The definitive study of heavy metal culture that "does for metal what Greil Marcus's Lipstick Traces did for the Sex Pistols" (-Chicago Sun-Times).

Library Journal

This is one of the few books that provides a serious study of this most loud and rebellious form of rock'n'roll. Beginning with pioneers such as Black Sabbath in the early 1970s, Weinstein traces the roots of the music and the bands who played it, from England's hardcore headbangers to their American counterparts plus a lot of the lightweight pretty-boy bands of the 1980s.
