    Feh... Well written, but I have no real affinity for any of the bands covered here other than Social Distortion, who only merit a handful of pages. Now if Ian Winwood could flesh that out into an entire book, that would really be something! "...prior to Green Day and The Offspring, ...

    Required reading. An essential survey of some of the greatest music ever made and a thorough telling of a watershed moment in music history. What?s more, the author gives credit where credit is due to the greatest band in the universe: ??most of these events, and perhaps all of t...

    Exhaustive and opinionated, this tracks the second wave punk scene from grubby dives to stadiums with a passion and knowledge that makes me want to hear all those albums and bands I'd missed. My only gripe is how the book just suddenly cuts out at 1995 with an epitaph (no pun intended)...

    As somewhat of a note to myself, I listened to this as an audiobook. When I was in middle school, I wasn't really into music at all. When day when I was riding the bus, I saw the band name "Green Day" vandalized into the bus. I had heard of the band before, but had no idea what they...

    I was eager to read this because its subject is due for comprehensive revisiting. I have not read any other Ian Winwood books, and unfortunately I am not eager to after this. In terms of content, information and detail, it is a great idea. But the author refuses to get out of his own w...

    A very fun ride for those who love the genre and grew up listening to certain bands. The author unleashes names, places, and facts in a way similar to an epic journey and gives a chronological perspective to the events. There is a lot of Green Day, the entire origin story of Epitap...

    Meh, 1/3 interesting early years stuff 1/3 justifying the bands not selling out 1/3 rise to fame. I think there's too many stories to be told here resulting in everything not quite being enough. ...

    Very interesting, for a fan For a fan of Punk, especially mid-90's US Punk, it's a very entertaining read. Most of the stories are already well known but it's nice to read a chronological story, pulling it all together. Having said that... Whilst it's understandable that the book...
