Why Kim Fowley isn’t more of a punk icon is one of the many mysteries of music history, not only was he thumbing his nose at everyone and everything years before it was in fashion,

but he managed to do it without anyone even catching on! Pay close attention to his lyrics on songs like ‚"Reincarnation,‚" ‚"Super Flower‚" and ‚"Flower Drum Drum‚" for instance.

That Fowley managed to mock the hippies as early as 1967 and pass it off as a serious contribution to the genre is just further testimony to his brilliance.

Ok, so he got a bad rap for manipulating and stealing from the band he would famously go on to form in the mid-'70s (the Runaways), but then again, you don’t have to be a saint to be a genius!
