Editorial Reviews


"From a terrifying 1833 meteor shower through the atomic bombings of 1945 and the attacks of September 11, 2001, U.S. cultural creators have often viewed the times through an apocalyptic lens. In this freewheeling and vigorously personal book, David Janssen and Edward J. Whitelock explore the pervasiveness of apocalyptic themes in American popular music, from gospel, folk, and country to jazz, rock & roll, and beyond. Performers as diverse as Presley, Coltrane, Dylan, Devo, and R.E.M. receive fresh new interpretations. Apocalyptic Jukebox should have broad appeal." --Paul Boyer, author of When Time Shall Be No More
