You’re not going to get a full reunion of Detroit heavy rock pioneers the MC5 anytime soon—the majority of its members are too dead for that to happen. But the righteous anger and political fury of the band’s 1969 classic Kick Out the Jams are still sadly relevant to our modern era. Surviving guitarist Wayne Kramer is doing the next best thing: putting together an all-star lineup of fellow lifer musicians, including Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil and Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty, to bring these songs back to fire-breathing life to celebrate MC5’s 50th birthday.
