicken liver mousse, pickled daikon and carrot, cilantro aioli and, for $1, an egg. But here's the thing: The Dischord Records founder and legendary Minor Threat and Fugazi frontman is a vegan.

"I've never been to [Satellite Room] (in fact, never really heard of it) and wasn't aware that there was a sandwich bearing my name being offered until yesterday," MacKaye wrote in an e-mail. "[I] would hope that regardless if it bears my name or someone else's, that they have at least one vegan option!"

For $1 extra, diners can replace the beef burger with a black bean patty, but a restaurant spokesperson said the patty is vegetarian, not vegan.

Other burgers on the menu include the Dave Grohl, Henry Rollins, Joan Jett, and the Kenny G.

Speaking of Henry Rollins and Ian MacKaye, both are heavily featured and interviewed in the great new documentary "Riot On the Dance Floor" about NJ club City Gardens, which we screened in NYC last week. Check that film out when you have the chance, and check out some photos from our post-screening Q&A on Facebook.

Could you imagine if someone named a beef hamburger after John Joseph after Cro-Mags? He'd flip out LOL.

The H.R. - Burnt, don't blow no beef bubbles, don't blow no hamburger buns

And yes, they should go ahead and name a triple-decker big beefy burger after John Joseph.

They should rename the Boilermaker after Ian MacKaye because that's what he drinks all day, every day. Fuckin alky.

The JJ

John Joseph-Harley Flanagan Cro-Mags Beef Burger

The Beef Ain't Over Burger (some will get it, most will not)

Here's one:

The John Joseph - No meat, just the bun, lettuce, onion, and tomato because meat is murder, causes colon cancer, and heart disease.

Oh wait, no lettuce, onion, or tomato because Monsanto grows them.

Oh wait, no bun either because it promotes the idea of putting a burger on it yo.

nice knit hat Ian. how'd you like the new Speedy Otriz?

MacKaye doesn't sound angry, he sounds amused, although who knows? I'm guessing he's laughing about it and maybe he knows the owner/s and they're busting his balls?

Wow that hat of his looks ridiculous.

What is Ian's net worth? I know it's at least $1M. Approximate or exact figure.

Does he live at the Dischord house or is that just where the label business is conducted? I forgot.

^ How so? I need a laugh.

^ oh, come now, an attitude like that will not get you to where you want to go in life. negative expectations yields negative results. let's start again, only this time try to be more positive, more expectant of good things.

and another thing, eat a bag of dicks you angry cop piss breath

^ Looks like the only negative, angry person is you, dickface. Also paranoid that I'm a cop - I bet you deal weed lol.

You made a dumbass comment out of your ass, I humored you and asked you to elaborate, and you come back with your nonsense, flabbergasted haha bitch.

2:33 here. It's a reference to a Fugazi song with fairly apropos lyrics. 3:59 was someone else.
