MEKONS: LA STORIA DEL ROCK

Band con stile punk, molto rudimentali con qualche difficoltà tecnica, riescono ugalmente a incidere qualche album e ottenere discreti successi. Molto impegnati nei testi a sfindo sociale e politico. Cambia spesso la formazione, indice di un disagio di continue disaccordi nel gruppo.Molte sono, dopo lo scioglimento, le raccolte e le cover della band.
