Last year the band, Black Sabbath, Miles Davis, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Blondie were all inducted into the Hall, with the ceremonies to take place in March. Many would say the recognition is long overdue.
Well, the Sex Pistols aren’t coming, writing the organizers a polite little note on frontman Johnny Rotten's site:
"Next to the sex Pistols, rock and roll and that hall of fame is a piss stain. Your museum. Urine in wine. We're not coming. Were not your monkey and so what? Fame at $25,000 if we paid for a table, or $15,000 to squeak up in the gallery, goes to a non-profit organization selling us a load of old famous.Nice to see a little of the punk attitude still alive – even if it is over something like a Hall of Fame induction.
“Congratulations. If you voted for us, hope you noted your reasons. Your anonymous as judges, but your still music industry people. Were not coming. Your not paying attention. Outside the shit-stem is a real Sex Pistol."
