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.

 

Interivew:

 

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.

 

 

Why?

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?

Only reason he does this is to try and stay relevant. By highlighting the fact he spewing the same old shit, you're giving him exactly what he wants. 

 

The guy made adverts for butter, he's about as punk as Mariah Carey.

Not saying this because they've been dissing Green Day, but The Sex Pistols are a god-awful band. They deserve 0% of the praise they have achieved and are about as musically talented as your average X-Factor contestant.

I love the Sex Pistols music but not the guys, especially Rotten. He's a complete attention whore. So, I ignore him.

Lol is the butter salesman and Judge Judy star blathering about Green Day again? He's just an attention seeker.

 

Would've been amusing to see him "chase them out of a room" though, if that was true which I doubt.

everytime i saw Johnny Rotten bitchin about Green day I Remember of this

 

 

 

Johnny Rotten can't be paid enough
For Jones aren't the boys quite good, that's tough
Cook's body is old and almost heart attack
And they even let Glen Matlock come back

 

Such sentimental shit
And you're full of it - Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
You saw them from afar
Mclaren showed those english stars
You put them on a phony pedestal
And gave them your money
They are the multi million dollar joke
That ain't funny


To hell with the Pistols reunion
They're too old to rock'n'roll
Their songs will have no meaning
They're the establishment they once rejected

 

"And you thought that we were faking
That we were just money making"
Today old punks they just won't rate
Pistol's commercialism's out of date (we hate)

 

We don't shoot the same heroin
as Sid Vicious
The end

Coming from a man whose career, life and identity was created by Malcolm McLaren solely to sell clothes, this is pretty ironic.

 

Good. I'll explain it like this: There is a coathanger with leather jackets and studs. A vacuous statement.

This may be stupid,  but this is the reason I hate the Sex Pistols.  Not JUST because he hates Green Day, but because he's a bitter old man.  I can't enjoy music from someone like that.

He hates Green Day so much because they went and did the new version of what the Sex Pistols did, and made it way bigger than they ever did. Plain and simple. Too many people go and get pissed off by the success of a band rather than the band's performance.

That's a bit too much saying "They deserve 0% of the praise they have achieved and are about as musically talented as your average X-Factor contestant."

 

They made the album which made punk music start in the UK.
