Responding to Greil Marcus and the "Sex Pistols were really Situationists" argument, John Lydon / Johnny Rotten has this to say in his 'authorized autobiography 'No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs':
"We didn't sit around and wax Situationist philosophy. Never. I understood who the Situationists were. Jamie Reid was very into it, but I always thought it was foolishness - art students just being art students. The Situationists had no situations - no rules, no regulations. That's their apparent philosophy. But the trouble was that they thought about 'organized' chaos. They were too structured for my liking, word games and no work. Plus they were French, so fuck them. I don't know what the big palabra was about the Situationists, anyway, Mind games for muddles classes."
