The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated
Ian MacKaye, the frontman of Minor Threat and Fugazi and founder of Dischord Records, now answers his telephone "I am still alive", after persistent rumours to the contrary. He supposedly died last night at Baltimore's St. Agnes Hospital, but no patient with that name was ever registered. The story first, ah, broke on Myspace and Wikipedia, who have since disabled his entry to prevent further misinformation. Like McCartney before him, MacKaye was said to have died in a car crash.
