Dischord Records is a Washington, D.C. independent record label born right here on Beecher Street in 1980. The label focuses on the independent punk music scene in the Washington area and offers musicians an alternative to major labels. By empowering local musicians who would not otherwise have an outlet for their music, Dischord Records has created a powerful community around its label, and a strong music scene in the metropolitan area.
