By its nature, emo refuses to be categorized, but in his debut book, Spin senior contributing writer Andy Greenwald pins down the misunderstood genre and its teary-eyed, dedicated listeners. Taking its title from a Promise Ring song, Nothing Feels Good: Punk Rock, Teenagers, and Emo is an enthusiastic and exhaustive journalistic account of the music's history, tracing its roots from D.C. hardcore acts such as Rites of Spring to early breakthroughs Sunny Day Real Estate to present-day success stories New Found Glory and Jimmy Eat World.
