"Pushin' Too Hard"
You're pushin' too hard, uh-pushin' on me
The Seeds are considered by many as the first proto-punk band of the 1960's (but that can be argued a bit because of such groups as Boston's the Standells and some other American groups going back to 1964 that tried to imitate the sounds of the Beatles and came up with their own garage nearly punk sounds). But the Seeds' top ten hit of 1966, "Pushin' Too Hard" is a great example of the experimentation that existed in the mid-1960's amongst many garage bands trying to combine a harder edged 1950's sound with the psychedelic sounds just starting to emerge from California from such groups as Jefferson Airplane and Jimi Hendrix Experience and the remnants of the sounds that the Beatles left from the British Invasion. In that sense, "Pushin' Too Hard" almost seems ahead of it's time, and might have fit in well in the late 1970's punk sound and even the early New Wave sound of the early 1980's. "Pushin' Too Hard" would get a revival later in the decade of the 1960's when it was used in the soundtrack of the motion picture, "Easy Rider".
