They looked glam sure; but if you listen, and especially watch their live shows on video you'll see punk through & through (with a little more talent in the writing is all)

My favorite punk band from that era is X. I also used to listen to T.S.O.L and the Dead Kennedys, The Stooges, Black Flag, The Clash, UK Subs.

I thought of the MC5 and the Stooges as early heavy metal-hard rock much like Blue Cheer. I'd compare the Stooges with Black Sabbath and the MC5 with AC-DC.

If Hanoi Rocks is punk then so is Mötley Crüe and Guns´n´Roses.

MC5 is more Proto-Punk and had some of the same time signatures and themes which led to punk.
Stooges fall in that category as well.
There is so many genres within a genre it is crazy.

Some of the bands I listen to and have listened to I can't name on here.
I hear punk elements in alot of later 60's music.
Although punk isn't my thing anymore like it use to be, I still highly respect it.

I saw M.D.C. last year and they were great!
MDC's This Blood's for You is one of my favorite cd's of all time. I'm not a big punk fan either.
