Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

The Ramones kick-started the punk movement and changed rock history. Now, on the 40th anniversary of their critically acclaimed debut album, comes the first fully illustrated color coffee-table book on the legendary band. Written by veteran music journalist Martin Popoff, The Ramones at 40 explodes with visuals and offers fresh, thoughtful writing, stand-alone features, interviews, and a full discography. It covers the groupandrsquo;s early days and the CBGB crowd, classic albums and rarities, European tours, critical reception, politics, induction into the Hall of Fame, effect on pop culture, and so much more. Every Ramones fan will want this on their bookshelf!
