Psychobilly came to light when the Cramps used it as a marketing slogan on one of their early gig posters. They became the face of modern Psychobilly although the themselves tried to distance themselves from the label they created. Psychobilly at its heart is a nod to traditional Rockabilly with a blend of one of Rockabillys many offshoots Punk rock. The new generation of Rockabilly was played with more emphasis in distorted guitars and even faster uptempo beats, like Rockabilly, Psychobilly is played with an upright bass, guitar, minimal jazz influenced 4 piece drum kit.
