I simply adored this book. It resonates so vividly and so true to the punk and metal subculture I, too, came of age in.

Interestingly, there have been some movements to ban this book due to its language. To that, all I can say is that those people are missing the message of this book: that some communities have room for everyone, no matter what you look like. This is SO very important on so many levels, the least of which is that no one looks at you funny when you wear psychedelic-flowered leggings to a Napalm Death show.

Open your mind. Accept people for who they are. Don't make them conform.
