Punk! Hardcore! Reggae! Pma! Bad Brains!
By

Rating
On par with only a select few rock bands, the Bad Brains influenced numerous artists over the years - covering a wide range of styles. This is understandable, as the Bad Brains themselves offered up a variety of sounds since forming in the late '70s (punk, hardcore, reggae, metal, funk, etc.), and in the process, penned some of rock's all-time great tunes ("Pay to Cum," "Sailin' On," "Re-Ignition," "Sacred Love") and classic albums ('Bad Brains, ' 'Rock for Light, ' 'I Against I, ' 'Quickness'). But somehow, someway, the Bad Brains never managed to truly break through to the mainstream - while many of the bands they influenced (Beastie Boys, Living Colour, Nirvana) did. At last, there is a book that tells the story of the band, 'Punk! Hardcore! Reggae! PMA! Bad Brains!' Interviews include Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Max Cavalera (Soulfly/ex-Sepultura), Chad Channing (Nirvana), Bobby Hackney (Death), Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed), Curt Kirkwood (Meat Puppets), Mitts (Madball), Keith Morris (Circle Jerks/ex-Black Flag), Chuck Mosley (ex-Faith No More/ex-Bad Brains), Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan), Travis Stever (Coheed and Cambria), Kim Thayil (Soundgarden), Tesco Vee (Meatmen), and Tim Williams (Vision of Disorder), among many others. Part biography and part oral history, 'Punk! Hardcore! Reggae! PMA! Bad Brains!' helps put it all into perspective.
