The Stooges, a Detroit proto-punk band played an influential part of the creation of Garage Punk, popular in the early 1960's across Northern America. World-class bands such as Motorhead and the New York Dolls mixed a sonic background and style to revise the Garage Punk scene back into the mainstream in the early 1990's.

Fast based, guitar riffs and the rebellious lyrics are the elements that have built Garage Punk, which is a subgenre of Garage Rock. Mixed with punk rock and proto-punk, many of the bands of this genre play underground setting themselves apart from the mainstream outward punk scene.
