    I WAS JUST PUT ON TO THESE GUYS A YEAR AGO.THE MOTOR CITY 5 RELEASED THEIR EARLY STUFF AROUND 1967.THEY WERE A KICK ASS POWERHOUSE ROCK 'N ROLL BAND FROM THE DETROIT THAT PRETTY MUCH INVENTED THE''GARAGE ROCK''SOUND.THEY HAD HIGH ENERGY SHOWS,GREAT SONGS,AND INTERESTING POLITICS.THEY INSPIRED SUCH ACTS AS AT THE DRIVE IN.IT SEEMS HOWEVER THEY ARE PRETTY MUCH OVERLOOKED IN THE HIPPIE MUSIC HISTORY...EVEN THOUGH THEY WHERE VERY REVOLUTIONARY,AND AHEAD OF THERE TIME.IS ANYONE ON HERE FEELING THESE GUYS?I PERSONALLY LOVE THE SONG''THEHUMANBEINGLAWNMOWER''WHICH WOULD BE SICK IF IT WERE RELEASED TODAY.

    MC5 make every "popular" band round today look like pussies...they were the real fucking thing.

    and if you ever have chance, check out Iggy Pop live...still a complete freakshow live.
    Jello Biafra got all his moves from Iggy, just like Michael Jackson stole all his moves from James Brown.

    peace,

    love the MC5, kept hearing their cover of 'i can only give you everything' and had to get more, how fucking good is 'kick out the jams'?...band i've been into for years, Spacemen 3, are heavily influenced by MC5, their song 'revolution' could be MC5, well recommended
    REVOLUTION - PURITY - LOVE - SUICIDE - ACCURACY

    whoa,
    if you're just looking into them, have fun. that's a real fun band to look into. just wait until you get to all their political shit including working class revolt, marijuana legalization, and the white panthers (and no it wasn't no racist shit). hahaha. by all means do it to it....
