The MC5: Kick Out the Jams (Elektra)

Miller Francis jr., Great Speckled Bird, The, 17 March 1969

"Works of art which lack artistic quality have no force, however progressive they are politically. Therefore, we oppose both works of art with a wrong political viewpoint and the tendency towards the 'poster and slogan style' which is correct in political viewpoint but lacking in artistic power." 
— Mao Tse-Tung
