Hey! Nietzsche! Leave Them Kids Alone! - The Romantic Movement, Rock & Roll, and the End of Civilisation As We Know It
Schuftan, Craig

Why do goths wear black? Why do rock singers make that 'jesus' shape on stage? Why do songs about death and despair make us feel good? And why can't you get no satisfaction? According to Craig Schuftan, it all began about two hundred years ago. Hey! Nietzche! is the first book to uncover the hidden roots of rock and roll in the romantic movement.
