Through hundreds of exclusive and original interviews, Punk USA documents the empire that was built overnight as Lookout launched a teenaged Green Day, sold millions of records, and rode the wave of the second coming of punk rock until it all came crashing down. As punk broke nationally the label went from indie outfit to having more money than it knew how to manage. Kevin Prested chronicles it all, through interviews and a careful combing of the records. This definitive book is perfect for anyone who is curious about the inside scoop on how musical careers are made and unmade.
