The first biography of punk pop band The Distillers. The Distillers have had phenomenal success, with their music featuring as the theme to the film Spider Man 2 and in X Box games. Controversy has followed from the music industry, who see the band as creating themselves for sell-out markets rather than musical integrity. Journalist Matt Diehl examines the phenomenon of punk rebirth through the lens of The Distillers, a band standing as the poster child for a new rock revolution.
