Johnny Rotten, the lead singer and some would say brains behind the Sex Pistols, said that he wanted to kill rock. In his time it had become another commercial product that had become meaningless through repetition and dilution of context. It was another pointless institution, with gates guarded by the record industry.

That’s why when he was drafted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he refused to be in it, because it was the same tired rock n roll circlejerk that he’d been disdainful of his entire career.

Maybe he didn’t kill the popular conception of rock. But the energy he brought into destroying the popular notions of what was rebellious, and the desire to do it himself even though he wasn’t even good at it, inspired SO MANY people who then went on to form their own punk bands. And most of these people are the ones we still recognize as “rock” artists; the Lemonheads, the Descendents, the Buzzcocks, Joy Division, and Morrissey.

Sasho, Oasis too was reportedly inspired by the Sex Pistols.

I love Johnny Rotten and actually count him as one of the thinkers who takes me to a higher existence, watch him talk about killing rock:

and stonedragon, right on

Yep. Liam Gallagher’s attitude was compared with that of Johnny Rotten. By looking at this video I can’t help but notice his nutty stare.

“The thing that gets me, is in Rock’n’roll you own your sexuality. In pop music you say ‘You can do what you want to me.’ Rock’n’roll says ‘I’m gonna do what I want to YOU.'” – Joan Jett

Genres are just like ideologies; limiting and biased. Give me a guitar or bass, a good vocal mic, let me plug in, and get the hell out of the way! m/

@beyond, If your into Oasis you should check out The La’s, if you haven’t already, they were a brit pop band just before oasis but not many people listen to them, maybe because they only made one album (they are still working on the second) but what a fucking album.
You might know this song:

but this one is my favourite:

or this;

by the way, best Oasis song;

@chekovchameleon, I’m liking these tunes. I’ve always liked Digsy’s Dinner. A lot of energy and just feel-good song.

Topic-wise, I don’t care whether it lives or dies. I like the stuff that is around already.

Guns N’ Roses and Led Zeppelin. That’s true rock. Rock and roll died like back in the 90’s. But, that’s just my opinion.

That’s why I only listen to 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s music. To me, there’s no good music in my generation.
