The MC5 was a hard rock band that came out of Detroit, USA in 1966. Their blend of furious hard rock and intense political sentiment was a critical influence on the punk rock movement of the 70s. Standing for "Motor City Five", MC5 established themselves with their first album, Kick Out the Jams, recorded live on October 30 and 31, 1968. The album caused some controversy due to the title track Kick Out the Jams rallying cry of "kick out the jams, motherfuckers," and John Sinclair's inflammatory liner notes.

Top shelf musicianship, razor sharp songwriting and a total lack of concern for the confines of the genre, make The Meat Purveyors one of the most entertaining and energetic outfits plying the dark corners of the roots underground. For the better part of a decade, Austin's The Meat Purveyors were the skunk tossed into the tent of stoic bluegrass revivalism. Always more Brothers Ramone than Brothers Osborne and more comfy in boots jack than cowboy, TMP are still able to out-lament most of the current crop of high lonesome pretenders.

Burroughs, and poets like Allen Ginsberg and Charles Bukowski. Waits is often compared to Charles Bukowski, being similar both in content and lifestyle, although Waits's views are more egalitarian than Bukowski's.
