I found an old Michael Azerad post

Punks not Dead…it just goes to bed at a more reasonable hour

The post talks about how punk rockers like Henry Rollins, Ian MacKaye, Mike Watt, etc took punk rock from a knee-jerk level to something that meant living a lifestyle and understanding what’s happening in the world around you.

Azerad’s book, Our Band Could Be Your Life, also talked about the history behind each of these people’s bands and more.

I’m throwing in Beat Happening for good measure too, because Calvin Johnson has done the most for the PacNW music scene, more than any single other musician or producer…including Jack Endino.
