I didn’t know who started punk until earlier tonight…check out MC5!

The MC5 (Motor City Five) was an American hard rock band formed in Lincoln Park, Michigan in 1964 and active until 1972. Their music also included blues-rock, psychedelic rock, rock & roll and garage rock. “Crystallizing the counterculture movement at its most volatile and threatening,”[1] their far left political ties and anti-establishment lyrics and music would serve as a prototype for later punk rock musicians. The band consisted of Wayne Kramer and Fred “Sonic” Smith (guitars) Michael Davis (bass), Rob Tyner (vocals), and Dennis Thompson (drums).
