Weekend Punk Pick: MC5

Brothers and sisters, it's time to testify. Testify for the punk forefathers who paved the way (with younger siblings the Stooges) for every garage band with three chords and a vision. Brothers and sisters, this is the sound of revolution, leaving Motor City burning in its wake in the course of the single greatest live album ever set to tape. Brother Wayne Kramer's guitar was pyrotechnic. Reverend Rob Tyner led the masses in holy reverie. Can you dig it? Can you get down with it? Can you KICK OUT THE JAMS, MOTHERFUCKER!

As far as this sound goes I'll take Hawkwind over this any day, but I appreciate MC5 more for their place in history
