That is not to say that the second edition of American Hardcore: A Tribal History is rife with recanting or revision, but there are new 80 pages of content. All of the chapters are updated, and a new one on spirituality is added. Twenty-five new participants are interviewed and there is a gang of new artwork. I'd say that its worth picking up, but those that already enjoyed the book the first time may be sated without re-reading. Roll the dice. Either way, you can read more or pick up American Hardcore: A Tribal History outright here.
