    Iggy and the Stooges, maybe? Smearing peanut butter on your broken glass shard wounds is pretty punk.

    Link Wray took a pencil and poked holes in his speaker to create the first purposely recorded guitar distortion, in the 50's.....I'll stand by my man.

    Legs McNeil, who founded "Punk" magazine of course. He was the first to coin the term. Lottsa bands had punk attitude before the 70's, but I bet most would be offended if you called them "punk". Most early "punk" banks would be offended as well.
