Sex Pistols to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:
Not Bloody Likely

By: Spacelab Research Staff
U.K. punks the Sex Pistols have returned a shot to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame over their upcoming induction. In a posting to their web site, they've announced in grandiose U.K. punk fashion that they will not be coming to the ceremony.

They posted a hand-written scrawl that reads: "We're not coming. We're not your monkey and so what? Fame at $25,000 if we paid for a table or $15,000 to squeak up in the gallery..."

And it goes on. So they've declared in a very indirect and abstract fashion that they're punk, their upstarts, etc etc etc. But where is the punk of yore? A web scrawl seems a very easy way to send a harsh statement of adhereing to a conservative punk aesthetic, but why not show up and cause a riot instead?

Black Sabbath, Blondie, and Miles Davis are included
in the list of inductees for the ceremony on March 13th.
I guess we know who won't be present to accept
their award...
