The Beat Generation may have disbanded some 40 years ago, but its poetic spirit continues to pervade youth culture, speaking to millions. For decades, young adults have turned to poetry to find a voice for the raw emotion that characterizes adolescence. Now, REVOLUTION ON CANVAS sets out to reclaim and refresh poetry for today's youth in this collection that offers a little bit of everything for everyone. The writing, which ranges from the funny and absurd to heart wrenching, is an eclectic mix of poetry and prose authored by up-and-coming musicians who cover the spectrum of independent music. The bands behind this extraordinary collection, including A Static Lullaby, NOFX, The Format, and Finch, have collectively sold over a million records.
