We have previously talked about Iggy Pop and the Stooges and their role (in the late 60s) of laying the groundwork for the Punk movement that would rise in the mid to late 70s. Somewhat forgotten in this timeline are the groups that carried the punk flag during the early 1970s. The Dictators were one of those groups and deserve a lot of credit for the survival of the Punk sound until the Punk revolution that would occur several years in the future.
Today’s Two’Fer Tuesday post highlights one of the Stooges’ best songs, Search and Destroy, and The Dictators’ cover of that same song. As always, let me know what you think!
