GEN F: NOTHING

Domenic Palermo had a rough upbringing. In Philadelphia, his family lived next to “the heroin capital of the country throughout the ’90s,” but at least he had the coolest mom on the block. “We had a one-bedroom place. I would sleep in the room with her, and she would listen to the radio: The Cure, Siouxsie and the Banshees, the Cocteau Twins, stuff like that,” he says, now 32. “I was terrified of the music when I was a kid. It just sounded scary to me.”
