Inspired trio of choices!
I voted MC5, not because they are my favorite band of all time, not because I even necessarily prefer them to the Cure (I may have a greater affection for the Cure, ultimately), but...because of their abundant and unmissable chemistry.
There are clips of them performing in their day that are just mind boggling in their...oomph, I guess. I'm certainly not gonna come along and vote against that.
That "Brother Wayne" has been dining out on the same handful of self-mythologizing anecdotes for nearly half a century now does not in any way diminish the "Fuck - this shit is explosive!" potency of their thing.
