have you realized that "rock stars" always seem to lie so much? john lydon once said he cared, but he never really gave a fuck, said he'd use the money he made so that people could "have somewhere to go", but now he lives in the usa and snorts coke after the show- why is it that "rock stars" always seem to lie so much? joe strummer once said he cared, but he never really gave a fuck, said he'd use the money he made to set up a radio station- to make the airwaves full of something more than shit, have you noticed we're still waiting?- you must realise that "rock stars" always seem to lie so much, some will always tell you that they care, but they don't really give a fuck, still you suckers don't ever learn that rock stars deal in money not truth, it's good business to exploit you, just look at lydon or strummer for proof.

    General CommentWe have a really big problem now. I doubt whether most of us can even relate to this rant, as inured we are to MTV. This was written in 1982. Is this a 1984 moment?

    General CommentThis song is as true today as it was when written. It will always be true.
