Count Five was a garage rock band that became famous during the mid 1960s. They are best known for the hard-driving proto-punk smash, "Psychotic Reaction" (1966). The band often wore Count Dracula-style capes when playing live.
Formed in 1964 in San Jose, California while all members were still in their teens, the hitmaking lineup consisted of Craig "Butch" Atkinson (drums), John "Sean" Byrne (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Roy Chaney (bass), Kenn Ellner (vocals, harmonica), and John "Mouse" Michalski (lead guitar). Count Five released one album, "Psychotic Reaction" (1966), and several singles before disbanding in 1969.
