How large their output was shouldn’t matter. The MC5 aren’t being nominated for their large catalogue. They are being nominated for their work over a two year period.
You got me there. Personally, I love the Zombies, but do you put every Brit invasion group in? The Animals, Moody Blues, Dave Clark Five, etc., ect.
I hate the MC5. An average bar band who turned up the amps.
At least on record. They may have been great, but they do nothing for me on record. No personality whatsoever.
And I like that kind of loud, raucous stuff. I have tried. I really have.
