  1. In a list book from I believe the mid-80s, renowned critic Greil Marcus called their album "Germ Free Adolescents" the #1 greatest album of all time. I think he was being a bit playful (for how can a more sober judgment deny the places on Mount Olympus belonging to the Gods such as Dylan, The Band, Van Morrison or Derek and Dominoes?) Even so -- along with the Buzzcocks, early Clash and Blondie, they were pretty damn vital and irresistibly original in their day.
