Why they might be annoying
They were hippies.
They experimented with drugs.
They weren't known very well outside of their hometown of Detroit.
They celebrated the holy trinity (sex, drugs, and rock & roll) into excess.
Their manager, Sinclair, was known as the 'King of the Hippies' in Detroit and was the founder of the White Panther Party, a political faction espousing 'total assault on the culture by any means necessary, including rock & roll, dope, and fucking in the streets.'
They debuted with a live album.
Why they might not be annoying
It must've been damn cool to live in Detroit with them and the Stooges being in that area.
They helped form punk and garage rock.
