Episode 231: Death

In 1971, history was made when brothers Bobby, Dannis, and David Hackney got together to jam, and inadvertently "created" punk music in the process. That history wouldn't be discovered until almost 40 years later, and having their story told in the documentary A Band Called Death in 2013the group is touring again, making new music, and finding new fans everywhere they turn.

More importantly, their story has now been recognized by the recently opened National Museum of African American History in Washington, DC, where a piece of their legend is now a permanent exhibit in the latest addition to the Smithsonian.

We caught up with the band the weekend of the museum's opening to talk about their history, their legacy, and so much more.
