PUNK icon John Lydon has attacked US rockers Green Day as foolish. Lydon, 56, who performed as Johnny Rotten in the Sex Pistols, said Green Day are vacuous and play watered-down music.
What do you think of new punk rock bands?
I hope you don't mean Green Day.
I could add Green Day to the list.
Good. I'll explain it like this: There is a coathanger with leather jackets and studs. A vacuous statement.
Previously done better, didn't need to be duplicated and watered-down. That's the present Green Day.
I don't believe them at all. I find them very foolish. I chased them out of a room once.
Because they turned up at a fashion award which I didn't believe in, and couldn't believe they believed in being there.
This really sucks because Sex Pistols have been a source of inspiration for Green Day BUT their members regularly take digs at them.I even remember Billie wearing a Sex Pistols T Shirt once in a photo for instagram. I don't understand why these guys hate Green Day so much.Rotten took a dig at Jay-Z too, but I dont care about him.What's your say on it?
