    Re the OP's "All hits were pop".

    Not to me they weren't!

    Pop. Top 40. My vinyl collection probably beats yours.

    I didn't realize these guys were so funny looking ... nor Bri'ish:

    iPod worthy!
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Remember Chandler's Flock of Seagulls hair? And Ross's "band"? (A Casio, I think, LOL.)

    I loved Friends.

    LOL @ FOS video. Production Cost: 200 GBP

    Cocaine cost: 600 GBP

    Surplus 500 GBP used on make-up!

    That's a great song and a low budget video.

    If you google Flock of Seagulls hair, things got much weirder.

    Joe Strummer was the soul of punk rock.
    And the truth shall set you free.

    RIP Joe. LOL @ that forehead curl. Joe's surprisingly inarticulate, he must have lived inside his head a lot. Simonon is better-spoken, but doesn't want America to see his teeth. What adorable, earnest, talented guys.

    They were awesome. I bet they hated the Pistols for co-opting and trashing their movement.

    If you had any Pistols memorabilia I was gonna put you on Ignore.

    Punk was ppl that got too loaded to play instruments they couldn't play sober. MacLaren's rehearsal room must have stunk to high heaven.

    That's why I don't classify Clash and Ramones and Duff McKagen as punk. They played music and punk was noise.

    That feels better. The Pistols tainted punk; it was just attitude and noise. Attitude is fine but take a damn shower. J Rotten was disgusting-Vicious was atrocious. I always reckon they had to sink the boat used on God Save the Queen footage when the Pistols were done. Ugh.

    Don't get me started on disco LOL. That's how punk got a toehold, disco sucked and ppl got angry! Ppl call gnr punk, Slash is a master musician, always has been. Slash = the anti-punk, except for the attitude.

    LOL @ cockblocking the Pistols. If they'd had musical chops they'd have overcome that. Even Ozzy overcame it, when Sharon mailed human crap to an industry board meeting. If you can't tour or play on albums the industry will indeed put you on the street!
    Punk means rubbish and the pistols lived up to it
    however the new wave or new romantics meant that guys needed to look like puffs.
    More of a U2, Ska fan for me

    Without Ska and Reggae, there would have been no Clash. It was a core inspiration for their music.

    Here is a classic Music Video (Round And Round) from the 80's when MTV played music.
