    Always loved the guitars in this tune, solo at 1:30 in particular.

    Starting out as a folkie I never really appreciated MC5 at the time. I've found a new appreciation for the genre and for their music. I guess old dogs CAN learn new tricks. :D

    Dig the band, dig their attitude, dig their equipment, and love the Kick Out cover.

    But I have a hard time listening to the albums straight through. Wish I could have seen them live! That musta been amazing!

    Played a bunch of their stuff back in the seventies. Not this one though, but I always liked it.

    I always liked this one, written by the drummer.



    I liked the drums in this one.

    MC5 first album . The sound of grinding metal in a cavernous hall.

    Just in case anybody is interested. Here's a guitar lesson from Wayne Kramer on the solo in "Looking At You".
