Sex Pistols Snub Hall Of Fame
The Sex Pistols- They Did It THEIR Way!
Sex Pistols Snub Hall Of Fame!Feb. 27, 2006
Only one thing will be missing when the infamous Sex Pistols are inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame on March 13, 2006. The Pistols themselves.
According to a note posted on frontman Johnny Rotten's website, "Next to the Sex Pistols, rock and roll and that hall of fame is a piss stain. Your museum. Urine in wine. We're not coming."
The Sex Pistol's induction into The Hall comes via the enormous impact of their one and only album- 1977's "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here Comes the Sex Pistols".
On it, a sneering Rotten and his mates rage through songs about anarchy, self destruction and rebellion, simultaneously spitting in the face of the music establishment and creating a punk springboard for all bands that followed.
The album served as a wake up call for a generation of angry young music fans who felt alienated by increasingly complacent, radio friendly music that had lost it's Rock bite.
Although the volatility that made The Pistols great also caused them to break up soon after, their influence has continued to inspire new generations of rockers, including Nirvana and Green Day.
The Pistol's decision to flip the finger to the Hall isn't a huge surprise. Perhaps The Pistols, eligible for induction since 2001, are upset about not being voted in sooner.
Their punk credo, however, has always been about defying the mainstream and rejecting the status quo. Give them credit for being consistent.
Members of Black Sabbath, Blondie and Lynyrd Skynyrd are expected to attend to accept their own inductions into The Hall.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Twenty-First Annual Induction Ceremony will be held Monday, March 13th 2006 in New York at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
