"American Hardcore sets the record straight about the last great American subculture"—Paper magazine
Steven Blush's "definitive treatment of Hardcore Punk" (Los Angeles Times) changed the way we look at Punk Rock. The Sony Picture Classics–distributed documentary American Hardcore premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. This revised and expanded second edition contains hundreds of new bands, thirty new interviews, flyers, a new chapter ("Destroy Babylon"), and a new art gallery with over 125 rare photos and images.
Hardcore, the hard-edged second generation of punk rock, whose peak period ranged from 1980 to 1986, has never before been captured in the way Steven Blush's authoritative, extensively illustrated oral history has. Angrier, less pretentious and more stripped-down than its artsy, drug-addled predecessor, this harder-faster form of music was never very pretty - an angry and violent outlet for unfocused rage. American Hardcore: A Tribal History not only recapitulates an important and influential scene, its provocative sociological snapshots reveal a singular time in music history.
In this comprehensive look at the music and culture behind the hardcore legacy, Steven Blush blends his own first-hand experience of the scene with interviews, photographs and complete discographies.
