Minor Threat Won, Nike Negative Three
Pitchfork and others gave the whole Minor Threat Nike controversy enough coverage, but after reading a great piece on Young Manhattanite, I motivated to write this post and expand even further on Nike’s recent losses.
NIKE 0: “It’s amazing to me how so many smart people simply don’t get it, are defending Nike, and making sweeping generalizations about what “punk” is.” [Young Manhattanite]
NIKE -1: Nike pretends to come to CBGBs rescue. [me]
NIKE -2: “If you weren’t aware, the NIKEiD studio on Elizabeth St. is invitation only, despite looking like a regular retail shoe boutique from the outside.” [Tale of Two Cities]
NIKE -3: “Then the blogger contest started and I got more pissed off.” [jen beckman]
