About This Book

A look into the weird and wonderful world of music’s most obsessive fan clubs. We all know of the adoring fans who created Beatlemania in the ’60s, and more recently Justin Bieber’s beloved Beliebers. But what about Ke$ha’s superfans—Animals—or Beyoncé’s Beyhive, the Britney Army, Gaga’s Little Monsters, or Nicki Minaj’s Barbz? Each music superstar often has an incredibly dedicated fan base behind them. Super Fans looks at the biggest fan bases in the modern history of music in a fun, engaging way. You’ll soon be an expert on the Directioners (One Direction), Maggots (Slipknot), Fanilows (Barry Manilow), Swifties (Taylor Swift), Juggalos (Insane Clown Posse), and Phishheads (Phish), among many others.
