Crime (as well as the Nuns) were formed before the word punk denoted a particular type of music. These bands
represented an older group of people who were bored with the status quo represented by the established order.
The Avengers and other bands that followed were presented with a opportunity to express
their ideas through punk. They were the first of many bands in west coast (USA) who thought of themselves as punks and
part of a new generation of rebellious youth.
Crime played their punk with several different "flavors" (for example Rock & Roll). Their line-up was: Frankie Fix (g), Johnny Strike (g), Ron Greco and Britly Black.
