Born to Irish parents, and the eldest of three brothers, John Lydon grew up in a tiny council flat in Finsbury Park, North London. A melting pot of English, Irish, Scottish, West Indian, Turkish and Greek immigrants.Before John could complete his O Levels he was expelled from Catholic secondary school for daring to question teachers and refusing to toe the line. He attended Hackney & Stoke Newington College of Further Education, then later Kingsway College, to finish his exams. Where he met Sid Vicious.

It is a well-worn story that John was spotted wearing a "I Hate Pink Floyd" t-shirt and invited to audition as singer for a fledgling band that had been pestering Malcolm McLaren to manage them. If John hadn't joined the Sex Pistols back in 1975 they would have been a very, very different band. Things just wouldn't be the same at all…

Which is made meaningless by the fact the ginger cunt went on I'm A Celebrity and is now whoring himself out for Country Life Butter. Crap music in the first place, aside from Pretty Vacant (of any integrity lolololol).

Some people dislike him for the butter adverts, but if you think about it, what could be more punk? Appearing in a butter commercial was the most atrocious and unexpected thing ever, but isn't that what punk is all about? Doing your own thing and not caring what anyone else thinks?

Or not.

By being defined by the mainstream, it is still controlled by the mainstream. If something like punk did exist, then it would not change as trends come and go. It would continue regardless of mainstream.

Punk as we know it has collapsed into itself and become everything that punks once hated.

ehh... I don't think you understand.


Well, a paedophile isn't the most mainstream of people, are they? I mean, their whole sexuality is actually DESPISED by the mainstream, yet they persist with raping children. I think that's pretty bloody punk.

I meant music, clothes attitude etc. I'd of thought anyone with common sense would have found that clear, but maybe you did and you just want to difficult and obtuse

Then again, your statement was somewhat abstruse. Ah, I love that word.

Al-Quaeda is punk.
