History Paperback Textbooks Publication Year. User Review — Flag as inappropriate Terrible book; self absorbed, intellectual above and beyond a flaw, frankly he takes the idea that good music comes from good taste and good ideals and amplifies it times, basically claiming that no band that anyone likes can really be good, so he finds solace in obscure and frankly terrible bands and music, while bashing bands like Radiohead and the Beatles.
