Our Band Could Be Your Life
Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991
Michael Azerrad



Finally in paperback, the story of the musical revolution that happened right under the nose of the Reagan Eighties when a small but sprawling network of bands, labels, fanzines, radio stations, and other subversives re-energized American rock with punk rocks do-it-yourself credo and created music that was deeply personal, often brilliant, always challenging, and immensely influential. Our Band Could Be Your Life is a sweeping chronicle of music, politics, drugs, fear, loathing, and faith that is already being recognized as an indie rock classic in its own right. Among the legendary bands Azerrad writes about: Black Flag, the Minutemen, Mission of Burma, Minor Threat, Husker Du, the Replacements, Sonic Youth, Butthole Surfers, Big Black, Dinosaur Jr., Fugazi, Mudhoney, and Beat Happening. The story of the American indie underground has never been told in depth until now.
