Lydon Still Upset With 'Silly Fat Kids' Green Day

LATEST: SEX PISTOLS frontman JOHN LYDON has repeated his criticism of GREEN DAY, insisting the trio would not have survived when punk was at its height. Lydon has become a scathing critic of BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG's San Francisco, California group, calling them "plonk" in a recent interview, and now he insists the trio are just "silly fat kids." The GOD SAVE THE QUEEN rocker says, "(They're) sticky tape on a duck's a**e. "They wouldn't have survived it (punk heyday). We had to earn the wings. We made it easy for them to come in and nick things from us. Silly fat kids. "It was hard times we went through for them to come and nick our ideas."

Well it looks like someone's got something up their bum. at least green day weren't put together by a corperation. at least they can actually play their instruments. and besides, they are not fat. and i don't think a 33 and 34 year olds count as kids. i mean have you seen mike dirnt? he's so skinny. he's just jealous cuz green day still look youthful.

I love the sex pistols as much as the next guy..But come on..He is as old as my grandfather and is probably on lots of meds. dont worry, We forgive your ignorance old man! Besides..The sex pistols were NOT the first band to speak out against the government of any sort. So maybe he should stop saying they stole ''his'' Ideas, idiots. And if anyone says that greenday didnt work for what they have now...They have an IQ of about 7.0

Lydon makes me sick like Walborne. Stop living in the past you fat old wanker! Haven't you died and gone to hell yet? Fat kids?? Pathetic! Get a life and stop trying to ruin others'. I actually used to like you and your band but now that I know about the little fat kid behind you, I'd like to shoot your eyes and leave them in the road for my dog to eat. f**k off and stop talking s**t about people!Mander Commander

johnny? Man i love him but he just seems a little jealous. He should be thanking Green Day for getting a new generation interested in the sex pistols.
