Because You’re Not Doing Anything Important Anyway…

posted by on April 28 at 12:41 PM

Check out this blog’s list of 10 great moments of Punk Rock on TV, including Fear’s SNL performance (featuring a very young Ian Mackaye), the Sex Pistols on The Today Show, the Ramones on The Simpsons, and members of the New York hardcore scene appearing as guests on Donahue circa 1986 (“I dunno how some dude in a $300 dollar suit can know what hardcore is about when it comes from your heart.”). It comes with clips of everything too, so you can waste a good half an hour watching history.

Not mentioned, the Cramps on 90210 (they played a Halloween party at the Peach Pit, sadly I couldn’t find video…), and the many GG Allin talk-show appearances. For example, here he is on Springer, when Springer was still trying to have class.

...Or out the Anne Nightingale years of the Old Grey Whistle Test. So many incredible bands came through those years.
