Rock'n'roll is so great that everyone in the world should think it's the greatest thing that's happening. If they don't, they're turds

The Cramps were an American punk rock band, formed in 1976. Their line-up rotated much over their existence, with the husband and wife duo of Lux Interior and guitarist Poison Ivy the only permanent members. The addition of guitarist Bryan Gregory and drummer Pam Ballam comprised the first complete band in April 1976. They were part of the early CBGB punk rock movement that had emerged in New York and named after the famous East Village night club. The Cramps are noted as influencing a number of musical styles: not only were they one of the first garage punk bands, they are also widely recognized as one of the prime innovators of psychobilly. The band split after the death of lead singer Lux Interior in 2009.
