Word on the street has it the Sex Pistols are planning a concert in the middle of bombed-out Baghdad...
"The Sex Pistols suck, we’re more punk than they ever were."
Billy Joe Armstrong, Green Day
"I created Punk for this day and age. Do you see Britney walking around wearing ties and singing punk? Hell no. That's what I do. I'm like a Sid Vicious for a new generation."
Avril Lavigne (Seventeen Magazine, 2002)
"People are like, 'Well, she doesn't know the Sex Pistols.' Why would I know that stuff? Look how young I am. That stuff's old, right?"
Avril Lavigne (Entertainment Weekly, 2002)
‘Britney Spears is as punk as that silly Lavigne bird. I never, ever cared for Green Day, with their ice cream van and huge video productions. As far as I’m concerned, anything that’s MTV-led I worry about. MTV is like a headless chicken.’
Johnny Rotten (MSNBC, 2003)

nominates people it creates death. It’s to our benefit that they’ve ignored us.
Joey Ramone — Sad. These are nice people. It’s not true “the good die young”
‘cause I’m the living proof that that’s not the case.
