      That's garage rock.

      If it only had a single good song on it.

      Every song is a masterpiece, homosexual.

        You're an idiot. Monk Time is definitely a punk song, sounds 15 years ahead of its time.

        Monks and VU are both kinda pushing towards it but I wouldn't really say Punk like we know it know existed till at least 76 and really not until The 80s with HC,Oi!,and Post-Punk existing.

    Black people literally created punk rock and then pioneered hardcore punk with Bad Brains

      It's really not a punk album. It's Detroit rock, like all the other rock music coming out of Detroit at the time.

        It's debatable an early example I would say. Little bit closer.

      >>No no this obscure album that sounds nothing like the music we're talking about was very important.
      >>No you've just never heard of it cuz ur racist wye boi.
      >>No all those white bands you mentioned that came before the black band didn't influence it cuz my culture strong.

      Biggest nagger cope of all time. naggers at best pioneered a few rhythm based or rap subgenres, but whities made the rest. Cope

      I read somewhere they played a show so loud it physically killed a dog. Should probably give them a listen to be honest

          It's literally just pedestrian blues rock played sloppily with lots of volume and distortion. The production is also terrible, and not in an "it's supposed to be lo-fi" way.

            "Blues" isn't an insult, fag. Sick of low T fags using it as one.

      I once heard this album described as sounding loud even when played low volume.

      Probably for the best.
      Johnny Thunders had to leave The Dolls to put out this masterpiece.

      Everybody used to compare The Dead boys to The Sex Pistols, but THIS is the contender for the throne! (And I say that as a Dead Boys/Early Alice Cooper fan!)

        The Sex Pistols are a fucking boyband, they aint shit and never were

          It really doesn't matter, because you can so easily attack the supposed authenticity of any number of legendary punk bands. The Sex Pistols were like an art project, but like, so were The Monks. and so were the Monkees! and you can't deny The Monkees.

          I think The Sex Pistols suck and listening to them mostly reminds me of how disgusting I find british people--but it was the genesis for the entire punk scene.

      Walking around like that was a death sentence, in them day, and yet Dolls said they got so much snatch, beautiful model types, coming out their eyeballs set the course for all the glam clustersfux that would come later.

      This record is personal to me, cos a guy who dragged around w/Jerry and Sylvain, gave me his LP. Classic Rock'n'Roll record, "Jet Boy" as a closer is too epic, 6minute b-movie "Frankenstein". Dolls viewed it as the return of the 3 minute song, it's foggy when saying so and so is first.

      But then there's this, and to another degree "So Alone". The Max's Kansas is a certified superb sounding live document capturingthe bands energies and Johnny's snarks and sneers, "You gonna dance or yous guys gonna stand around like a couple bunch of assholes" . Seems from interviews of scenesters; The Heartbreakers were the best live band in nyc.

    Their were certainly a few notable american punk bands--but really not before the late 70s, and then american punk doesn't really do anything on its own until hardcore kicks off. I used to be super invested in american punk bands like the Dead Kennedys, the Dicks, the Germs--they're all-timers. But punk was really a british phenomenon, the much-touted american legendary punk venues--Max's Kansas City, CBGB, the other one--really ended up being a launchpad for a ton of great idiosyncratic and new wave rock acts--but there's no closing the doors. Are Talking Heads a punk band? Is Devo a punk band? How about The Ramones? They're definitely a punk band. So where do ya draw the line?

    On The Stooges, the MC5, and any number of songs or bands from the 60s that are Nuggets or Pebbles-related: you're right and you're wrong. How is shit like "The Witch" by The Sonics or "Gloria" by Them or "Fight Fire" by the Golliwogs or an album like Fun House not a punk album--but it's really not. They are important forerunners but it is separate. If you start playing with rules like that you'll be like the people insisting that the Jerry Lee Lewis album at the Star Club is a punk album. Might as well go full circle at that rate.

      The Dolls, The Heartbreakers music was littered with rock'n'roll reference points

      Take "Trash" for example when David asks " ahh how do you call yr loverboy "
      A nod to Mickey & Sylvia's classic "Love Is Strange" which Thunders would cover on a duets album w/ Patti Palladin "Copy Cats".

      Like anon was getting at, full circle; The Heartbreakers nod Jerry Lee Lewis, their music was more direct in reference points. I'm sure Johnny Thunders saw himself like the tragic American Blues singers livin outlaw just scrapping by with the devil on shoulder.

      It must of been out of this world first seeing the Dolls, at first they didn't go full drag, it's like Bebe or Sable Starr said, Thunders in those red patent leather pants on the back cover, tryin to cope being put in cuffs with his schlong outlining those leathers... Burroughs in the punk sense. Wild stuff esp for that time.
