What happened to punk after Green Day exploded onto the mainstream scene by signing with a major label in 1994? Ozzi chronicles the evolution of the punk scene during this era, focusing on prominent bands as they experienced the last “gold rush” of the music industry. He tracks the rise of successful outfits, like Green Day and Jimmy Eat World, as well as the implosion of groups like Jawbreaker and At the Drive-In.
