This node includes the name of every band that has released anything (even one song on one compilation) on Dischord Records. It also includes the names of all the musicians and the instruments they play, listed by band and by individual. Two separate lists – both in alphabetical order. You may ask, "Why would you spend 20 hours compiling such a list?!" Well, I’m a huge Dischord Records fan for one, but I’ve always felt that many of the bands on the label sound alike and I wanted to know why. As you’ll be able to see from these lists, many of the same people are in many bands, hence the "Dischord sound". I hope at least one other person out there will find this as enlightening to read as it was for me to compile.

Please note: these bands may have released other CDs, records, etc. on other labels as well, so don't consider this a complete discography on any of these bands. This is a complete discography for Dischord Records, as of July, 2001. So, when I say "first release" or "second release", this may not be the band's actual first release, but it is their first release on Dischord Records.
