May be the best punk band of the 1970s. I don't give a fuck about Ramones or Sex Pistols or Clash. Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers and The Germs were really good as well. I always listen to The Testors and they're just so fucking cool and I really love them. Songs just really sound good and not dated. I find them really addictive and almost indescribable in how they make you feel good. Good punk rock is the best drug!
