The Sonics - Boom (1966)

The Sonics - Boom

The Sonics are one of the most powerful, hardest, and dirtiest sounding bands of the 1960s, and are often credited with inventing what we now call "punk rock."  In 1966, they followed up their explosive 1965 debut lp "Here Are the Sonics!!!" with their second album, "Boom."  While Boom doesn't have any tracks that stand out to the level of "Strychnine" or "The Witch" from their first album, it is still loud, powerful, monster of a record.
