Born to Rock, by Gordon Korman

Conservative high school student Leo Carraway, head of his school's Young Republican club, learns a shocking truth - his biological father is really King Maggot (real name Marion McMurphy), head of the hard rock group Purge! After he loses his college scholarship Leo decides to track down McMurphy and demand the tuition money from him. But McMurphy first demands a DNA test, and offers Leo a summer job working as a roadie for the band while they wait for the results - NOT Leo's idea of the perfect summer job!

Leo's journey to punk-rock appreciation is a sharply observed, original take on the tired "outsider looking in" cliche - Booklist
