Corporate Rock Sucks: The Rise and Fall of SST Records
by Jim Ruland
Black Flag, Hüsker Dü, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Soundgarden, and many others all produced their music with SST Records. But what started as a small company providing ham radio enthusiasts with transmitters and tuners eventually became a music behemoth, with legal and financial troubles to match. In this historical deep dive, author Jim Ruland uncovers the story of SST Records, from its beginnings with Black Flag through to its unfortunate end. Featuring never-before-seen interviews with musicians, producers, managers, photographers, label heads, and more, Corporate Rock Sucks is a comprehensive account of alternative music and punk in the '80s, and chronicles the influence of SST Records on the music industry writ large.
