Product description

A "Time Out" and "Daily News" Top Ten Book of the Year upon its initial release, "Please Kill Me" is the first oral history of the most nihilist of all pop movements. Iggy Pop, Danny Fields, Dee Dee and Joey Ramone, Malcom McLaren, Jim Carroll, and scores of other famous and infamous punk figures lend their voices to this definitive account of that outrageous, explosive era. From its origins in the twilight years of Andy Warhol s New York reign to its last gasps as eighties corporate rock, the phenomenon known as punk is scrutinized, eulogized, and idealized by the people who were there and who made it happen."

Review quote

Ranks up there with the great rock & roll books of all time. "Time Out New York" This book tells it like it was. It is the very first book to do so. William S. Burroughs Does for the Ramones what the disciples did for Jesus. "LA Weekly" Dishes the crud on everyone . . . candid, inside, and detailed. "The New Yorker" Lurid, insolent, disorderly, funny, sometimes gross, sometimes mean and occasionally touching. "The New York Times" The riotously funny story of New York punk told by those who were there. "Daily News""
