Vote Today For The MC5 in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame [VIDEO]
Well we're going to try again to get The MC5 into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The list of nominees for the class of 2019 was announced this week and The Motor City 5 is getting another chance to break down the entrance door. This is the fourth time around for one of the greatest rock bands of all time.
According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's biography on the band...The Motor City 5 kicked out the jams and politicized every bystander in sight. Their sound was a unique combination of R&B, psychedelia and garage rock with dominant political messages. With proud anti-establishment credentials—the f-bomb was their go-to rallying cry—the MC5 prefigured much of American punk rock and even influenced heavy metal.
Vote for The MC5 here and you can do it once a day.
I really enjoy this video done in a production studio setting of The MC5 doing "Kick Out The Jams" in living color.
WARNING...If you are offended by the "F' word don't listen to the first 3 seconds.
