The Amplified Come as You Are by Michael Azerrad

Staff Pick

Not just the best biography of one of the '90s greatest bands, Come As You Are is one of the best books about what it's like being in a band. First published in 1993, Azerrad's book drew on his interviews with the fast-rising group to defy the legend being built around them. This expanded edition revisits the original text to round off Nirvana's story and Cobain's tragic end, expand what we knew and explain why even three decades later "Smells Like Teen Spirits" still sounds like it was recorded yesterday. A must-read!
