Description by OLDIES.com:

Whether it was the green-haired Johnny Rotten leaping and snarling on a London stage or the leather-jacketed Ramones bashing out three-chord mayhem in a dark and dingy Lower East Side club, punk rock was out to change the world. Born of fury and disgust at the consumerism and musical excess of the 1970s, punk exploded onto the scene, stripping rock down to its raw essence and making music dangerous again. Since then, punk has continued to pound the drums for the antiestablishment, with small knots of determined punks continuing to start their own bands, labels, and zines. These flagbearers of the modern punk revolution are following the trail blazed by such legends of punk such as Blag Flag, Joe Strummer, Green Day, X Ray Spex, Darby Crash, Jello Biafra, Bad Brains, Stiff Little Fingers, Suicidal Tendencies, and countless others. In this authoritative, heavily illustrated guide, veteran punk and pop culture/ media scholar, Brian Cogan, Ph.D., sheds light on punk's underground world of antiestablishment music and political activism.

Product Description:

When people think of punk they often think of outrageous fashion and iconic bands like The Ramones and the Sex Pistols. But the reality of punk stretches over three decades and numerous countries, with a history as rich and varied as it is shocking and daring. With this lavishly illustrated and authoritative A-Z guide, now in a new format, Brian Cogan leads readers through the fiery history of a furious, rebellious, contradictory, and boundary-redefining musical genre and cultural movement that remains as massively influential as it is wildly misunderstood. As The Encyclopedia of Punk clearly proves, punk music and culture has produced a rich trove of material, above and beyond the hundreds of bands, from books and films to incendiary political movements.
