about

Empirically proving that—no matter where you are—kids wanna rock, this is Chuck Klosterman''s hilrious memoir of growing up as a shameless metalhead in Wyndmere, North Dakotoa (population: 498).

With a voice like Ace Frehley''s guitar, Klosterman hacks his way through hair-band history, beginning with that fateful day in 1983 when his older brother brought home Mötley Crüe''s Shout at the Devil. The fifth-grade Chuck wasn''t quite ready to rock—his hair was too short and his farm was too quiet—but he still found a way to bang his nappy little head. Before the journey was over, he would slow-dance to Poison, sleep innocently beneath satanic pentagrams, lust for Lita Ford, and get ridiculously intellectual about Guns N'' Roses. C''mon and feel his noize.
Chuck Klosterman, currently a music, film, & culture critic for Ohio's "Akron Beacon Journal", began his career with "The Forum" in Fargo, North Dakota. He lives in Akron, Ohio, where he once consumed nothing but McDonald's Chicken McNuggets for seven straight days.
