Nike SB apologizes to Minor Threat!

This is a very, very good move on Nike’s part. Really says a lot about their maturity and integrity to have apologized to Minor Threat and Dischord. If you didn’t know what was up, Nike SB had a skate tour they dubbed “Major Threat” and rehashed the cover of Minor Threat’s famous 1984 self-titled album for the tour poster artwork. It really irked a lot of people because it was done so without Minor Threat/Dischord’s permission. The only thing I’m not sure about is Nike SB claiming a bit of ignorance. I mean, how could they not realize this would be a problem. Honestly…Anyways, respect to Nike SB for taking the right approach to this, and more respect to Minor Threat/Dischord for, well, being Minor Threat and Dischord.

Also, Nike SB: If anyone from there is reading this, please take my suggestion and do a skate tour based off of either a Gorilla Biscuits cover or a Cat Stevens cover. OK!
