The New York Dolls are an amazing band that are over looked by many people for no reason. they are great! they pretty much invented punk rock but the stupid velvet underground is considered the one who created that sound. The dolls should be in the rock n roll hall of fame!

And you made a thread just to say that? I think anyone who knows anything about rock music knows this.

The 'stupid Velvet Underground' are considered to have laid the basics for the punk rock sound because they were around a good few years before the Dolls. Both bands contributed something to the development.

Please don't call VU stupid, in my opinion they're a great band .

I saw a YT video of a Dolls song once, I didn't like it too much. Any songs that you guys can recommend who are more knowledgeable than I?

Any instrument can be 'punk', it depends on the way you play it. How can bagpipes be punk? Easy, listen to the Murphys.

They were 'punkish' because they were heavy for their time, they were in touch with dissonance, did some 3 chord songs and had the punk mentality towards everything. They were simple songs, but they were great and 'punkish' because of the content and attitude towards them.

I saw them live two years ago in Paredes de Coura and I liked it, although the vocalist was a bit weird...

The Dolls are great. Aerosmith pretty much ripped them off completely though.

I imagine Choo Choo from Top Cat singing this, with the rest of the gang in the band aswell.



Maybe Dibble could come in at the end, break it all up.

I know it's kind of ironic, a cartoon cat singing about being a human being but, thems the breaks.
