Bands playing garage punk differed from the garage rock revival bands in that they were less cartoonish caricatures of '60s garage bands and their overall sound was even more loud, obnoxious, and raw, often infusing elements of proto punk and 1970s punk rock (hence the "garage punk" term).
Garage rock and garage punk coexisted throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s with many independent record labels releasing thousands of records by bands playing various styles of primitive rock and roll all around the world.

 Greg Shaw, 55, a champion of garage rockers, renegades - The Boston Globe
LOS ANGELES -- Greg Shaw, a music entrepreneur whose passion for raw, spirited rock made him a pioneer in the independent record label field and a prophet of the current ''garage rock" resurgence, died Tuesday in Los Angeles of heart failure, his record company announced.
Shaw's real passion at the time was a brand of '60s rock that was heavy on attitude and attack, the kind of music most famously compiled by writer-musician Lenny Kaye in the 1972 album ''Nuggets," two LPs full of cult classics by the 13th Floor Elevators, the Blues Magoos, et al.
Shaw dubbed it ''garage rock," a reference to the classic location for teenage band practices.

Despite having one of the most confident and cleanest sounding garage rock records, the band inexplicably failed to chart, despite four singles of similar, professional quality and a fine 1966 album.
If the title had been "Garage Rock of the 1960's" it would be clear you intended the plural, with or without the apostrophe.
Of course the larger cultural context makes it unlikely any native English speaker would interpret "1960's Garage Rock" as a reference to only the year 1960, but for the benefit of any readers who might not share that cultural context, it would be more clear to leave the apostrophe out.

This cultural history of a single rock tune is an exercise in modern legend-making that also tells 'the story of rock 'n' roll in a nutshell.' For Marsh, the official investigation of the allegedly obscene lyrics in 'Louie, Louie' prefigures current efforts to censor pop music.
In Marsh's view, the 'protopunk' sloppy recording of the song 'is the most profound and sublime expression of rock 'n' roll's ability to create something from nothing.' Down and dirty, the Kingsmen's version frightened parents and inspired a thorough FBI investigation based on the underground circulation of spurious vulgar lyrics.

(While the American midwest produced many of the best-known examples of garage rock, there were many bands in that style coming from the West Coast and Australia.) Since they were usually young and amateurish, the results were much cruder than their inspirations but their music was full of passion and energy.
In fact, nearly all of the bands were forgotten in the early '70s, but the Nuggets compilation brought them back to the spotlight.
This movement died down at the end of the decade but there was another revival in the 2000s with bands like The White Stripes, The Hives, The Strokes, The Libertines, The Datsuns, The D4 and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club owing more than a little to the style.
