From its first issue in 1985, SPIN has cultivated a reputation for brilliant writing and broad musical coverage, including genres and artists long abandoned by its competitors. From punk to electronica, goth to gangsta rap, emo to garage rock, and hip-hop to indie rock, SPIN has covered it all and featured interviews with leading artists through every musical wave of the last 25 years.

SPIN: Greatest Hits brings together some of the classic stories that have appeared in the magazine, each with a new introduction by the author offering historical perspective on the article.

Compiles the best articles from well-known writers such as Chuck Klosterman, Jonathan Ames, Elizabeth Gilbert, and David Hajdu
Features the best SPIN interviews with Lou Reed, Noel Gallagher, Chuck D, and other influential musicians
Includes hilarious sidebars such as ""Six Extreme Metal Bands That Could Be Mistaken for Flavors of Herbal Tea,"" ""Six Misguided Attempts to Falsify Rock History,"" and more

Packed with great writing and information spanning a quarter-century of iconic music and musicians,SPIN: Greatest Hits is an essential keepsake for music fans and lovers of pop culture.
