    Maybe only Michiganders can appreciate these guys.

    Everyone loves the Stooges but seem to forget about the MC5.

    ..better watch it while its up, there were and still are a lot of complications in producing the documentary.


    I feel stupid for asking this, but please can anyone tell me the song at the beginning of the film that Fred Smith plays and sings.

    If you're going to act like a patsy troll on this board, then just commit to your schtick and your character. Otherwise just commit to the person you really are which must be a person who loves music history if they are an MC5 fan.

    You can't have it both ways, especially when you've committed to acting like such an extreme Nancy Boy. :pie:

    if their frontman was better looking, they would have had a more successful career.

    That's probably true, but the documentary shines a lot of light on a band dynamic that wouldn't have been a good formula for popularity to begin with....the fact that at the beginning they we so overtly political, that they were uncomfortable in the studio, that they all wanted such vastly different things.
