My Riot: Agnostic Front, Grit, Guts & Glory

by Roger Miret and Jon Wiederhorn

This is the story of Roger Miret, who led hardcore punk / thrash band Agnostic Front to fame in the 80s. He writes about fleeing Cuba with his family and growing up poor in a violent family and rough neighborhood. As a squatter in his teens, he met his bandmates and they played a key part in the building of the new hardcore scene in New York City. Punk didn't pay, and he ended up in prison for selling drugs. He figured things out eventually and lived to write this book about his tough life and key role in an iconic scene.
