    did the sex pistols kill punk rock?

    Thank you Blind-fitter, its good to be back. But can someone tell me how I can get an avatar? Yes boredom Carl. But what I often wonder is where did the boredom come from? Is boredom hieghtened somehow during the teenagers/young adult's experience? Or was their brand of boredom something unique to 80s culture? Or was the boredom generated from something else? Personally I think if someone is bored then its their own damn fault.

    What were the 80s really like?

    When the 1980s began basketball players wore their shorts in a tight-fitting manner, with their socks up to their kneecaps. High school boys wore mullets in a non-ironic style. There was no AIDS then, no HIV, no al qaida, no jihad, no hole in the ozone, no genetically engineered animals, no Savings and Loan scandal. There was also no Mtv, no CNN, no ESPN, no HBO, no celebrity televangelists, no millionaire athletes, no personal home computers, no Nintendo, no Playstations, no cell phones, no gangsta rap/hip hop, no ‘sampling’, no grunge, no emo, no “alternative rock”, no compact discs, no digital music, no Prozac, and no artificial heart transplants. The one thing we did have was Classic Rock...But by the end of the decade all of that had changed.

    Rockism: Good or Bad?

    Yeah, I think you were right. My wife filed for divorce in spring of 2007. Two months after filing for divorce she told me she was pregnant with our daughter... http://generation-add.blogspot.com/2012/04/why-everything-you-think-you-know-about.html

    What are the TEN best punk rock albums ever made?

    Thanks for the compliments. I actually like alot of so-called 'punk' albums to. But my point was simply that the album format is not the best way to experience punk...but I could be wrong...
