Sex Pistols: we're not your monkey

The Sex Pistols have opted out on appearing at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...

..."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?"

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."

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

Other 2006 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame include Black Sabbath, Blondie, Miles Davis, Lynyrd Skynyrd and industry executives Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss.
Oh, so now the most manufactured McLarenized bunch of monkeys in the history of punk is not an industry monkey and outside the "shit-stem" [though I like that one - very 70s]? Fuck you, you fucking toothless rotters!!

About 6 weeks ago, I played the Sex Pistols for my 12-year old, who was already amazed that I knew about those punk rockers, Green Day.

She wasn't impressed by the Pistols.

I told her that I preferred the Clash, and played her some of "London Calling." HOF: 2003.

She wasn't ready.

And you call yourself a philosopher! How dare you decry the authenticity of the band overturned conventional metaphysical notions of authenticity itself with Sid Vicious's aphorism. "Reality, what a concept!" It's the starting point from which Hacking takes off in _Representing and Intervening_.

Or rather the above after better proof reading.

I'm still trying to figure out how Blondie got in there. Who's next, Duran Duran? Tiffany? UB freakin 40?

Murky - I just checked my copy - you're right, I never noticed that. Changes entirely my view of Hacking ("fooking rotter").

Rodger - see how she does with Wire's "Pink Flag."

Roxtar - at least Miles finally made it, given that he was one of the greatest rock stars of them all.
