Publisher's Summary

A sharp, comedic send-up of punk and hardcore culture, from the creators of the popular and critically-lauded satire site The Hard Times.

The Hard Times: The First 40 Years is the first book from The Hard Times, the Internet’s favorite music satire site. Often referred to as “The Onion for punk rock”, the site has developed a sizable, devoted following for its razor-sharp takes on underground music and alternative culture. And with headlines like “Man Magically Transforms into Music Historian While Talking to Women” and “Pretentious Friend Only Listens to Podcasts on Vinyl”, you don’t have to be a punk rock die-hard to appreciate their hilarious commentary.

Now, in this ’zine-style “historical retrospective”, the writers behind the site document its development alongside the rise of punk rock, with original articles from their "archives" commenting upon ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s punk, and site-specific fan favorites from the aughts-onward. With its unique aesthetic and laugh-out-loud humor, The Hard Times will be the perfect gift audiobook for music nerds and pop culture devotees everywhere.
