Sex Pistols Vs Rock Hall
antiMusic reports: The Sex Pistols have told the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where they can stuff their induction. Steve Jones, Johnny Rotten (John Lydon) and Glen Matlock have each spoken out about the induction of the band next month at a "gala black tie affair". 

Steven Jones opened his radio show on Los Angeles Indie 103.1 on Friday with these words, "We're not going to the museum. You can shove it. You can have it," according to SexPistols.net. 

Glen Matlock told The Independent on Sunday, "It's nothing to do with the bands - it's all to do with business. When I first heard about it I was quite excited... but then I found I was going to have to pay thousands of pounds to take my kids. It's just a big corporate event, a bunch of Herberts in suits... just a money-making opportunity for multi-million shysters."[for the most punk rock response see the full story link for Johnny Rotten's comments]- Click Here for the Full Story
