Salad Days is the final EP by the American hardcore punk band Minor Threat. It was released in July 1985, two years after the band's breakup, through Dischord Records with the catalog number DIS 015.[3] The EP differs somewhat from the band's previous material.[3] All songs are slower, making a slight departure from the group's hardcore punk style. Tracks "Good Guys" (a cover of a song by The Standells) and "Salad Days" both feature an acoustic guitar, and "Salad Days" also has chimes.[1] Like many of Minor Threat's recordings, Salad Days has never been released on CD, but all the songs are available on their 1989 compilation album Complete Discography.
