7. Fugazi (1993)

In late September of 1993, Fugazi was set to perform three sold out shows. The band had no problem selling out these shows and although they were famous for being anti-popular, it did not stop Atlantic Records president Ahmet Ertegun from trying (more like begging) the group to sign a pretty fat contract backstage. He offered the band a $10 million contract, along with their own subsidiary label, and just about anything else they could have possibly wanted. Fugazi declined the offer and went on with the show. This moment went down in Roseland Ballroom history as Fugazi didn’t even bat an eye at the $10 million, and went on to give their fans the show they anxiously waited for.
