Book Notes, Review & Summary

Fargo Rock City by Chuck Klosterman

Klosterman's Fargo Rock City - A Heavy Metal Odyssey in Rural North Dakota, shows us just how pervasive and widespread pop metal's reach was, bringing a little bit of the Sunset Strip to North Dakota and beyond.

For the Glam & Hair Metal lover, this book reads faster than Sunday Morning comics. Remember those? They were big when Glam & Hair Metal were big.

Fargo Rock City Chapters

At 15 years old, Fargo Rock City: A Heavy Metal Odyssey in Rural North Dakota holds up pretty well in our eyes. Then again, calling Bush a, "... good band who just happened to signal the beginning of the end; ultimately, they would become the grunge Warrant.", doesn't hurt either.

Because that's good analysis. And it reads like a near 300 pages of nostalgia mixed with good insight and analysis.
