Never mind the Bullocks

The Sex Pistols have made the 2006 list of inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Thoroughly anti-Establishment, the Sex Pistols might have objected to their induction if it had happened 30 years ago, but apparently now they are too old to fight the man.

Former Pistols lead singer Johnny Rotten once famously derided the rock and roll accolades as "a place where old rockers go to die", dubbing it the "Rock and Roll Hall of Shame".

On hearing of their impending entry, Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones, now 50 and a radio DJ in Los Angeles told Reuters: "If I was 20, maybe I'd be upset (about being inducted), but it's all part of the game."

Other inductees include Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd (both bands had been rejected 7 times! what the hell?!), Miles Davis, Blondie and Herb Alpert (it's all because of the album cover with the girl and the whipped cream, isn't it?). The official induction will take place on March 13th in New York City.
