LETS ALL VOTE FOR THE MC5 2017 ROCK HALL OF FAME INDUCTION!!!


GREAT News from AP just came in today that the Cleveland Rock Hall of Fame has once again nominated the Mighty MC5!!


The number of punk fans who can ID an MC5 song that doesn't begin with a profanity-laden promise of jam-kicking-out is ever-dwindling, but they still feel Important -- one of the defining names of proto-punk -- and no one would be tremendously surprised to find out they'd been a down-ballot inductee a decade ago without anyone really noticing. The Stooges are already in and the New York Dolls haven't been nominated in 15 years, the MC5 seems like a solid pick here.




Legendary Drummer Dennis Thompson feels it is a great honor to be nominated with all the many greats of rock and roll history!

So all of you legions of MC5 fans get on all of your devices and let's share this story world wide... VOTE FOR THE MC5!!!!

AND A BIG SHOUT OUT TO HBO, MICK JAGGER, MARTY SCORSESE, AND TERENCE WINTER FOR USING KICKING OUT THE JAMS ON VINYL!!!

THE STANDELLS PLAY THE MAGIC BAG ON MAY 11th



April 23, 2014 (Brooklyn, NY)  

The Standells are excited to announce the kick-off of their much-anticipated Tour spanning 18 cities across    The United States.  The band, best known for their 1966 hit “Dirty Water” and remembered by many as The Godfathers of Punk Rock, recently released their newest album BUMP. The Standells released a string of snotty, aggressive garage singles in the mid to late 1960s, which are now rightly regarded as proto-punk classics. Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White, Why Pick On Me, Riot On Sunset Strip the songs of The Standells have been covered by everyone from Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith and U2 to Spacemen 3, Minor Threat and a million 77 punk bands as well as many subsequent scene bands.

The group was formed in 1962 by keyboardist and lead vocalist Larry Tamblyn. Larry created the name from "Standing" around booking agencies trying to get work. Today, the Standells consist of original members Larry Tamblyn (lead singer & keyboardist), John Fleck (bassist), Mark Adrian (guitarist & co-lead vocalist), and veteran drummer Greg Burnham.

Their first hit single on Tower Records "Dirty Water" reached #11 on the Billboard charts, #8 in Cashbox, and #1 in Record World. Other chart records include "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White", "Why Pick On Me," and "Riot On Sunset Strip.” which is featured as the kick-off song in the new Rhino Records boxed CD set Where the Action Is.

Dirty Water is listed in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as one of the 500 songs that shaped Rock & Roll. A biography titled Love that Dirty Water The Standells and the Improbable Red Sox Victory Anthem is currently available at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Target and in other retail outlets.
