Overview

The MC5 were one of the most explosive and legendary rock bands of the '60s. Formed as a Detroit garage band, they then became "house band" for John Sinclair's revolutionary White Panthers. The MC5 soon became a potent musical force in their own right, and with their rallying cry of "Kick Out The Jams, Motherfuckers!" they pioneered a devastating fusion of freeform rock and incendiary politics.

The Future Is Now!-written with the full cooperation of both John -Sinclair and lead guitarist Wayne Kramer-is the first book to tell the whole story of both the MC5 and the White Panthers, and is an essential document not only of one of rock's most revered bands, but also of the whole sociopolitical climate of late '60s/early '70s America.
