For Those Who Tried To Rock project

For Those Who Tried To Rock is a brilliant new project to tell the "sonic history of the American pop band." The site's founders are seeking the stories and photos of every teen band who rocked their parents' garage fueled by big dreams and cheap beer. For now, the material they collect will end up on the Web site, preserved for posterity. Eventually, they hope to compile it into a book. In my opinion, their logo, above, nails the suburban American experience they want to document. Link (Thanks, Birdman!)


  1. LoL, I have a half dozen or so old bands for the archive, and counting. I would definitely buy a coffee table book of this. Pretty brilliant idea. Only thing is, it’s missing out the ‘we salute you.’

  2. My friends and I had a band in ’82 named Helen Keller; punk, of course. Wonder if they have any pictures?
