9780061148767: Punk Rock Dad: No Rules, Just Real Life

Jim Lindberg is a Punk Rock Dad. When he drives his kids to school in the morning, they listen to the Ramones, the Clash, or the Descendents and that's it. He goes to all the soccer games, dance rehearsals, and piano recitals, but when he feels the need, he goes into the slam pit at punk shows and comes home bruised and beaten—somehow feeling strangely better. While the other dads dye their hair brown to cover the gray, Jim occasionally dyes his blue or green. He pays his taxes, serves jury duty, votes in all major elections, and reserves the right to believe that there's a vast Right Wing Conspiracy—and that the head of the P.T.A. is possibly in on it. He is a Punk Rock Dad.

From the Back Cover:

Jim Lindberg is a Punk Rock Dad. When he drives his kids to school in the morning, they listen to the Ramones, the Clash, or the Descendents—and that's it. They can listen to Britney and Justin on their own time. Jim goes to soccer games, dance rehearsals, and piano recitals like all the other dads, but when he feels the need, he also goes to punk shows, runs into the slam pit, and comes home bruised and beaten . . . but somehow feeling strangely better. While the other dads dye their hair brown to cover the gray, Jim occasionally dyes his blue or green. He makes his daughters' lunches, kisses their boo-boos, and tucks them in at night—and then goes into the garage and plays Black Flag and Minor Threat songs at a criminal volume. He pays his taxes, votes in all the presidential and gubernatorial elections, serves on jury duty, and reserves the right to believe that there is a vast Right Wing Conspiracy—and that the head of the P.T.A. is possibly in on it. He is a Punk Rock Dad.

About the Author:

Over the last 15 years, Jim Lindberg's punk band Pennywise has sold three million albums and headlined America's longest running music festival, the Vans Warped Tour. He lives in southern California with his wife and daughters.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Punk Rock Dad: No Rules, Just Real Life, Jim Lindberg, As the lead signer of punk band Pennywise, Jim Lindberg spends his evenings screaming to thousands of moshing kids to screw authority, and then goes home and tries to maintain some sense of authority over his young three daughters. Every father will be able to relate to Lindberg's hilarious parenting misadventures and struggle to figure out how to encourage his kids to seek their own answers, but still respect him. Jim Lindberg is a punk rock dad. When he drives his kids to school in the morning, they only listen to the Ramones, the Clash or the Descendents.This is family time; the girls can listen to Britney and Justin on their own time. He goes to all the soccer games, dance rehearsals and piano recitals like all the other dads, but when he feels the need, he also goes to punk shows and runs into the slam pit and comes home bruised and beaten, but somehow feeling strangely better. While the other dads dye their hair brown to cover the grey, Jim occasionally dyes his blue or green. He makes his daughters lunches, kisses their bruised knees and tucks them in at night, and then goes in the garage and plays Black Flag and Minor Threat songs at criminal volume. He pays his taxes, votes, serves jury duty, and reserves the right to believe that the head of the P.T.A is possibly in on a massive Right Wing Conspiracy. Bookseller Inventory # B9780061148767
