The Dance of Decadence: The Uncensored History of Jane’s Addiction

If you did something dangerously fun and outrageous in the late '80s and '90s that your parents didn't like, you can probably thank Perry Farrell and Jane's Addiction. Stalking out of Los Angeles' seedy underground after hair metal wilted, they revolutionized what rock music sounded and looked like, and became the godfathers of the Alternative Nation. This is their shocking history--from wiseguys and Fila headbands to goth surfers, transsexuals, Siamese twins, Lollapalooza, and Carmen Electra. Proceed at your own risk.
