Untitled[edit]

High energy band of the straight edge movement. this band did a good cover of Grace Slick's White rabbit -- 65.168.93.64

The article said Negative FX's name was inspired by NOFX. I'm almost positive that Negative FX predates NOFX by at least three or four years, but if someone knows otherwise, please say so. Justin Bailey 15:53, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Deletion[edit]

So is the article being deleted because someone who may have never heard of the band considers them not notable (NN?)?

Slapshot are considered legends in the Boston hardcore scene and have been influential in the hardcore scene in general. Just because you've never heard of them doesn't mean a thing. There are a ton of articles on this site for bands that have no where near the influence as this band.

That being said, the article was written pretty bad, I would agree that it needs to be re-written.--Skeev 13:54, 27 October 2006 (UTC)

Just a note I will be working on a re-write Please feel free to join in. Markco1 00:39, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Notability guidelines[edit]

Under Wikipedia's guidelines for music, Slapshot covers the following.


Has gone on an international concert tour, or a national concert tour in at least one large or medium-sized country,[1] reported in notable and verifiable sources.[2]

According to thier websites and many other hardcore related sites that talk about the band, they've been on many Europeon tours with smaller bands and bands much bigger than them (Ministry, Motorhead). Also, thier album Live At SO36, released on We Bite Records was recorded at the SO36 club in Berlin during thier 1993 tour. It'd be hard to do that and not gone on at least one tour. Also, there is an LP simply called Tour '91 which was a limited release recorded in Wertheim, Germany on thier 1991 tour.

Has released two or more albums on a major label or one of the more important indie labels (i.e. an independent label with a history of more than a few years and a roster of performers, many of which are notable).

Has releases on Century Media Records, Taang! Records and Bridge 9 Records, all labels with a long history.


Has been featured in multiple non-trivial published works in reliable and reputable media (excludes things like school newspapers (although university newspapers are usually fine), personal blogs, etc.)

They were written about in the book All Ages: Reflections on Straight Edge which can be purchased in a large number of places including Amazon. I know that's not "multiple" but since I have other points to stand on I thought I'd mention it.


Has become the most prominent representative of a notable style or the local scene of a city (or both, as in British hip hop); note that the subject must still meet all ordinary Wikipedia standards, including verifiability.

The fact that the hardcore/punk scene in Boston collaborated in a tribute to the band should represent that they are a representative of that scene and are notable there.

Using these criteria set forth by Wikipedia, I feel that that the "not notable" reason for deletion is unwarranted. A clean-up messgage, perhaps, as it is not the most well written or structured article. It is by far not the worst either.--Skeev 20:46, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Working on Re-Write[edit]

Wikipedia:WikiProject Boston is working on a re-write of this article. I know a bit about this band but am looking for any input that can be added. Please discuss below and add/or delete what ever you feel fit -- Markco1 13:29, 24 November 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Slapshot Digital Warfare.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Slapshot Digital Warfare.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Anal Cunt[edit]

I edited this page to include Anal Cunt under the associated acts section, but it was considered vandalism. Jack Kelly has written & appeared on several Anal Cunt songs. Seth Putnam has appeared on Slapshot songs also.

Hey! Thanks for your edit, I realise that you included this in good faith, and the other editor reverted it because he thought that it was vandalism, you can understand why! Anal Cunt has a very unfortunate name! Hope this cleared it up for you. Regards, Captain n00dle T/C 16:21, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
