    Well put, M2.

    I'm gettin' too old for the Punk/Not punk thing.

    It's all rock n' roll anyway. It was meant to be primal, offensive, challenging, and sometimes downright scary.

    Not the least of all, it should make you feel like doin' stuff with someone you dig, or even just met.

    If it doesn't get you in touch with your own humanity, it's not Rock N' Roll.

    The Clash were pretty freaking human, and they were pretty freaking Rock n' Roll.
    Forget about the punk stuff.

    Looking at a list of the Duke's collaborators over the years, it's hard to determine when he would have ever been exposed to "bad music."

    I mean, it's not like he's been dropping by my local watering hole on karaoke night.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    It's all around us, just turn on the radio.
