Kick Out the Jams

Kick Out the Jams

Few burned as bright as Detroit proto-punk legends MC5. Kick Out the Jams was intended as merely a document of the band’s live show, but it stands as a flashpoint for punk, garage, and the visceral power of politically charged rock. Witness the wild dueling guitar solos of Wayne Kramer and Fred “Sonic” Smith on “Rocket Reducer No. 62,” and frontman Rob Tyner’s infamously foul-mouthed introduction to the title track. In capturing a moment, this album defines a movement.
