I was caught totally off guard to hear the producers end Season 1 of Vinyl (HBO) with Kick Out the Jams. I felt good about it...and thought it befitting for them to end the season with a big jolt!
Perhaps that song choice legitimized the series...the part where the Little Bits band gets assaulted by the police while playing onstage looked a wee bit familiar....though the police at the MC5 shows were very REAL. Nice job!
Many thanks to HBO, Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terrance Winter....
Yes I’m starting to sweat
You know my shirt’s all wet
What a feeling
MC5, "Kick Out The Jams"
