The Cramps are an American rock band, formed in 1976. Their line-up has rotated much over the years, with the husband and wife duo of lead singer Lux Interior and lead guitarist Poison Ivy as the only permanent members.

They were part of the early CBGB punk rock movement that had emerged in New York. By being the first known band to blend punk with rockabilly, The Cramps are widely recognized as precursors of psychobilly. Furthermore, they are also regarded as innovators of garage punk.

Their music is mostly in blues form, played at varying, (though usually fast) tempos, with a very minimal drumkit.[citation needed] An integral part of the early Cramps sound is dual guitars, without a bassist. The content of their songs and image is campy, trashy Americana (alternately in the style of filmmakers John Waters and David Lynch), sexual fetishism, clever bad jokes, and cheap, retro horror B-movie clich?

Their sound was heavily influenced by early rockabilly and proto-rock and roll like Link Wray and Hasil Adkins, 1960s surf music acts such as The Ventures and Dick Dale, 1960s garage rock artists like The Standells, The Gants, The Trashmen, The Green Fuz and The Sonics,[citation needed] as well as the post-glam/early punk scene from which they emerged. They also were influenced to a degree by The Ramones and Screamin' Jay Hawkins, who is often credited for having pioneered their style of theatrical horror-blues.[citation needed]

In turn, they have strongly influenced subsequent punk and rockabilly revival bands, even creating a genre in their wake. "Psychobilly," a style played by bands like The Meteors is a term coined by the Cramps, although Lux Interior maintains that the term does not describe their own style.The Cramps also influenced or anticipated acts like Black Lips, The Birthday Party, Flat Duo Jets, The Fuzztones, The Gun Club, The Horrors, Inca Babies, James Chance and the Contortions, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Reverend Horton Heat, and The White Stripes.
