Since when is The Velvet Underground a punk band?

1. The Clash fucking kicked ass.

2. What about political bands? Are you telling me that a band like the Dead Kennedys shouldn't have talked about politics when that was a good part of what they sang about? I'd say Pearl Jam is a fairly political band too, so why would it be out of place at all for Eddie Vedder to voice his opinion on politics?

That's a good point. If a band is already political, then the fan base is, consequently, politically-minded and it is part of the reason they enjoy the bands in the first place. From there, it becomes a "chicken and the egg" problem. Is the band popular because people already shared their political views and said band is their voice or did the band push their views and the fanbase become tainted or, in the extreme, become the band's voice? Or am I over-emphasizing the political influence of bands? With the preponderance of "Rock The Vote" commercials I've been seeing, I'd say that I'm pretty close to the mark.

Well, if we're going to talk about this, I hope your signature's some kind of joke.

Gas station attendants, being well versed in world economics and geo-political issues, know full well why the price of gas per gallon is as high as it is ... seriously.

Don't let my lack of social scruples fool you Ronnie, I've always been an elitist. Weeping, creeping Christ, I drive a Jaguar. I am an admitted Anglophile.

Ever have I ascribed to aristocratic and patrician ideals, principles and tastes.

Bravo!

So was the big secret in the thread supposed to be that Johnny Ramone was a conservative, or is there more?
