The Rough Guide to Punk casts a sneering glance at the musicians, fashions, icons and record labels behind the sub-culture that revolutionized pop music. The guide includes profiles of more than 250 artists, from legends such as the Sex Pistols and X-Ray Spex to contemporary stars like Green Day and Babyshambles. There are critical reviews of landmark albums and classic singles, plus the lowdown on everything from safety pins and bondage trousers to venues like The Roxy and CBGBs. The guide comes complete with recommended playlists of the best, loudest and angriest slices of punk waiting to be downloaded to your iPod or MP3 player.

I reccomed any music fan to read the rough guide series they have rock punk metal and rap.it is well researched. I am a music historian so i can appreciate the writing and research .some things in the book are not facts The Police was not a punk band only a few songs were in the early days and a few other bands listed are to mainstream to be in this book under punk, but the information on each artist is great even bands i don't know much about.this is a great read for anyone who wants to learn about music history this book is mostly on punk rock of the 1970's from New York To London.it is a great read for any music lover or musician !
