35. Henry Rollins - Get In The Van (1994)
Rollins is a seasoned practitioner of the spoken word, but his memoir of his days as the singer in hardcore punk pioneers Black Flag is a compelling read. It takes in Rollins' induction into the righteous band under the watchful eye of leader Greg Ginn and their constant battle with the police, plus their horrendous tour of the UK in 1982. Not glamorous at all, but fascinating. Also available as a talking book.
