- "In the 1950s it was the beats. In the 1960s it was the hippies. In the 1970s it was the punks, the next utterly unique, music-fueled subculture to reject the world set out before them - with a vengeance - and in so doing, change that world in unforgettable, unpredictable ways." "Unlike other volumes on the punk era that focus on just the music - and primarily on British punk bands - Punks: A Guide to an American Subculture spans the full expanse of punk as it happened in the United States, from the late-1960s blast of Iggy Pop and the Stooges to the full explosion of punk in the mid 1970s to its next-generation resurgences and continuing aftershocks." "Readers will see how punk spread virally, through fan-created magazines, record labels, clubs, and radio stations, as well as how mainstream America reacted, then absorbed aspects of punk culture. The book includes interviews with key members of the punk subculture, including new conversations with people who participated in the punk scene in the 1970s and 1980s."--BOOK JACKET.
