Can I Say is the debut album by the American melodic hardcore band Dag Nasty, originally released in 1986 on Dischord Records. It was remastered and re-released on CD with bonus songs in 2002.[2] The album includes the band's classic "Under Your Influence". This song was actually written for Minor Threat as part of a contest. This winning entry was never recorded by Minor Threat, as they broke up before that happened. The song became part of Dag Nasty's repertoire with its background explained by Dag Nasty live in Berkeley, CA at 924 Gilman Street on June 10, 1988. At the same gig the original songwriters performed the song with the band.[3]
