A lot of counter culture music rebels are right wing. The Ramones were Republicans and if you watch Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld he has a constant string of punk rock and rollers who are conservatives or libertarians. It is more rebellious to buck the lib mainstream in the entertainment industry than these losers like Sean Penn and Oliver Stone going along with their mindless following.
The MC5 were "considered" to be left wing radicals because of their manager (John Sinclair) and because they'd played the 1968 Democrat Convention in Chicago (when the crowd had been promised The Beatles or The Rolling Stones). REAL left wingers called them out as not being fellow travelers and almost killed them at one New York gig. This too is addressed in the above book (begins with accounts of the VU, Stooges, MC5... then moves into NY Dolls, Dictators, et all which are years before The Ramones).
The revisionist take is that Johnny was a Republican (or a fascist if you are to accept the red diaper revisionist take) and that all of the rest were die hard liberals. Except Johnny was able to convince Joey to vote for Reagan in 1984 (which is one reason that Joey was upset by Reagan going to the SS cemetery).
Liberals are sold a socialist Utopian lie that is just as false as being promised 72 virgins in the afterlife.
