In a recent interview with New York Times Johnny Rotten went IN on "modern" punk, and Greenday wore the brunt. And by brunt, we mean they were absolutely destroyed.
"It is embarrassing, really," Rotten started "spiky haircuts, trying to keep 1978 alive."
"How many bands are out there like Green Day now? I look at them, and I just have to laugh. They’re coat hangers, you know. A turgid version of something that doesn’t actually belong to them.”
"I’ve never been a fan of them,"
"I just don’t understand it. I think it’s kind of a tinny, two-bob version of something that was far deeper and carried more significance. And, uh, that for me, as a band, they’re not very significant. They’re a mélange. They’re closer to Billy Idol than myself."
Holy hecka. That's a whole lot of BURN.
Do you agree with Johnny? Or think he's coming on a little strong?
