"Ranks up there with the great rock & roll books of all time."--Time Out New York

"Lurid, insolent, disorderly, funny, sometimes gross, sometimes mean and occasionally touching . . . Resounds with authenticity."--The New York Times

"No volume serves juicier dish on punk's New York birth . . . Tales of sex, drugs and music that will make you wish you'd been there."--Rolling Stone

A contemporary classic, Please Kill Me is the definitive oral history of the most nihilistic of all pop movements. Iggy Pop, Richard Hell, the Ramones, and scores of other punk figures lend their voices to this decisive account of that explosive era. This 20th anniversary edition features new photos and an afterword by the authors.

"Utterly and shamelessly sensational."--Newsday

  • Essential reading for any serious music fan.

    I was alive for the birth of the punk movement but far too young to be aware of it. This book completely remedies that situation, immersing you in the squalor, boredom and malaise that lay at the heart of the New York genesis of punk. Giving voice to the now household names such as Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, it gives equal weight to the cast of other creatives that formed the movement. Read it alongside Jon Savage's classic "England's Dreaming" and you will come as close to possible as being there.
