It s a unique band that can land itself on the cover ofRolling Stone a month before the release of its debut album and then bebooted from its record contract just a few months later. Rock had neverbefore seen the likes of the MC5 and never will again. Many of us whowere floored by the 5 in concert were convinced that this was the mosttranscendently pulverizing rock we would ever experience, while manymore who heard or read about the band dismissed the 5 as a caricature, afraud, White Panther bozos play-acting at revolution. There was alwaysplenty of humor to the 5 visionary knuckleheads though the questionwas whether they were in on the joke. Frequently ridiculed during theirshort career, they ve since been hailed as a primal influence oneverything from punk to metal to Rage Against the Machine to the Detroitpopulist resurgence of the White Stripes, Kid Rock and Eminem.
