"Legendary punk label Dischord Records has entire catalog online for free

Did you know that the entire 40-year catalog of the punk rock label of note, Dischord, is available on Bandcamp for free streaming? While free, they're hoping listeners will download the music to support the artists. Bandcamp is waving their sales fees on certain days each month so that all of the money will go to the artists.
