Even in the cheesiest of post-60s era teen flicks, the disaffected hero's battle to get the girl pits him against a slew of seven-ply skaters, jean jacket punks and basement DJs ripped straight from real life. Live...Suburbia! catalogs these American subcultures through the 1990s with essays and images from authors Anthony Pappalardo and Max G. Morton with contributions from JJ Gonson, Gail Rush, Rusty Moore, Ryan Murphy, London May and dozens more. From the earliest BMX dirt jumps to mohawks to the early KISS Army, the book is a "Best Of" chronicle of the pre-digital age teen (without a John Hughes stamp in sight).
