Black Monk Time is the debut studio album by Germany-based American rock band The Monks. It was released in May 1966 through Polydor Records and was the only album released during the band's original incarnation. The album's subversive style and lyrical content was radical for its time and today is considered an important landmark in the development of punk rock. In 2017, Black Monk Time was ranked the 127th greatest album of the 1960s by Pitchfork.

The Monks' music sounds so inevitable on Black Monk Time that it's easy to forget how unlikely the band's story is. For these five guys to find each other in the Army and subsequently devote themselves so fully to such a unique sound, and for two advertising executives to find them and push them to get weirder- well, there's a reason that even with every incredible change in popular music during the 60s, there's only one Monks. Their one album was revolutionary, but sparked no revolution, due to circumstances beyond the band's control

Black Monk Time" is the product of a group of seemingly deranged American GIs stationed in Germany. However the quintet started out as a traditional American cover band in Germany (the Torquays). Over time the band mutated into The Monks. So what do The Monks sound like" The Monks could be described as a five piece rhythm section with a guitar, bass, drums, electric banjo and organ that pound every instrument in their possession. But bass player Eddie Shaw said it best: "We got rid of melody. We substituted dissonance and clashing harmonics.
