In what amounts to a history of the last twenty-five years of popular music, respected music journalist Garry Mulholland has compiled a list of the 500 greatest singles since The Sex Pistols' seminal "Anarchy in the UK". In incisive, outspoken and informative essays, Mulholland challenges the accepted standpoint of music journalism to produce an entertaining, nostalgic and provocative read. Incidentally, the title comes from a 1977 entry in the book by the Rezillos.

About the Author:

Garry Mulholland is a well-known and well-respected music journalist and has written for many of the popular music publications; he is currently writing for one of the most authoritative, Mojo, and for The Guardian, as well as acting as a Contributing Editor to Time Out.

From Booklist:

Mulholland's pick singles of 1976-99 appear chronologically because telling why "No. 361 is better than No. 362 seems like a hellish nightmare." First up: the Sex Pistols' "Anarchy in the UK," and Mulholland spaces pithy commentaries with sleeve and label art until Artful Dodger's "Re-Rewind the Crowd Say Bo Selecta" on page 432. An artist index aids determining which personal faves are slighted and which lame-os exalted. Bob Marley and the Wailers score zip in Mulholland's world, while top-40 reggae-ists Dennis Brown and Gregory Isaacs manage one each. Sheesh! There's only one Ramones song, "Sheena Is a Punk Rocker." Incredible! Kudos to the Brit, though, for recognizing D.C. go-go heroes Trouble Funk for "Drop the Bomb," and for including plenty of the Clash. List books are great for warm memories and heated debates. With its in-your-face attitude and strong opinions, this is a good one, even if Lee Scratch Perry's very influential "I Am a Madman" and "Introducing Myself" (they were singles, right?) and the Marley-Scratch "Punky Reggae Party" ain't in it.
