Synopsis

Jim Lindberg is a Punk Rock Dad. When he drives his kids to school in the morning, they listen to the Ramones, the Clash, or the Descendents—and that's it. They can listen to Britney and Justin on their own time. Jim goes to soccer games, dance rehearsals, and piano recitals like all the other dads, but when he feels the need, he also goes to punk shows, runs into the slam pit, and comes home bruised and beaten . . . but somehow feeling strangely better. While the other dads dye their hair brown to cover the gray, Jim occasionally dyes his blue or green. He makes his daughters' lunches, kisses their boo-boos, and tucks them in at night—and then goes into the garage and plays Black Flag and Minor Threat songs at a criminal volume. He pays his taxes, votes in all the presidential and gubernatorial elections, serves on jury duty, and reserves the right to believe that there is a vast Right Wing Conspiracy—and that the head of the P.T.A. is possibly in on it. He is a Punk Rock Dad.

Punk Rock Dad

Ageing punker does fatherhood.
November 1st, 2014
As a Pennywise fan I wasn't disappointed by this book, in fact I was pleasantly surprised by how well written and candid it was. Brutally honest and funny, you don't have to be a fan of Lindberg's music or the punk scene to read this, you don't even need to be a parent, just enjoy one man's happiness, panic and despair as he faces fatherhood and realises he too has to grow up and be a parental role model.
