Before The Catcher in the Rye was published in 1951, The New Yorker turned down an excerpt, saying the novel was "showoffy." J.D. Salinger's only novel would endure for nearly 60 years precisely because so many could relate to the main character Holden Caulfield, an antihero who spoke like a real teenager and rebelled against conformity. With his conclusion that successful people were phonies, Caulfield was punk rock long before punk rock existed. It's no wonder Catcher has long been a popular muse for songwriters.
