So my teacher assigned me a project to write a paper about an "Anti-establishment/Anti-war" song from the sixties, the only problem is that most of that shit went down in the 70s. i mean sure theres plenty of stuff from the hippie bands but i want something more "in your face" if you know what i mean. So my question is, do any of you know any punk esque bands from the 60's?

MC5, Very Late 60's but definetly political (White Panthers)

Kick out The Jams was a fairly controversial album.

Or you could various garage rock bands like the Sonics, although the sonics weren't really anti-anything with their songs.

Don't listen to De-De-Dee, because he himself is a De-De-Dee.

Iggy & the Stooges and the MC5 were around in the 60's. \

You should probably use some hippy-type stuff too, that has plenty of "Anti-establishment/Anti-war" stuff. Try psyschedelic rock and folk for your best bet.

yeah, the sonics work....the monks maybe. could get away with the sooges seeing as how their first album came out in '69. basically, the **** went down in the 70's, tell your teacher to grow a pair and learn his music history

not true.

There were tons of "punk" bands in the 60's. That's what they called it on the Nuggets compilation.

DIY spirit was even around then too with bands like the Kingsmen releasing their own records and bands like MC5 were extremely political.

Research all the bands you can on Nuggets... especially the Sonics, the Kingsmen, the Count Five and ? and the Mysterians

The Monks sounded good, and they seemed to be quite political.

punk didn't start until the 70's. so you probably won't find much from the 60's...

^ No, it just wasn't called that until the late 70's.


EDIT: How about some of Patti Smith's work?

go with MC5.
I saw a movie on one of the Demand channels on digital cable that showed the history of MC5, with reenacted rallies and their personal lives, and a bunch of cool stuff.
Too bad I forgot the name.
The movie was pretty good

What in the red and yellow firey blazes does that have to do with anything that we are talking about. Jesus, Christ!



Anyhow, I'd say Eve Of Destruction is pretty close, but it's not quite up there at the punk level, not even close to the punk-ish level, but still... I mean, come on, its friggin the Byrds.

The Velvet Underground & The Stooges were kind of against big corprate record labels. They got on smaller ones, even though they sold barely any records.

The MC5, The Stooges, The Sonics, The Velvet Underground and believe or not, The Doors were a large influence on punk music.

He was asking for punk from the 60's, and Black Sabbath (although quite awesome) is not punk, and War Pigs came out in the 1970's.

Yes The Doors are good, big influence on punk. So try The Unknown Soldier.
Revolution from The Beatles is good too.

Yeah, I just read the part where he said that he was looking for protest songs, an that was the first thing to come to mind, and normally I don't rect like that, but he started it :peace:

EDIT: oh yeah and War Pigs came out in 70, so I figure it was close enough, ya know

Try The Monks. Here's a thread I made about them the other day with some info and mp3s: http://ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=348970

Oh yeah and The Trashmen aswell, the song Surfin' Bird is pretty damn punk;)

Also I'd say that british invasion bands like The Who, Yardbirds and The Kinks to some extent released some pretty punkish songs.

I was gonna say the elevators like nemo but he stole it from me. The song thru the rythem is very anti establishment.

And "spaced out" sounds like a trippy album.

^Hahahaha.
Since I used to hang out at a record store owned by a man who was a fanatic for Roky Erickson and was gonna name his store 'The 13th Floor Elevator', except he didn't think anyone would get the reference, I don't think you can accuse me of stealing anything from you.

In truth, I was sorta posting for skiracer, because I wasn't sure if he'd write in this thread.
Most people don't know this but........skiracer's parents kicked him out after he got busted for smoking banana peels at school and he sleeps in a dumpster now.
He told me that he has been listening to Fallout Boy to deal with his pain.

He didn't smoke banan peels, his parents didn't kick him out and he doesn't sleep in a dumpster or listen to Fallout Boy.

well i dont really listen to them, they are too much hippies for me. i think its big brother and the holding company, but janis joplin was their lead singer, Sam Andrew *(my uncle) was on guitar. along with another guitarist, and bass and drummer of course.
