This is England


god save queen

As I was getting ready to leave for work this ┬ámorning I heard on the radio an interview with John Lydon talking about his new book, Mr. Rotten’s Songbook, which includes the lyrics to every song he’s ever written, from his Sex Pistols days forward.

Fun fact: Lydon says he got his nickname, Johnny Rotten, from the green, decayed teeth he had when recruited for the Sex Pistols.

So for your Friday, here’s a John Lydon and, given the events of the week, Brexit-inspired playlist featuring the Sex Pistols, The Clash, and Billy Bragg.
