Book Launch: Steve Hyden reads from Your Favorite Band Is Killing Me: What Pop Music Rivalries Reveal About the Meaning of Life


Music critic Steven Hyden explores nineteen music rivalries and what they say about life.

Beatles vs. Stones. Biggie vs. Tupac. Kanye vs. Taylor. Who do you choose? And what does that say about you? Actually--what do these endlessly argued-about pop music rivalries say about us?

Music opinions bring out passionate debate in people, and Steven Hyden knows that firsthand. Each chapter in Your Favorite Band Is Killing Me focuses on a pop music rivalry, from the classic to the very recent, and draws connections to the larger forces surrounding the pairing.

Through Hendrix vs. Clapton, Hyden explores burning out and fading away, while his take on Miley vs. Sinead gives readers a glimpse into the perennial battle between old and young.

Steven Hyden has written for Grantland, the A.V. Club, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Slate, and Salon. He lives in Minnesota.
