Ian MacKaye Net Worth $25 Million

American singer, songwriter, guitarist, musician, label owner, and producer,Ian Thomas Garner MacKaye comes with an estimated net worth of $25 million. Produced on April 16, 1962, and raised in Washington, D.C., MacKaye detected his love of music via multiple screenings of the popular movie documentary Woodstock. But it was a stint in Palo Alto, CA, that would indirectly change the course of MacKaye’s life. MacKaye’s father had won a fellowship at Stanford University, and so the family packed up for California, staying for nine months in 1974. When MacKaye returned back to D.C., he was appalled to see that most of his old pals had transformed into drug-have juvenile delinquents. Instead of just following the crowd, MacKaye rebelled against it (MacKaye soon found a kindred spirit in another D.C. youth, Henry Garfield, who would one day change his name to Henry Rollins). Although MacKaye was an avid devotee of hard rock music (Led Zeppelin, Ted Nugent, etc.), it was only when he discovered punk rock that he eventually determined that he needed to give music a try himself. Active since 1979, MacKaye is best known for being the frontman of the influential hardcore punk band Minor Threat, the post-hardcore groups Embrace and Fugazi, together with The Evens.He is a cofounder and owner of Dischord Records, a Washington, D.C.-based independent record label.
