THERE WAS NO ALTERNATIVE
An in-depth look at No Alternative, the groundbreaking 1993 alternative rock AIDS charity record featuring Nirvana, The Breeders, Beastie Boys, Pavement, and more, There Was No Alternative contains all new interviews with the record's producers, a number of the bands, and commentary on every track.
"Strongly reported and excellently written, There Was No Alternative by Jeff Gomez is more than the story of a singularly important benefit album. At a time when other plagues loom large and memories are too short, Gomez charts how AIDS and the reluctance by those in power to help the afflicted shaped the attitude and music of a generation. It's a tale that very much needed telling."
—Jim DeRogatis, author of Staring at Sound: The True Story of Oklahoma’s Fabulous Flaming Lips and Let It Blurt: The Life and Times of Lester Bangs, America’s Greatest Rock Critic
