Brian Baker, formerly of Minor Threat, formed Dag Nasty with Colin Sears, Roger Marbury and Shawn Brown in 1985.Shortly before the recording of their debut full-length, Can I Say, Shawn was replaced on vocals by ex-DYS frontman, Dave Smalley, kicking off a revolving door membership that would continue throughout the duration of the band, ultimately leaving Brian as the only original member.
Dag Nasty recorded Can I Say in June 1986, and Wig Out at Denkos in July 1987, for Dischord Records before moving to Giant Records for the release of Field Day in 1988. The Can I Say line-up reformed in 1992 to record Four on the Floor for Epitaph Records and again in 2002 to record a full-length for Revelation Records.
In November 2010 Dischord released the long shelved Dag With Shawn recording session, featuring the original Dag Nasty line-up with Shawn Brown on vocals. This is essentially the same album that was later re-recorded and released as Can I Say.
