Who Was Blue Cheer?

Blue Cheer was an American band active from 1967 - 1972 and intermittently until 2009.  While very influential, Blue Cheers is difficult to define in terms of genera.  Influenced by blues rock, they also provided inspiration to the punk rock and heavy metal genera.

Their most popular single was also their first.  "Summer Time Blues" reached #14 in the US in 1968.  In later years Blue Cheer became embattled in a dispute about who owned rights to the band name.
