In 1977, the Sex Pistols burst on the scene with "Anarchy in the UK" and transformed pop music forever. Along with that song, every one of these singles helped reshape the culture's style, language, and performance. This is the story of how music and the world change, how bands reach a peak and dominate the scene briefly before fading away, and about the undeniable power of certain songs (Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," for example). Here are punk and grunge, disco and rock, funk and electronica, rap and hip-hop. Every incisive, illuminating, and outspoken
essay defies the accepted view of music journalism. From Elvis Costello's "Alison" and The Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive" to Bjork's "Hyperballad" and Missy Elliot's "The Rain", it's a truly provocative read.
