Suzi Quatro! From 1973! Oh Hell yeah!
Suzi Quatro was one of the first female lead singers and guitarists of a real rock and roll band. She was the queen of leather rock! She also plays a mean bass guitar. I can’t help thinking this is actually punk rock. But it’s only 1973. This is really pre-punk like the New York Dolls. It’s all coming from the same place. Let’s face it, glam was pre-punk, and Suzi Quatro is glam rock!
Similar acts from around the same time are Sweet and Slade. Sweet is downgraded nowadays but I really liked them back in the day. Slade is also very underrated. Sort of a glam AC/DC.
None of these songs mean much of anything. They’re just silly, dumb songs to rock and roll too. But rock and roll was never intellectual.
Real rock and roll (not prog, folk, country or metal) is sensual and experiential. It’s the music of the pure ID.
Music to fuck to. Fucking music.
There’s a reason for that beat. It’s the beat of sexual intercourse. BAM BAM BAM BAM. The early haters of rock and roll figured this out quickly,and that was one of the main reasons why rock was hated so much all the way back to Elvis Presley.
Back in the 1970’s all the mafia produced porn back then had hard rock soundtracks going on through all the fucking and sucking. There’s a reason for that.
It’s because it’s fucking music, music to fuck by.
Or in the case of punk rock, music for people who like to fuck and fight!

Listened to this quite a bit today
Any fans of Oingo Boingo? I’m partying to Pointer Sisters now.
1980s- The greatest decade of music. I even like Black music from 80s.
I love Oingo Bingo. I saw them live with the Talking Heads! In 1979 at UCLA! Punk rock was barely even getting started, and most people knew nothing about it or were not into it. If you were into it, you were considered a freak and a lot of people sort of rejected you in a sense. We were real outsiders. It took balls to be a punk because so many people hated punks and their music. You always felt like you were the only punk in the group no matter where you were.
The Talking Heads were awesome! Oingo Boingo was also really good!
Nothing Bad happens to me(why should I care?)
Just another Day (probably my fave)
Golden era of music for me is 1977-1986.
My favorite decade or 10 year run for music.
I woudn’t be so narrow minded. Actually, even Jazz was accused of the same thing. The Nazis even banned Jazz calling it Jewish/nigger music. Basically your popular types of music have been associated with heathen behavior, so to speak, so it has gotten the wrath of the religous and the racist people (Henry Ford was even one. He criticized Jazz in his anti-semetic book he put out.)
Oh why would people be so hard on Elvis when the Jazz they had been listening to for half a century was basically no different, at least as far as being party and get down music?
Ragtime, Jazz, Rock, hip-hop, disco, It’s all party music. People were jamming to snoop dogg and AC/DC in 1910 😆
Rap is party music? Shit, in your country, parties must be very boring.

To me, real punks were from England and, in all case, Europe (not all countries but probably many). Had to be with being a poor urban young. In England and many European countries, in late 70s and 80s, punks were mostly like this, from working-class and underclass (although there were people from all social classes). In United States, punks were more from middle-class, from typical nice suburban areas. It wasn’t something from ghettos, like, after, hip hoppers. Obviously worst neighborhoods in England are not compared to worst ones in United States, but equally, British punks were from those places, and American ones not. And probably, in United States, punk rock also were not something from poor rural areas or poor neighborhoods in towns/small cities, like were related rockabilly (talking about rock and roll, because surely country is most popular music genre there).
But I’m saying real “punks”, not real “punk rock”. Obviously punks were related to punk rock, but it wasn’t necessary being punk to play or listen punk rock. In fact, members of first punk rock bands weren’t punks (those from Ramones for example).
The punk subculture was from London, and Sex Pistols was fundamental.
