OK - this is a quick one, but in honor of my recent explosive second prize from D.Generate's Hey PUNK! contest, I am offering a sampler of whatever the hell I decide to send out to the first person (who doesn't have prior knowledge :rolleyes: ) that can tell me what song # 17 on the CD D.Gen put together for me is.

The collection is titled "Some old random Punk"

Hint: The song is easily the oldest on the CD, by about seven years if I am not mistaken.

BTW -D.Gen is obviously excluded, as is anyone else who may have gotten the same song on a CD from DG lately.

MC5 kick out the jams?

I will edit this to say that this song isn't on the CD DGen sent to me.
Outstanding guess, but no. Still too late.

How 'bout two guesses per day. (though i will be disappointed if it goes more than a day...)

God Save the Queen - nope. though Anarchy in the UK is probably second or third oldest song.

VU/Nico - Waiting for my man - ohhhh, right time frame, probably within a year or so of recording date, but no.

SEANGAR IS NOW OUT UNTIL MIDNIGHT! This should give the rest of you a chance, as he is probably honing in quickly.

Tell you what, I'll give you guys another hint about this as soon as I can get this peanut butter off my keyboard...

How about something from the early NY scene? Velvet Underground's Heroin. 'Cause (IMHO) what would a punk compilation be without early Lou Reed?

To tell you the truth, I am not quite sure which hit streets first. They're both '69, but I think Stooges was out a few months before 'Jams... If I recall there was some tension at White Panther Party HQ cause they were pissed that the local upstarts had gotten released before MC5... but I don't have any corroboration other than memory here, and mine's pretty hazy too.

There was also the problem of getting an album that with the word MotherF__er distributed at all. I think it is probably safe to say that Kick out the jams was written earlier, though... but regardless, its not on D. Gen's disc.

As for Lou Reed, I can see how he is a strong Punk influence, but I have a hard time calling the VU punk. Musically, I just don't think it hits the aesthetic. NY Dolls - probably, MC5 and Stooges - Defininitely. But I personally put Lou more on the Glam side of things with Bowie and T.Rex. The Dolls would be a 50/50 split, though I certainly consider them a punk precursor.

Oh I agree with you that the VU isn't punk, and certainly not DGen's taste in punk if it is, based on the CD he sent me. They show up on punk lists nonetheless and I just couldn't think of anybody earlier than the stooges or MC5. The Dolls were there too, but I thought they were a bit later.

Anyhow, it was fun thinking about the roots of punk.

Cool contest! I'm glad I put some Stooges on there now, it's nice to see I hit a favorite.

I usually just throw crap together with a vague idea of a theme if I'm making a cd, I certainly don't mean them to be definitive. I like Velvet Underground and have some old albums but I don't necessarily consider them punk. I think they were definitely influential and involved with the fledgling scene, but a little bit separate from it.
