"Where Are They Now" as written by and Davies....
I believed in julie when she said how easy it could be
And I believed in Tommy and his written words of anarchy
And I believed in Joe when he said we had to fight
And I believed in Jimmy when he told us to unite

Where are they now
Where are they now
Where are they, six years on and they've all gone
Now it's all turned sour
Where are they now
Hollywood nights in Soho
Writing on the wall of The Roxy loo
Rotten on the telly
Showing what a few choice words can do
Was it ever worth it
Causing all the fuss
You know, I believed in them
Don't you believe in us

No more kids are innocent
We will get fooled again
Only faces ever change
The song remains the same
Was it ever worth it
Causing all the fuss
You know, I believed in them
Don't you believe in us

Where are they know....

    General CommentOK... Who is Julie? And Tony?
    Joe, is Joe Strummer. Jimmy, is clearly Jimmy Pursey.
    The second part talks about Roxy and stuff... And Rotten is Johnny Rotten. But... who are those two up there?

    General CommentJulie- Julie Burchill- an unpredictable british journalist

    Tony-Tony Parsons-another birtish journalist who wrote in large part about punk and the punk lifestyle.

    Joe -Joe strummer- the clash

    Jimmy- Jimmy Pursey - sham 69

    Rotton- Johnny Rotten- "on the telly showing what a few choice words can do" - - referring to when rotton swore on live televison.
