Title: KICK OUT THE JAMS
Street Release Date: 11/26/1991
Top Customer Reviews
It is a live album, but something like this just couldn't be replicated in a sanitized studio. I'm reminded a little of the Who's "Live at Leeds", another great live album, except, as powerful as "Leeds" is, I have to concede that this one has it beat. Maybe not as tuneful, but willfully, gleefully over the top. I imagine the MC5 utterly toasted, sweating buckets, and blazing away with the amps bouncing on the stage before the avalanche of drum fills and rollicking guitar riffs.
My favorite songs are the title track (complete with expletives), "Ramblin' Rose", and "Rocket Reducer No. 62 (Rama Lama Fa Fa Fa)". Forget Seattle flannel-laden angst -- you want true grunge, listen to these guys. Then go pick up a guitar and start your own band!
Wayne Kramer didn't use an SG, he used a Strat painted like the Stars and Stripes. The only thing missing from this album is the intense ear-splitting volume.
Brothers and sisters, the MC5's music will drive you wild, into the streets, tearing down everything that would keep us from being free.
Kick out the Jams and stay alive with the MC5.

What's there not to like about this album? I wasn't going to go on a mint vinyl, hard to find, over priced copy of this LP and I was fortunate to get this one brand new. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Dax
