The MC5 was ahead of their time and had a lot of influence on acts that followed. However, apart from "Kick Out the Jams", they are an act most people know little about and I'd even venture that more people know the name of that song than have actually heard it. They put out three albums in their late 1960s/early 1970s run and didn't get any commercial success, not even a Top 40 single that still gets oldies or classic rock radio play. They're a mystery to most people, the band you've possibly heard of and are told is important, but which you haven't listened to. It should not be surprising that they're not getting many fan votes.
