Geta loada this.  First punk song ever!
"Seven and Seven is"  by Love. 
Written in L.A., smack in the middle of the reign of flower power, in '66.  Ferocious and brilliant!

OK, I'll give you guys the fact that the Buzzcocks, Stranglers, and others were around early on too, and may also have developed the punk sound. But the Ramones pretty much defined the sound of punk, and still do to this day, even though they looked the opposite in some ways (and they're not the only punks to have long hair--Iggy and even Mick Jones had it at one time). It's funny, 'cause in interviews the Ramones said they were influenced by classic rock (WHo, Stones, Beatles) but were just stripping it down and playing louder. They also defined the DIY ethic of punk, which says that it doesn't matter what you look or sound like, as long as you're being individual and original. Check out California's Minutemen (early to mid-80s) for the ultimate DIY punk/jazz/rock/folk/funk/blues band! _______________________________________________
