British Punk Rock- RIP?

In light of the recent TV advert featuring Johnny Rotten, I am inviting you all to sing along with an updated version of the Sex Pistols second most famous song:

To the tune of Anarchy In The UK

Intro: da da da da, dadada da da da da

I was an Anarchist

Now I like real butter on me toast

I know what I want and I know where to get it

The chiller cabinet at me local shop

Cos I wanna be

Having buttered crumpets for me tea

So many ways to get what I want

A muffin or scone, with some homemade jam

Sit in the parlour with a nice cup of tea

As long as the butter is made in the UK

Cos I wanna be

In bed by three (in the afternoon)

Big guitar solo, then refrain

No flora

No flora

No flora for me

Or marge, it's cr8p..........

    As a old Teddy Boy from the 1970s, punk died the minute it was re-named New Wave.

    I posted this on the message boards but got no replies.

    As th original Angry Young Man of punk he turned into the Angry Old Man, but then he did Get Me Out of Here and he's softened up.

    Stop pulling angry faces John ,take the money and laugh all the way to the bank.

    Punks, Teds, we were yesterday(the 70s) nothing is the same 30 years on.

    Punk died in '77, with a minor revival in the early 80's.

    That's why people moved on, as they always do. It's why post-punk and no wave came about. And then died. And revived a little while back and will probably die again soonish, since everyone seems to be catching on now. If you don't know what I'm talking about, don't bother.

    *Edit: Your contemporary punk is, with few exceptions, corporate. Yes, I know there are truly underground bands that hold true to the original concept, but even they are mostly just engaging in teenage rebellion against their parents, are burnouts, or are too minor and behind the times to truly be significant.

    Punk rock was a money-making scam in the first place. Live with it.

    As Rotten himself said , "Ever had the feeling you've been cheated?"

    all you've done was made fun of his age and the fact that he's British...

    at least make something about him selling out

    btw, punk is alive and well, just look beyond the mainstream "punk"

    The best punk band was The Clash and they didn't even class their self's as punk.
