        I find punk a bit one dimensional. I have the Ramones self titled and find I really like half the tracks but find the rest too repetitive. Same with the Clash's debut. I don't mind Bullocks by the Sex Pistols and do like London Calling but it's not completely punk. The Jam are probably my favourite punk band if you can call them punk. For hard rock, I love Zeppelin, Deep Purple, early Van Halen and early Kiss. Then there's Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Soundgarden and Arctic Monkeys for alternative. I've probably missed a few though as I have a very broad love of music.

          The Jam were a Mod revival band-but with an edge and attitude as Paul Weller described them at first- The Clash recorded their first album in one weekend/The Ramones the same and their three chord sound became their trademark - Pistols had more time in the studio and a better producer in Chris Thomas and assistant Bill Price -Steve Jones said it was lucky that Sid Vicious was ill(jaundice) during the recording as Sid couldn't really play the bass so Jones did all the guitar/bass bits - Jones was and is a very good guitarist still

          Richard Branson- Virgin records co founder wanted the album(Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols) to be a classic and to put Virgin records on a higher profile to attract other artists (only had any real success before with Mike Oldfield's Tubular bells Album) - Virgin records was sold to Thorn EMI in 1992 and later sold to Universal Musical Group in 2012.

          I suspect Nirvana's Nevermind album title is a reference to the Pistols album


          Sex Pistols - Never Mind The Bollocks
          Kurt Cobain- "The Pistols' album has the best production of any rock record I've ever heard. It's totally in-your-face and compressed. All the hype The Sex Pistols had was totally deserved - they deserved everything they got. Johnny Rotten was the one I identified with, he was the sensitive one.
          The only reason I might agree with people calling our band "The Sex Pistols of the 90's" is that, for both bands, the music is a very natural thing, very sincere. We haven't produced a totally original sound like that. We might be uncompromising, but that's about it. We're an obvious metamorphosis."
