A searing punk memoir by an American original rebelling against conformity, complacency, and conservatism with his iconic band, MDC. Dictor's narrative is a raw portrait of an American underground folk-hero who stood on the barricades advocating social justice and spreading punk's promise to a global audience. Part poet, renegade, satirist, and lover, he is an authentic, homegrown character carrying the progressive punk fight into the twenty-first century.
Dave Dictor is singer, lyricist, and founding member of the legendary American punk band MDC (Millions of Dead Cops). Since 1979, Dictor has toured throughout the world with MDC, has released more than 9 albums with MDC that sold more than 125,000 copies. MDC continues to play 60+ concerts each year in the US and Europe. Dictor's MDC song, John Wayne Was A Nazi, was featured in the best-selling video game, Grand Theft Auto 5.
