From giants of the movement (Black Flag, the Minutemen, Mission of Burma, Fugazi, Superchunk, Melvins, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, Hüsker Dü, the Replacements, Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, Dinosaur Jr., Big Black, the Pixies), to more obscure bands which nonetheless made their own impacts (Jesus Lizard, Cows, Low, Mercury Rev, Polvo, Squirrel Bait, Karp, Bongwater, Naked Raygun, Sun City Girls, and many others) and scores of artists who still await their proper due (Fly Ashtray, Dumptruck, Truly, Man-Sized Action, Steel Pole Bathtub, godheadSilo, Sorry, Team Dresch, Further, Grifters, World of Pooh, Trumans Water, Malignus Youth, Eggs, and many more), Earles provides an exhaustive album guide to the era. Earles also features those bands that cut their teeth on the indie circuit but graduated to a greater degree of mainstream recognition in the late 1980s and early 1990s (acts like R.E.M., Soul Asylum, Urge Overkill, Hole, Smashing Pumpkins, and Nirvana), making Gimme Indie Rock is the definitive manual for the best of American indie music made between 1981 and 1996.
