THE STORY OF HANOI ROCKS series is based on hundreds of newspaper, radio, TV and Internet articles and interviews and also books related to the band. Though we haven't mentioned any sources, they still do exist. How correct those opinions are or how correctly interviewers have quoted the people they've interviewed is naturally out of our hands and therefore unconfirmed. That's why we wish that those who have any kind of opinion or better knowledge about the issues we deal within this history would contact the maintainer of this website.

Here is a list of some sources we have used: Yleisradio, MTV3, STT, Soundi, Rumba, Suosikki, Ok, Okej!, Seura, Ilta-Sanomat, Iltalehti, City, Helsingin Sanomat, Seura, Apu, 7 Päivää, Se, Rare, Record Collector, Sounds, Music Maker, Scandal, NME and MusicTelevision.
