Sex Pistols say No to Hall of Fame

Published: 2006-02-27
Most bands are honoured to become a part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but then again most bands are not the Sex Pistols.

The always controversial Sex Pistols were to be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year but have refused.

In a hand written statement full of spelling and grammatical errors with language not repeatable in polite company, the band essentially indicates that they will not be at the Hall of Fame induction and do not wish to be inducted. The message is posted on their official website.

Though the band was highly volatile and only together for a short period of time in the seventies they quickly became one of the most influential punk bands. Embodying the British wave of the Punk movement the Sex Pistols were a huge influence on bands like Rancid and the Libertines.

Though the band essentially broke up in the late seventies they reunited several times to tour in 1996, 2002 and 2003.

Other bands and musicians that will be inducted into the Hall of Fame include Black Sabbath, Blondie, Miles Davis and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The honours will be handed out March 13 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York.
