Fargo Rock City : a heavy metal odyssey in rural Nörth Daköta by Chuck Klosterman

I picked up Klosterman’s book about heavy metal, glam, and hair bands of the 80s because of the title (I too grew up in the country not too far from Fargo), and though I sometimes found his commentary on the actual music tedious (I’ve never rocked very hard), his autobiographical sections are pretty entertaining, and I have to admit that I had never considered the relationship between sexism and misogyny before I read this book
