I think The Sex Pistols are great because they didn't give a shit about what people thought of them. Johnny was extravagant, Steve was outrageous, Glen was the one who didn't last long
Paul was the quiet one and Sid was the rebel
Even though he couldn't play that fucking bass!

Yeah they were good for the time. Did you know that it was thanks to Queen pulling out that they got that now infamous Bill Grundy interview slot?

Personally I think they were utter crap and they only got media attention thanks to the way they created controversy.

Now, 'The Clash' and 'The Ramones' those are real punk bands.

I bought Nevermind the Bollocks: Here's the Sex Pistols in the 7th grade, that would have been oh about 1988. I liked it for a year or so, it was a phase for me.

Well.. they were the ones who started the punk movement in England and thanks to the Pistols we had bands like The Clash who were much more talented as musicians and especially as songwriters.
The Sex Pistols were fun but they never took neither themselves nor the music seriously enough to last.
The Clash are the real legend. God bless Joe Strummer!

Love 'em. Which other punk band went down in history? The Clash maybe but you never hear of Sham 69, The Slits, Buzzcocks. Unless you're in my house of course.


Guess who's back?

And unless you're a fan of German (punk) rock band "Die Toten Hosen"

:-)

I love Sham 69! They were way better than the Pistols. It's a shame they didn't get further.

The Ramones went down in history but ok they were the first ones anyway.

I don't give a fuck about punk, and I'm sure that's the way punk artists like it.  What self respecting anarchist would want folks like me listening to them just because they're 'history'?  

What crap!
