Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Fuck This And Fuck That

I’ve said this before, but there are only two proper ways for a punk band to have a career: either make one record and break up, seeing it all for the joke it is; or make the same record over and over forever, hoping that people will finally get the joke this time.

The Ramones chose the latter, but the Sex Pistols took the easy path to glory. Never Mind the Bollocks might be a perfect album and unlike other short-lived bands, there is literally nothing else. The outtakes and unreleased stuff and ephemera is all uniformly shit.

If you only got one trick, it better be a good one.

  1. Amazingly, the Pistols are 75% alive and the Ramones are 100% dead.
