Jim Carroll Qualifies For His Own Song

Punk poet/rocker/athlete Jim Carroll died on September 11, 2009, at 60.

He's most famous for his The Basketball Diaries. With The Jim Carroll Band, he recorded a college party staple called "People Who Died," a morbidly fun power pop/punk anthem, that served as a blueprint for the blasé irony of Generation X.
