The term "psychobilly" was first used by Johnny Cash in his song "One Piece at Time, " hit the Top Ten of 1976 . 3 would pass to be used to define the genre a few years later, when the Cramps described their music as "psychobilly" and "rockabilly voodoo" on the posters of his shows. Although the Cramps rejected the idea of being part of the psychobilly scene, they, along with artists such as Screamin 'Jay Hawkins and Meteors , considered the precursors of the movement. Musically speaking, there was also the background scenery garage rock and pub rock since the '60s and early '70s, not to mention the artist better known as Legendary Stardust Cowboy , a precursor of psychobilly.

With a member who was part of the rockabilly subculture, others involved with the punk subculture and a third who was a fan of horror films, musical ideas gathered and formatted the genre as it exists today.
