Our Band Could Be Your Life

Many consider Michael Azerrad's "Our Band Could be Your Life" to be the codifying work on the rise of American indie rock. With chapters devoted to 13 bands that challanged rock convention in the years before Nirvana brought the sound to the mainstream, "Our Band Could be Your Life" uses their stories to weave a broader narrative of how underground rock evolved through a decade and change. In this crate, we offer a single album from each of the profiled bands from the genre-defining hardcore of Minor Threat and Black Flag to the thoughtful noisescapes of Dinosaur Jr. and Sonic Youth.
