Probably The Stooges (and later the Dolls) in attitude, but I've gone Hell/Television for style.

Some interesting options Al!

Nice options, still not sure who to vote...  :-\
The Adverts were the first real punk band, weren't they?   ;)

Copied this over from other thread; Alan said:

The Stooges; can't believe this was recorded in 1969 when I was 7...

Can't believe it was recorded when I was born!!!

Some others (VU, Kingsmen - only know their version of Louie, Louie) sound "soft" compared to the Stooges. Guess I have to vote them...
