This fashion emphasized minimalism, which was a powerful influence on the New York punk scene of the 1970s and reflected the band’s short, simple songs. Heavily influenced by Andy Warhol scene and Avant-garde films and comic books seen as the ultimate American band. The band released 14 studio albums and inspired to 48 tribute albums.
