[ # ] You can never take the punk out of Punk Rockers!
March 9th, 2019 under Epix


Epix is doing a docuseries about the story of Punk Rock that debuts on March 11th and they invited the Rockers to talk about it on a panel. This short interaction shows anyone who is not familar with the genre how it got its name.

John Lydon aka Johnny Rotten threw it in Marky Ramone’s face that he is not an original member of The Ramones, to which he replied by saying that Sid Vicious was the true star of the Sex Pistols. That is a low, but true, blow. Name another type of musicians that would go there. It would be like Michelle Williams saying to Joey McIntyre that you are not an original member of New Kids on the Block and him saying Beyonce was the true star of Destiny’s Child. We all know that, but you would never say that to her face. Which is why I love Punk they don’t care.

Now, I am going to say something that could get my ass kicked, but I like Public Image Limited aka PIL more than Sex Pistols. Although, I like PIL and The Ramones equally as much. With the NYC Punk scene closed down, I might be able to show my face in Manhattan again after typing this. I wish I could have experienced the Punk scene in its prime but I was too young and too preppy.
