"We were part of a generation that was in total agreement that the direction of the country...was wrong," Kramer says. "Although there's less agreement today, there are a great many Americans who are saying, 'not in my name.' That's what we did as a generation and what we did as artists and musicians. You can't separate [our music] from that. That was the vehicle that gave our frustration a voice. The MC5 message was to take responsibility. Create something in the world, don't just take. "
