    Someone talked about it on the shoutbox, and i thought it was so funny that i needed to post it here

    I always knew Johnny Rotten was an idiot and a sellout, here's another proof :
    [video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mSE-Iy_tFY&feature=player_embedded[/video]

    After failing to "wanna be an anarchist" like he used to sing, he is not recycling himself in the publicity industry for capitalist product !!!

    i almost pissed in my pants when i saw this video...





    Yes that's right, punk is dead
    It's just another cheap product for the consumers head
    Bubblegum rock on plastic transistors
    Schoolboy sedition backed by big time promoters
    CBS promote the Clash
    Ain't for revolution, it's just for cash
    Punk became a fashion just like hippy used to be
    Ain't got a thing to do with your or me

    Movements are systems and systems kill
    Movements are expressions of the public will
    Punk became a movement cos we all felt lost
    Leaders sold out and now we all pay the cost
    Punk narcissism was a social napalm
    Steve Jones started doing real harm
    Preaching revolution, anarchy and change
    Sucked from the system that had given him his name

    Well I'm tired of staring through shit stained glass
    Tired of staring up a superstars arse
    I've got an arse and crap and a name
    I'm just waiting for my fifteen minutes fame

    Steven Jones, you're napalm
    If you're so pretty vacant, why do you smarm?
    Patti Smith, you're napalm, your write with your hand
    But it's Rimbaud's arm

    And me, yes, I, do I want to burn?
    Is there something I can learn?
    Do I need a business man to promote my angle
    Can I resist the carrots that fame and fortune dangle
    I see the velvet zippies in their bondage gear
    The social elite with safetypins in their ear
    I watch and understand that it don't mean a thing
    The scorpions might attack, but the systems stole the sting
    PUNK IS DEAD. PUNK IS DEAD. PUNK IS DEAD

    I love that one - It's quite old though, he has made another one since :p

    I love it. He wont let people tell him how to act, and to define how he should live or work. I think it's cool to say fuck the expectations like that.

    Yes yes, Crass and all the other anarcho punk bands hates Sex Pistols and such, but that's an whole other part of the punk scene.

    I laughed at this video (for it being sad, and that it was funny) who cares if hes doing a commercial, id like to see one of you turn down a commercial add, especially when they offer you a couple hundred dollars, hell maybe a thousand.

    P.S., toast is fucking amazing! :rock:

    The sex pistols were ALWAYS a capitalist pre-fab band. Never a punk band, at all.
    At best they were a boy band.

    Ah the butter commercial, he got buried in shit after that. I do admit that I like his attitude a bit, not that I do promote it, but he's comical at times.

    "You need me, I don't need you."

    Can we say that he's a sell out? Clearly he starred that commercial for money/fame. Did I mention that he appeared on "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here!" or something, which he quit/got kicked off after insulting the audience and the participants? Or the time when he starred on RottenTV?

    i dont agree capitalism is defined as a movement out of yankee revolutionaries its a conservative one lydon is nothing but a socialized cash from chaos anarchowhore

    he doesnt wear blue and he doesnt entertain about yankee fucking revolution or anything conservative that is the history of capitalist revolutionary chaos hes just another cash from chaos socialist or liberal republican anarchoopportunist

    who cares anyways lets move on to more underground music topics

    capitalism is just another tired race value and revolutionary opportunistic shit on life to keep us all seperated from fucking the life we choose

    punk is fucking cash from every element of race chaos you can think of and always will be

    postpunk is dead who cares if rotten rots and decays anyone who thinks rotten is todays punk or postpunk has got to be fucking out of it

    Crass doesn't get to have an opinion. Their very existence is a publicity stunt.

    He never really was an anarchist in the first place. Sure, I don't think agree with him schilling products in silly commercials like that, but he always done what he's wanted to do, and I respect that.

    Do you have the same views you had 15 or 20 years ago? I'm not denying he's a capitalist, but some people change.

    What I meant was I respect his attitude of "This how I want to do it, and if you don't like it, tough shit."

    Sigh. Once again, Ungovernable, it's always black-and-white with you. Left or right. One extreme or the other. I'm not going to waste my time arguing with you. Good day.

    I have to say, even though Bill Gates is one rich guy, he gives fucking heaps to charity. When we are stuck in a capitalist society, we need rich people who will donate millions upon millions to charity.
