I first No Limits (Brutal Master read this book fifteen years ago and liked what the author had to sayI just finished my secondeading today and it s still good a snapshot of what metal and punk were like before Green Day Hot Topic and alternative Liar, Liar radiouined everything And ight before goth burst onto the massesThe story starts with the Bergenfield teen SUICIDE PACT OF 1987 WHERE THE BODIES OF FOUR pact of 1987 where the bodies of four were found in a garage dead from carbon monoxide poisoning The media storm so typical of 80 s DRUGS SATAN METAL hysteria complete with jackass eporters clueless experts and subjects words being twisted against them packed the tragedy into yet another bunch of soundbites about disaffected youth aka losers burnouts dirtbagsthe metalheadsDeciding the truth would be better sussed from the kids themselves since nobody else was giving them a chance to speak Donna Gaines spends the book in Bergenfield hanging out with a bunch of teenagers It s a narrative that shifts between academic analysis memoirs of her own 60 s youth Bergenfield s geography and social background chatting with Billy Milano of SOD subcultural history and just letting the kids talk It makes for some weird jumps in diction but also for a very multi dimensional study she eally breaks it down not just in how these different scenes came to be but also very perceptive in all the possible ways these different scenes came to be but also very perceptive in all the possible ways the troublemakers were actually disempowered marginalized and silenced by adults eally it was all about control Here s the era of conformity laid out in all its grim gloryGaines has gotten some flack for supposedly sensationalizing her entry into these kid. Teenage Wasteland provides memorable portraits of ock and oll kids and shrewd analyses of their interests in heavy metal music and Satanism A powerful indictment of the often manipulative media coverage of youth crises and so called alternative programs designed to help troubled teens Teenage Wasteland draws new conclusions and presents solid easons to admire the esil.

off to me 
to me someone genuinely wanting to help her own subculture s descendants offering up off to me as someone genuinely wanting to help her own subculture s descendants offering up and giving the kids their own platform to speak instead of yet another telltale condescending tome of blame and punishment and dismissal I couldn t help but emember my own Jersey metal youth as I was eading it Anton LaVey on Geraldo Rivera RIP magazine flannel shirts Metallica before MTV And nobody understanding or even trying to It was a time and a place pretty uick with the condemnation which seems almost inconceivable now when vintage Motley Crue shirts go for 200 on eBay and Bret Michaels keeps embarrassing himself on eality televisionWhile the book is not without flaw Sisters of Mercy is not a death metal band it s a good ead on multiple levels as a detailed slice of life from the late 80 s subcultural crossroads and a possible ecommendation to those who enjoy Chuck Klosterman I think this book didn t eally capture teenage suicideburnout culture that well but it painted an excellent portrait of the exact kind of lower middle class town during the late 80 s She has a knack for writing about the sociology of the town not unlike Jeffrey Eugenides Although I vehemently disagree with the white supremacist musician they talked about in the Music is Religion chapter literally where do the minorities get free stuff without asking for it people come from Would it eally kill the flow Ience of suburbia's dead end kidsA powerful book Samuel G Freedman New York Times Book ReviewGaines sheds light on a poorly understood world and aises compelling uestions about what society might do to help this alienated group of young people Ann Grimes Washington Post Book WorldThere is no comparable study of teenage suburban culture and very few ethnographic inuiries. F the chapter to interrupt them and ask for specific examples of legislation Do minority teens not deserve the same epresentation as the white burnouts Gaines covers I guess learning about the music scene before blogs was uniue did none of the kids like Sonic #youth though i liked the positive note it #though I liked the positive note it on even if I ealize most of it just got worse Also I hated all the casual use of the R word Sure it was from the 80 s but I would hope even a social worker back then would think twice about it Do those kids not count Well Teenage Wasteland is irreparably dated it Do those kids not count Well Teenage Wasteland is irreparably dated the events depicted in the book are from a generation ago and dead end kids are now adults and or less unning the show With nuance and empathy than boomers did I might addI come from a small town myself and a I m about in the middle of this book which I have to ead for a sociology class and I eally don t like it It sounds like the author never got past her own teenage issues and is basically now writing them into a book Here s a passage from page 135 Kids are silent because they fear getting sent to etard school stigma worse than deathUm seriously Worse than DEATH Kids are silent because they fear getting sent to etard school stigma worse than deathUm seriously Worse than DEATH think that s a bit of an exaggeration Not only is the book poorly written but entirely inaccurate giving insight only to a small sub section of Bergenfield As someone who grew up in the town and lived there for the majority of my life I can safely say that this woman s conclusions are entirely off the mark All this book did was piss me off and give a distorted view of Bergenfield It comes across as bad journalism Don t waste your time with this tripe. Written with anything like Gaines's native gusto or her luminous eye for detail Andrew Ross TransitionAn outstanding case study Gaines shows how teens engage in cultural production and how such social agency is affected by economic transformations and institutional interventions Richard Lachman Contemporary SociologyThe best book on contemporary youth culture Rolling Sto.
