135 greatest proto-punk songs, part 5


135 greatest proto-punk songs is completed.
part 1
part 2
part 3
part 4

This part is called 'garage.' I said before that I don't really think a lot of the 60's garage-rock stuff qualifies as proto-punk because that was just the sound then, and this compilation isn't necessarily garage-rock. Basically, these songs embody the idea of some dudes rocking out in a garage and not giving a shit about anything. These aren't the 'smart,' era-conscious musicians, or the angry, drug-fueled anti-hippies...just some fuckers playing sloppy rock music.

***RE-UPLOADED 5/24/14***


It might be of interest that Beauregarde is a former pro-wrestler who decided to make a rock album for his entrance music, and that his guitarist is none other than a teenage Greg Sage of the Wipers. Also, Desmond Dekker's music isn't really similar to punk at all, but with fans like Op Ivy, The Clash and Rancid, he's definitely a punk influence. Lastly, Jack Starr was supposedly a special effects guy for a lot of 50's and 60's B-movies who recorded his crude garage-rock in the bathroom of his apartment.
