The MC5...
Truly, one of the greatest bands to come from Detroit. These guys, along with The Stooges and The Amboy Dukes, still put Eminem to shame.

There's a story in regards to the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago in which a rock festival was supposed to take place. Out of all the bands that were scheduled to perform, The MC5 were the only group that actually stayed and performed.

You have to respect bands like The MC5 for having the balls to stick around and play knowing that their gig was about to become a war zone.
