About this book
The nation's capital gave birth to arguably the most fertile and influential punk underground of the 1980s and 90s. Dance Of Days recounts the rise of trailblazing artists such as Bad Brains, Henry Rollins, Minor Threat, Rites of Spring, Fugazi and Bikini Kill, while examining the roots of PMA, straight edge, Dischord Records, Revolution Summer, Positive Force, and Riot Grrrl. This book provides a window on the hidden history of a grassroots rock revolution that burst into the mainstream with Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."

Mark Andersen is the co-founder of Positive Force DC, a punk activist collective, while Jenkins writes about film for the Washington City Paper and about music for the Washington Post, Time Out New York, WAMU-FM, and National Public Radio's All Things Considered.
