an awesome punk band from the 70's, that did not invent punk, nor define it, (the clash and ramones did that) but made it hard for many bands to follow up to their degree of punk royalty.
the sex pistols rocked and are rocking generations to come, but the clash was better...

A corporate puppet manufactured band who did not even know what anarchy meant and just sung about it because they were told to. Did not start up punk contrary to popular belief. Did however have a big influence on the british music scene which had some excellent bands form. Johnny rotten is fuuny as fuck and although was a member of the corporate machine which he constantly sung against earns my respect because he is funny.

Was one of the most influential british punk rock bands fom the 70s. The original line up consisted of the lead singer Johnny Rotten (real name John Lydon) guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook and bassist Glen Mattlock. Glen was later replaced with Sid Vicious (real name Simon John Ritchie.) Some of their songs include God Save the Queen, Seventeen, Bodies, EMI, Holiday in the Sun, and probably their best known Anarchy in the U.K.. In 1978 Sid was accused of murdering his american girlfriend Nancy Spungeon. A few months later while awaiting trial in 1979 Sid passed away of a heroine overdose and Nancy's murder was never solved. This probably marked the end of their historical rein on the punk scene in the 70s.

A manufactured punk-rock group from the '70s. Even though they were Malcom McLaren's puppets, even though they couldn't play their instruments, even though Sid probably DID kill Nancy, I still love them.
And y'know, they were just as manufactured as Avril Lavigne is. "God Save The Queen" is as catchy as "Sk8er Boi", though "God Save the Queen" pissed off a lot more people.
The Sex Pistols are a good group, but the Ramones and the Clash are real punk.

The greatest sellouts in the history of music, a 'band' made up of four of the least talented people ever to make music, they were manufactured simply to promote manager Malcolm McLaren's shop. Had some guy called Sid Viscous on bass, who despite being loved by idiots everywhere, was actually unplugged when the band played live because he was so poor on his instrument.
Go listen to the Clash instead.
