The Cramps are the greatest rock n’ roll band of all time (maybe you’ve heard me say that before, though!). The band was started in 1976 by Lux Interior and Poison Ivy. They played alongside Patti Smith, the Ramones, and the Talking Heads as a part of the CBGB/Max’s Kansas City first wave of punk rock scene. The Cramps represent the coolest, and most bizarro mix of rockabilly, horror, 50s kitsch, and teenage fun (everything that rock n’ roll is supposed to be about Bono!). Who else would play a concert at a mental institution?! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the greatest band in rock n’ roll history … The Cramps!
… and why aren’t these guys in the Hall of Fame?!
