Link Wray V's The Mono Men
His 1958 million-seller "Rumble" is an intense, moody guitar instrumental intended to capture the feel of a gang fight. It had socially conscious groups petition to have the tune banned because of its perceived association with juvenile delinquency. Rumble reached #16 that year and established Wray as an artist, who is still touring today.
Bellingham, Washington's The Mono Men were one of America's best combos during the 1990's surf and garage rock revivalism and are equally proficient at proto-punk, surf-guitar and boozed-up R&B.
The Mono Men were also responsible for forming and running the garage rock label Estrus Records. The band broke up in 1998, but Dave Crider is now playing and touring with The Dts.
