From Elvis Costello to the Ramones, this look back into the history of punk rock offers a compelling look at the artists who bucked the trends to do things their own way. By showcasing the works of such extreme musicians as Iggy Pop and the Plasmatics, and giving the musicians an open opportunity to discuss their craft, The Tomorrow Show host Tom Snyder opened the eyes of the public to an underground genre of music that was as controversial as it was groundbreaking. In addition to a revealing roundtable discussion of punk rock featuring Joan Jett, Paul Weller, Bill Graham, Kim Fowley, and Robert Hilburn, this release also offers live performances by Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Iggy Pop, the Plasmatics, Patti Smith, John Lydon, the Jam, and the Ramones.
