Auteur: Andersen, Mark & Mark Jenkins
Titel: The Dance of Days
Sub titel: Two decades of Punk in the Nation's Capital

The authors present an eyewitness account of the punk scene in Washington, D.C. Illustrated with more than 100 photos, the book documents the rise of trailblazing artists from the 1980s and 1990s, while examining the roots of Dischord Records, Positive Force, and Riot Grrrl. Artists featured include Henry Rollins, Minor Threat, Fugazi, and Bikini Kill. This is what Ian Mackaye of Fugazi had to say about this book when asked by Slug magazine if he had read this book. "IAN: I have not read it. I don't read books about myself. I was there, and I know what happened. They [the people that wrote the book] were not there. They're my friends. I know they had a big job ahead of them, but they were not there, so they couldn't possibly know what really happened. It would be depressing to read my own history and not have it be accurate. It's just weird. I just avoid those things. Another thing is that they are history books, and history is about what has been done. I am not done. I am doing. I'm not there yet. I've got too much work to do."
