American Hardcore: A Tribal History is a journalistic book by Steven Blush documenting the history of the early hardcore punk music scene in Northern America from 1980 to 1986. Its first edition was published by Feral House in October 2001.
Second edition (2010)
An extended second edition was released on November 1, 2010. In this practically new book, the author updated all of the chapters, added a new one titled "Destroy Babylon", which explores the mutant forms of spirituality that came from the movement, and interviewed over twenty-five new subjects. Blush also has unearthed over a hundred new pieces of artwork, drafted two hundred plus new band bios, and radically expanded discography. Most significant, he has offered a new conclusion which is an anomaly within the realm of period studies. The original book was 328 pages, and the revised edition 408.
