‘The Ian MacKaye’: DC eatery ‘ironically’ names burger after noted vegan
10:27 am


Ian MacKaye

Satellite Room in Washington, DC has a new menu of burgers that have been named after notable local musical heros. They’ve got burgers named after Henry Rollins, Donald Byrd, Joan Jett, GoGo great Chuck Brown, Dave Grohl and Big Tony. There’s even a plain burger on a bun in honor of Kenny G.

That’s funny, but why did they have to go and name a six-ounce burger topped with chicken liver after noted vegan, Fugazi frontman Ian MacKaye?

Via the Washington Post’s Going Out Guide blog:

“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!”

What a juvenile way to drum up publicity. Annoying enough that it would cause me to avoid this place (and I’m not a vegan).

Henry Rollins working at Häagen-Dazs, 1981

Fun photos of Henry Rollins (and Ian MacKaye) back when he worked at a Häagen-Dazs, circa 1981.

Apparently Henry was a model employee at his Washington D.C. area Häagen-Dazs franchise. He was promoted to assistant manager!

Probably bullshit wealth-tracking website declares Ian MacKaye to be worth $25 Million
06:08 am


Ian MacKaye

Well la-di-da, Mr Moneybags!
According to The Richest, earnest punk rocker Ian MacKaye is supposed to be worth $25 million. First of all, there’s no doubt in my mind that this is just a number they pulled out of their asses. I can’t imagine Ian MacKaye boasting about his net worth.

Second, the only purpose I can possibly imagine for publishing this “information” is rage bait, but it’s just not doing it for me. I get that I’m supposed to feel betrayed or something, but I just can’t bring myself to care if Ian MacKaye made a bunch of money from Fugazi or Dischord Records or Apple stock. I mean, is it even liquid? Is it wrapped in a bunch of investments? Are those investments in the music business, or does Ian MacKaye own a bunch of Subway® sandwich shop franchises? Because that would be a much more awesome story.

Below, MacKaye’s short-lived band Embrace performs “Money,” 1986:
