Seriously. I get the sinking sensation that you people only like them because every other punk says they are the grandfathers of punk (oh the irony of that....)

But let's face it, the Sex Pistols were the original manufactured band. Stealing the creativity of a burgeoning genre solely for the profit of the man who put them together.

Besides, The Clash were superior in every way, lyrically, instrumentally etc.

I agree with you about all of this..

I dislike the sex pistols as shit on toast.

I like the clash as beacon on toast :)

I agree to the fullest extent. I've always despised the Sex Pistols, and have never believed that anyone who claims to love their music can be telling the truth. All image, no talent.

Back when I went through my "punk phase" I tried to like them just because they were punk. Everybody said they were gods but I could never get into them.

They're said to be a major punk group but indeed i only like "Anarchy In The UK", "God Save The Queen" and their "My Way" cover.

Amen.

Plus they were formed by their manager if my knowledge serves me correctly, which is something that's done with popbands nowadays.

I still like Sids cover of 'My Way'. But yeah, fuck that grandfathers of punk argument. I hate when somebody says "Liek, omg, sex pistols invented punk" and you say "No, the stooges did" and they're like "wtf is that?"

Ugh, punk kids need to die.

You make a good point, I hate it when people just like a band just because they are the grandfathers of a genere or something like that.

They're OK, but I am really getting fed up of them now. Their music, really is just, well, stupid.

There are still some fairly decent tracks off The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle (and I like the film), but they're definately not the Grandfathers of punk. All they really did at the end of the day was shout down a microphone.

Although, musically, I wouldn't say the Clash are punk, their music is ultimately better and talented. The Clash are great!

I ain't heard much of them, but I Got A Right is a good song. Offspring's cover could have been worse, in my opinion.

Oh the Offspring are alright. I just stopped listening to them for 2 years, and now I think Americana is an alright album. Plenty of stuff to sing along to.

The clash was such a more musical, and talented band.

The sex pistols had very little musical talent.

The only song I like by Sex Pistols is Anarchy In The UK. I bought their CD for that song, and I don't really like the rest of it. They're okay, but they aren't great.

PFFT. Omg. The riffs the Ramones used on self-titled were all COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM EACHOTHER!1!!!Shiftone!1!!evelvin!!!1!@

The Ramones may not be the best, but they're fun to listen to. Beat On The Brat is my cousin's theme song. :D

I don't give a fuck about who are the grandfathers of punk, or whatever: if a band sounds good to me, then that's enough. The hystorical background of them is the less important, therefore I don't count it as a valid argument to like/dislike the band.

But I DO like sex pistols, I had nevermind the bollocks, and listened to it for a while... until my car radio was stolen, with the CD inside. It's fucked up, I know. Don't worry, I borrowed another from a friend a few years ago, so I have it again!

complicated riffs = fucking awesome kick ass songs?!?!?! :confused: NEVER.

EDIT: Take a few songs of The OFfspring from their ignition album. Most riffs are very easy. And they're MUCH better than a few of their newest songs, more "complicated" and much more elaborated.

Playing Sex pistols bass doesn't make one a decent bassist. Far from it. No matter whether it was steve jones or not. Glen Matlock could play his instrument. That's about the best that can be said.

09-21-2005, 10:39 PM
Let's be honest, it wouldn't have mattered if Sid played the sodding triangle, that wasn't the reason he was there... If they wanted someone who could actually *play* the bass, they wouldn't have got him...

T-6005
09-21-2005, 10:40 PM
I think we all agreed on that a while ago... it's the basic premise for talking about bass in the sex pistols. Everyone knows he couldn't play worth two shits. Or even one.

Stop whining. I never said I disliked them, just that I am going off them. Iggy Pop's original of I Got A Right is MUCH better than a lot of Offspring songs.

Oh, and I almost forgot. Shut up, mutant face.

You all fail at life, the Pistols were fucking beautiful. If not being able to hold The Clash's jock makes one terrible then all but 5 bands in music history were terrible. For shame, this is the oldest, lamest, "See, Matt, you don't know the history of punk; I do", argument. And it was bullshit the first time too.

Ozy, I seriously tried to like the Sex Pistols back when I was going through a punk phase. I have like 3 of their albums. And it's just terrible. I don't care who was first or did what, it's just not good to listen to. At all.

I think people should be allowed to express their opinions. There is NOTHING perfect about any band, be it Metallica, the RHCP or even (in fact, especially) the Offspring. Like I said, I am going off them and yes, I have said a few negative things about them, but I don't hate them. If you are such an oversensitive shallow prick who can't except other people's opinions, or don't even have the courtesy to ignore them if they do say anything bad about your precious pop-punk band (it is the internet after all, faggot), you have no right to instruct other people, look down on them, or judge their intelligence.

Jeez, I even used to think you were OK and openly said so, even when everyone else on the board was ripping you, and now you act like a complete fucking 'tard because.... I don't like the Offspring?! This is Other Bands after all, not General Offspring Discussion, so it's not like I am trying to deliberately provoke anyone.

I actually enjoy listening to their songs every now and then, but yeah, very overrated.

Download London Calling by The Clash. If you don't like ti straight away, listen to it again and you will. Also: Should I Stay or Should I Go (off Combat Rock) and I Fought The Law (off s/t) are good songs. Download these (or the albums) too.

I haven't bought any Clash albums, but someone sent me Disk 1 of London Calling, and I heard the other two I mentioned.
