Personally I think the Sex Pistols are still a lot more talented the Kanye!
Most overrated "band" ever. 70s kids liked them because of their rebellious attitude; had nothing to do with their musical ability.
Iggy and the Stooges, a "metal" band? Come on John. They may have influenced a certain number of metal acts, but they're a far cry from, say, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden or Metallica...
I SAW A PIC OF JUSTIN BEEBER WEARING A SEX PISTOLS T-SHIRT!!!!! What does Johnny Rotten have to say about that?
I remember reading an article that interviewed Nancy's father. He said, Sid, came over to see nancy . he couldn't even tune his guitar, much less play it
Note to Jon Wiederhorn, the author of this article: PIL was not "launched in 1992". That band was formed in 1978, shortly after the Pistols' demise.
I used to love the Sex Pistols when I was a teenager... Then when I got older I realized their music wasn't really good. AT ALL. I guess it was the attitude I was attracted to, not the talent. They had TONS of attitude.
John Lydon is dead wrong about being the first to have him or music described as "punk" music The electronic NYC duo Suicide first used the term "punk music" in a flyer for a concert in 1970. Iggy and the Stooges were most definitely not a "heavy metal" band. The Stooges and the Sonics are the starting points for would would become punk music, although the Velvet Underground had elements of a punk sensibility as well. The VU was the template for all indie music, art rock and punk rock to follow.
These Yahoo writers act as if everybody in the world is anti Trump. Just like Brexit was a fluke as well. The media's delusional view of the actual pulse of the world is astounding. Liberalism is being plowed under worldwide.
The Stooges weren't punk? The MC5 weren't punk? The Ramones didn't matter? Look johnny, I liked the album and I liked PiL but you're so full of yourself. I thought the Sex Pistols were good until I discovered the Clash and later Black Flag and the entire California punk scene. You're just a one-trick pony that's gotten old and is desperate to remain in the limelight. Retire gracefully and stop trying to pretend your fifteen minutes of fame haven't long passed you by.
