Despite having recorded only 3 albums, MC5's influence went far beyond the band's native Detroit. Alongside hometown contemporaries The Stooges, the band's gritty style, which consisted of garage rock, hard rock, blues and psychedelic rock, went on to shape, in one way or another, the looming punk movement, and traces of the band can be found in the sounds of acts like Bad Brains, Black Flag, the Damned, Circle Jerks, Husker Du, The Melvins, The Dead Kennedys, The New York Dolls, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, the White Stripes, and much more. Driving, high-energy rock from beginning to end, this is the first LEGITIMATE compilation of music from the Motor City legends, and it covers the band's Elektra and Atlantic recordings (from albums Back In The USA, High Time, & Kick Out the Jams). Pressed on limited-edition 180g translucent blue splatter vinyl, includes insert sheet, numbered to 2668 LPs. Check out "Kick out the Jams," "Looking At You," "The American Ruse," "Ramblin' Rose," and "Teenage Lust."
