Nevermind the Bullocks

Rolling Stone : Sex Pistols Flip Off Hall of Fame

After being denied entry five times, the Pistols were ushered in as part of a Class of 2006 that also includes Black Sabbath, Blondie, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the late Miles Davis. The twent-first annual induction ceremony will take place on March 13th at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.”

If someone asks me whether I’m a Democrat or Republican, I answer “I’m a Ramone,” but it’s absolutely asinine that the Pistols weren’t the first punk band inducted, and then had to wait six years before finally getting the nod. So now Johnny gets his chance to spit on the Hall for overlooking the band that put punk on the map:

The Pistols, who played their first gigs in 1975, took a decidedly more self-destructive approach to music than punk predecessors like the New York-based Ramones. For a little more than two years, they pummeled their way through four-letter-word-laced TV appearances, bodily-fluid-spilling airport adventures and songs, like the anthem “Anarchy in the U.K.,” that walked the walk so many of their peers merely talked.

Part of the Hall of Fame “fuck you!” message:

“Next to the SEX PISTOLS rock and roll and that hall of fame is a piss stain,” the statement read. “Your museum. Urine in wine. Were (sic) not coming. Were (sic) not your monkey and so what?”

That’s my Johnny! None of this “older, wiser” horseshit; he hated them then, he hates them now.

The statement slammed Hall of Fame voters as “music industry people,” and excoriated the high price of attending the exclusive event — $25,000 for a table, “or $15,000 to squeak up in the gallery.”

God Save the Sex Pistols!

It concluded, “Your (sic) not paying attention. Outside the shit-stem is a real SEX PISTOL.”

The original scribbled out response to the RnR Hall of Fame’s invitation is here.
