Description



Book Synopsis



The full story of the rise and spectacular comeback of the band hailed as the saviors of punk rock.

It's hard to believe that in early 2004 Green Day was considered over -- the band was still together, but they were dismissed as a strictly '90s phenomenon, incapable of re-creating the success of their groundbreaking album Dookie. Then American Idiot debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts, stayed on the charts for nearly 18 months, and went on to sell more than four million records and to win the Grammy for Record of the Year for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams."

Combining unique access to Green Day with a seasoned journalists nose for a great story, Marc Spitz gives the complete account of the band, from their earliest days to their most recent explosion of popularity and critical acclaim. Foremost, Nobody Likes You is a story of friendship and the transporting power of playing very loud music. It is the story of how high school dropout Billie Joe Armstrong came to write song lyrics that inflamed the political conscience of fans in a way that two Yale graduates couldn't. Green Days story -- from rise, to fall, to rise again -- has never been fully told.



Review Quotes




"From the band's early days to the critical acclaim and accolades of their latest album, American Idiot, Spitz details the group's friendship and creativity."

"Spitz's writing is cool, quick, and instantly memorable. Nobody Likes You is a comprehensive, behind-the-curtain peek into the politics and passion of punk rock."

"The definitive account of who Green Day is, what Green Day means, and why all of this could only have happened in northern California."

"The ultimate book for fans of Green Day and a book that mirrors the wild, crazy ride that punk has made into the mainstream."
