Legs McNeil, co-founder of the seminal publication Punk Magazine, is widely credited for introducing the term "punk" into the mainstream lexicon. This book analyzes the punk phenomenon through first-hand "oral history" anecdotes from many of the people who were intimately involved in the scene, including Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, David Mapplethorpe, Lou Reed, Debby Harry and Dee Dee Ramone, among others.
