Yea that rocks. Except for the fact that this is how the Sex Pistols have always made thier dough. It kinda' cancels' itself out. PIL had it's momments, but the Pistols' have a major lack of talent. Just cultural significance. Which should be down played in this day in age. I don't want anymore Green Day's or Box Car Racer's. Punk ended with Black Flag. The Dead Kennedy's was as good as it get's for punk. Die punk.

I don't like the Pistols at all, so I don't give a damn. Yeah, they were probably REALLY IMPORTANT for music in general (as has been spoon-fed to us by rock critics for 25+ years). Too bad their only album is a piece of shit. <br><br>The Clash were cool, though.

the sex pistols were fucking talentless, manufactured crap. The hype and romance surrounding them is so over the top it's ludicrous. They were terrible in every department and i think there's a difference between being rebellious punks and  annoying twats, the sex pistols were definitely the latter...more gunk thank punk i'm afraid

Not that i ever had any repsect for halls of fame but this just shows how irrelevant they are. The sex pistols did absolutely nothing for music whatsoever.<br>

They were and always will be imo, totally talentless wankers. I was reading an article in a mag recently by Malcolm Mclaren (god knows why, maybe I was bored) and he apparently thinks they were shite as well (as far as musical ability goes). I know there's no love lost between him and the Shit Pistols, but even at their height if fame, he still admits he thought they were shite.

PIL was okay, I kinda like that "Metal Box" album. <br><br>I still don't care a lot about punk music in general,with a few exceptions (The Clash did some cool stuff, I also like the Dead Kennedys in small doses). I do like the DIY ethics of punkrock (but that also wasn't all that revolutionary in hindsight, as jazz musicians had already been putting out private-pressed albums for decades) and the fact that you didn't need to be a virtuoso musician to record albums anymore. <br><br>What does suck is that punk actually made it uncool to be able to play more than three chords or a guitar solo. That attitude is still prevalent in rock journalism almost three decades later.

Had nothing to do with their musical abilities. They were manufactured anyway by Malcom McLaren, weren't they..? Whats hardcore about that?! Hahaha!<br>

At least the Monkees had a couple of decent tunes. Are they inducted yet?  ;D

He's been a sell out from the word go!<br><br>"After the fireworks of the previous two series, we couldn’t wait to see what the latest crop of stars had in store for us. John Lydon provided plenty of entertainment – although ITV bosses weren’t happy with his four-letter outbursts. When asked about the show, he quipped: “The odds are that we are all going to kill each other.” Happily no one did, but nothing could stop the former Sex Pistol walking out of the show, saying: “I live in a very different world, no disrespect to this game but I play a bigger one - or a smaller one."<br><br>What a tosser. :P<br>

Classic product band.  You guys ever read the write-up Dave Stewart did for the National Health liner notes?  Dave sounds a ton like Zappa in his conclusions.<br><br>From the notes...<br><br>"What Virgin had rightly divined, of course, was that this band had MUSICIANS in it, and by some unspoken inter-record company edict that persists to the present day, had decreed that musicians were bad news, and bands which sported them were NOT TO BE SIGNED.  Far better to sign up some good looking front person who's not particularly interested in music (like the record company) and replace the band, if there is one, with session players or MACHINES.  Then you can get down to the real business of making a HIT RECORD without all that music stuff getting in the way."<br><br>Not that the Sex Pistols had a good looking front man but it's the same end result.<br><br>We are all fans of the 1% market.  Too bad.

But in general they are just an excuse for lamoids to feel like they are outside the box. A boring riot of liberals. Zzzzz.
