When he sang "Pretty Vacant," Johnny Rotten claimed the right not to work, and the right to deny all the values that went with it - perseverance, ambition, piety, frugality, honesty and hope. The past that God had invented work to pay for, the future that work was meant to build- there was none. --Situationism and Rock, Paul Fitzpatrick (October 2000)

BiographyJohn Lydon (born January 31, 1956), also known as Johnny Rotten (a nickname coming from the state of his teeth) was the iconoclastic lead singer of the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd (PiL). With his leering, swaggering and sarcastic manner he laid down a new template for rebellious youth and band frontmen that continues to be imitated today. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Lydon [Feb 2005]
