The phrase "hydrogen jukebox," while curious sounding, had deep personal significance for poet Allen Ginsberg. For him, it summed up the entire idea of America's sensory overload with its military industrial complex - a thought that propelled much of his writing. By the time Hydrogen Jukebox came into being in 1990, Ginsberg had witnessed and catalogued four decades of turmoil in America through his poetry.
