King Dork: A List of Music Mentioned in the Book







Portman loves music and his book is a good introduction to "New Wave of British Heavy Metal".

I loved the mentions of bands in the bands. I had forgotten, or had not heard of many of them.

Here is a list (it's probably not complete) of bands and songs mentioned in King Dork.
