In a recent interview Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten put modern punk bands on blast, and called out Green Day by name.
When The New York Times asked the Sex Pistol's frontman about the state of modern day punk bands, he goes on to say that punk bands today are a "caricature" of what they used to be. He called out Green day saying "How many bands are out there like Green Day now? I look at them, and I just have to laugh. They’re coat hangers, you know. A turgid version of something that doesn’t actually belong to them.”
