Acclaimed rock band MC5 earned a nomination for the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2020. They formed in Michigan back in 1964.
This marked MC5's fifth nomination for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an honor they have been eligible for since 1991. The eligible band members for the nomination include Michael Davis, Wayne Kramer, the late Fred 'Sonic' Smith (the husband of Patti Smith), Dennis Thompson, as well as Rob Tyner.
MC5 (also known as Motor City 5) are credited for kicking out the jams and for politicizing every bystander insight. Their powerful sound was a distinct combination of R&B/soul, psychedelia and garage rock with dominant political messages.
They have been nominated alongside 15 other musical acts, which include Thin Lizzy, Pat Benatar, T. Rex, The Doobie Brothers, Todd Rundgren, Depeche Mode, Judas Priest, and Soundgarden, among others.
