388. The Fugs

One of the first underground bands that gained attention, the Fugs played their brand of Rock and Roll ripped with satire and coarse language in an era where that was unheard of. In a sense, the Fugs were responsible for injecting a Proto Punk attitude and can be argued were a new type of “Shock Rockers”. Clearly ahead of their time, they helped to launch a series of innovative lyricists, though likely just as many bad ones.         The Bullet Points:   Eligible Since: 1990   Country of Origin: U.S.A.
