 I wouldn't call it pre-punk, but definitely a great blast from the past.

Well this one is definitely pre-punk:



I recall Fred and Mike, the very sophisticated older fellows (by two and one year respectively) down the street, had ? & the Mysterians' debut LP in 1966:



I do have a copy now though!

 ;)

Like I say, Fred and Mike were very sophisticated. They had treasures like the Shirriff Hockey Coin Shields and Shirriff Baseball Coins in 1962 long before I did. And they had Aurora monster model kits, Revell "Big Daddy" Roth model kits, a Hawk Freddie the Foul model kit and a Monogram Li'l Coffin model kit when I was still just coveting such treasures on the shelves at Tuckey Hardware and the downtown Kresge store.

  ? and the Mysterians definitely got the punk movement going (as did the early Kinks singles).

For those that may be interested, I just came across a podcast called Six Foot Plus. I've only listened to a couple of episodes so far, but I'm digging it. It's like if a horror host had a radio show instead of a TV show. The guy plays music from bands of the surf, horror punk and psychobilly variety.

I did a quick search and didn't see this brought up anywhere else. Here's a link to the first episode:

  Great list. Remember their first single, "Killing an Arab"? Try releasing that today. Total jihad.

Great song. Yeah even the Cure censors this track. They play it as "Killing Another." The ironic thing is it's actually an anti-war song and the Cure speak out against Islamophobia. Doesn't matter these days.

Right Arthur Brown def not punk, but I have to think he inspired people like Alice Cooper and Kiss among others.

I know this has been shown before but this is one of the TRUE Pre-Punk songs just based on aggression rawness and attitude. First heard this in 6th grade. My parents HATED it. JUst made me like it that much more.  Ladies and Germs. MC5

 Oh yeah. When Rob Tyner finished the introduction to that song, punk was officially born.

So just based on the title of this thread, I HAVE to put this in here. I am a HUGE fan of Goth/death rock and have been for over 35 years. Sisters of Mercy being a fave. This band is very similar to the very early Merciful Release EP's of the late 70's to early 80's. I;m sure you will start getting irritated by my intros. Dark,Depressing,please do not play with razor blades while listening.   Screams for TinA. One of the most mournful depressing Goth songs I have ever heard. THAT is why I LOVE it so much.. Enjoy.

Not only were the Ramones perhaps the very first band that could properly be called punk, they were key to defining the punk genre. The Ramones sought to return rock music to the two and a half minute singles that were played on Top Forty stations up to the mid sixties. Punk rock was thus really a rebellion against the excesses that had crept up in rock by the mid-seventies, e.g. instrumental noodling and hotdogging, songs as long as album sides, bands touring with full-fledged symphony orchestras in tow, art rock, stadium rock, Queen, Electric Light Orchestra, Yes etc. Punk heralded a return to simplicity. It was nihilism pure and simple. As Sid Vicious said to Freddie "Aren't you that Freddie Saturn bloke who's trying to bring ballet to the masses?" As such, punk was young kids rebellion against their older flower children siblings.

Excesses of course quickly developed within punk itself, e.g. safety pins, razor blades, Mohawks. And some later bands, e.g. Clash, Dead Kennedys, sought to introduce a political element to punk. But political posturing betrayed the very ideals of punk since the movement was based on nihilism, pure and simple.


Here then are two more I really like from seminal punk pioneers the Ramones!

Two of the Ramones' classic tunes.
We're a happy family, we're a happy family
We're a happy family, me, mom and daddy

Siting here in Queens
Eating refried beans
We're in all the magazines
Gulpin' down Thorazines
We ain't got no friends
Our troubles never end
No Christmas cards to send
Daddy likes men

Daddy's telling lies
Baby's eating flies
Mommy's on pills
Baby's got the chills
I'm friends with the President
I'm friends with the Pope
We're all making a fortune selling Daddy's dope
