“Fxxcking loved it!!! A great book. Tony Rettman did it once again.”—Mike Ferraro, Judge

“This book accurately recalls a counterculture within a counterculture, a movement that changed the course of so many people’s lives, including my own. A crucial and authoritative glance into that world, shining light for fans around the globe on a time that we will never forget.”—Ray Cappo, Youth of Today

“What separates hardcore from punk is that punk was just saying, ‘fuck this place.’ Hardcore was saying, ‘let’s make a difference. Let’s make our minds stronger and focus.’”—Toby Morse, H2O

“We were out to create a revolution. We loved the power and energy of hardcore, but not the whole self-destructive punk ethos. We were into being healthy and living clean, mean, and smart.”­—John Porcelly, Youth of Today

“Straight edge became a religion. It’s a very strange feeling to be one of the unwitting founders of this religion.”—Jeff Nelson, Minor Threat
