For comparison purposes, check out the two photos side by side.

While some fans immediately began hoping for a reunion with the original lineup, Baker cleared up any confusion in a story with WTOP.

“This is a non-story,” Baker says. “Jeff insists that we always take a porch shot for posterity when the four of us are at Dischord. This is just the first one we’ve had taken since I’ve had an Instagram account.”

Salad Days is the final record from Minor Threat. Released in July of 1985, Salad Days is composed of three songs.

You can listen to the three tracks from the record below.
