Sex Pistols prove they’re still punk

I’ve never been a huge punk rock guy, but always admired the punk ethos from a distance. Well, the legendary British band, the Sex Pistols has just given a thumbs down (or was that a middle finger up?) to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their website says, “We’re not your monkeys, we’re not coming. You’re not paying attention.”

I am quite amused by this, really. I never got the concept of a hall of fame in the first place . . . especially in Cleveland. I will say that if I had a day to kill and I was stuck in Cleveland, I’d probably go – because what else are you gonna do there? But the point of it all escapes me. Especially when it comes to punk rock, where I guess some would say that if you were famous enough to get elected, you know you’ve sold out.

I’d link to the band’s website, but uhhhh, I tried one URL and got a “Don’t enter this site unless you like naked people” warning page. Instead, you can read the BBC article here.
