One of the most inspiring aspects of Dischord is the fact that it is run by musicians, and there are also many things put in place in order to keep all aspects of the label fair to the fans and to the bands.
Dischord focused on certain aspects like keeping costs of the records down, stating an upfront price on all Dischord releases and a warning to anyone being fleeced by a big corporate chain for marking up a CD.
Selling the records for cheap was an important part of things and there were many records that came out with a 'pay no more than' sticker on the sleeve, whether than in England or the States.

Furthermore, the well thought-out 20 Years of Dischord is a great deal of fun, as it features 50 songs by every band who was ever on the label, a disc of unreleased tracks and a 138-page booklet detailing the history of the label and its roster.
The fact that Dischord was one of the first independent labels, that they've achieved tremendous success without wavering from their initial mission statement, that the label address is still Ian's parents home, and that they still sell their CDs for $10 are all very big fucking deals.
Dischord has succeeded by stubbornly remaining true to the things that have always worked for them, and just as its hard to imagine a world without Dischord, it's also hard to imagine that formula suddenly failing.

 breakmyface.com ~ Dischord Records
Dischord continues with releases to this very day, though the music styles have gone off on every imaginable tangent.
Whether intentional or not, Dischord and its roster set the example for dozens of bands and hundreds of individual punk rockers to follow, whether it be the music style, a way of doing business, or a way of living life.

The first reason, Dischord wanted to mark the point by releasing a special CD-set containing a song by every band ever released on Dischord records plus a special CD with unreleased stuff and a booklet that goes way beyond what is usually called “extensive liner-notes”.
It is also this kind of integrity and principles that made Dischord and Fugazi a symbol in everybody’s mind — and of course, some were opposed: jock punks, rockstars-to-be, corporate rockers and lots of holier-than-thou-preachers tried to rub their backs on Dischord.
For instance there is no mentioning of the various re-formations of Dag Nasty (then again, they don’t touch Dischord) and the whole “straight edge”-thing is only mentioned insofar as the name was coined by Minor Threat and there is also the story of the cross-marked hands found their way to the east-cost.

Dischord will also be releasing a record from Soccer Team, a new collaboration fronted by Ryan Nelson (Routineers, ex-Beauty Pill, ex-Most Secret Method) and Melissa Quinley.
Over the last year Ryan has been recording all kinds of bits and pieces, songs and vignettes in his basement, often inviting Melissa to help him flesh out and contribute ideas.
Although these recordings were intended more for private enjoyment than commercial release once the tapes were shared with us it became clear that this collaboration should see the light of day.

Dischord sells its releases for low mail-order prices, splits the proceeds of the records 50-50 with the bands on the label, and only signs bands from Washington, D.C.

Dischord, and their bands, have always stood for principals far beyond the straight-up cash-in that most music labels represent.
Dischord could then cut whatever deal they wanted (from choosing to give the rights for free, to taking a pass and denying usage to Nike.) I consider what Nike did by taking this to be blatant theft of intellectual property.
The kids will still buy their All-Stars, Dischord will still be fighting for independent bands and labels and the DIY ethic, and Nike executives will be laughing all the way to the bank over this inexcusable exploitation of an honest, hard-working record label.

 NPR : A New Generation of Punk at Dischord Records
Many of those earliest D.C. bands recorded for an independent record label called Dischord, founded 25 years ago by Ian MacKaye and Jeff Nelson.
That pioneering label is still alive today, and a new generation of bands are finding a home for their socially conscious, harder-edged style of rock 'n' roll.
Dischord put out its first record in 1980, a 45 rpm recording by the MacKaye/Nelson group Teen Idles called "Minor Disturbance." The band cut, folded and glued each of the thousands of record jackets by hand.

 Theft or homage? (kottke.org)
Nike is catching some shit for appropriating some imagery for one of their skateboarding events from a 1984 album cover by Dischord Records' Minor Threat.
Nike represents just about the antithesis of what Dischord stands for and it makes me sick to my stomach to think they are using this explicit imagery to fool kids into thinking that the general ethos of this label, and Minor Threat in particular, can somehow be linked to Nike's mission.
Seems like a punk label like Dischord should be aware of that but in the above quote they sound more like a big company afraid of losing their intellectual property.
