Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991 
by Michael Azerrad 
Paperback – Illustrated, July 2, 2002

 

Our Band Could Be Your Life is the never-before-told 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's do-it-yourself credo and created music that was deeply personal, often brilliant, always challenging, and immensely influential. This sweeping chronicle of music, politics, drugs, fear, loathing, and faith is an indie rock classic in its own right.

 

The bands profiled include:
Sonic Youth
Black Flag
The Replacements
Minutemen
Husker Du
Minor Threat
Mission of Burma
Butthole Surfers
Big Black
Fugazi
Mudhoney
Beat Happening
Dinosaur Jr.
