It's just glorified juvinile delinquence.
Have you listened to any Link Wray yet?
I suggest you watch this crap quality video of a spinning record of 1958 on Youtube.
So Link Wray was a pioneer of early rock and roll for the american badasses, which went on to influence the sound of punk and new wave music. . . He learned to play slide guitar from a travelling black carnie.
The traveling black guy who plants the seed of good music seems to be quite the trope in this sort of American music history.
Everything I have heard by Link Wray fails to disappoint me. I really love anything that sounds like this.
