    I don't get around any loud music without ear plugs now.
    It's a challenge when some stuff is too low and other stuff too loud.
    Hyperacusis is the worst of the big ear damage issues for me..

    Because that's only 50% of the band ;)
    And remember: the whole point of punk was to not be "good".

    I never got that memo and I've been part of the punk scene for 30 years..
    And Paul was more than adequate as a drummer.
    So you have Sid, who sucked and was in the band all of 30 seconds - and Johnny who did what he did pretty much to perfection.

    After the Pistols Steve and Paul went on to form The Professionals with Paul Simonon and it was obvious they were suited for non-punk music as well..

    Dude...you're a smart guy...you know what I meant. Don't try to make me overexplain on a sports forum. And yes I get that even though Johnny can't sing he's had a great career of that and has never stopped recording AND selling.

    Even though the Sex Pistols were essentially punk's first boyband, I still think they're better and more influential than Slayer.

    Don't know any SP songs. But slayer isn't influential or different than any other Mediocre metal band from the 80s. Anthrax is the worst of the major harder metal bands from that era. Can't even stomach listening to them, casually.
