Country Bluegrass Blues and Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers is the undisputed birthplace of American punk.
Country Bluegrass Blues and Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers intended to be a bar dedicated to just that. But somewhere along the line a bunch of kids with poorly tuned guitars turned up with some agitated poets, and the beginning of American punk was born.
After churning out punk icons like The Ramones, The Patti Smith Group, Talking Heads and Misfits for over 30 years, CBGB closed in 2006 and alas we can visit the world's most disgusting bathrooms no more.
But we still have the music kiddos.
Also, yes, Patti is in there twice and if Perfect Day doesn't make you cry you are a heartless heathen.
