FINALLY! A book that has all my favorite bands. Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Dinosaur Jr., Butthole Surfers, Mission of Burma, Minor Threat etc. This is the best book you can read for music. I recommend it to anybody who likes Punk Rock or even just any kind of music.

Basically Azerad does a mini-bio of most of the punk bands and underground indie bands. The most interesting part, is he is basically questioning how Nirvana came out of nowhere and became one of America's most popular bands ever and surpassed Michael Jackson's Thriller.

The strong part of this book is he writes a hell of a lot about underground bands that never really made it, and after reading about them I wish they could've.

Great book. I recommend it to any music fan.
