It's cool to be contrary these days (and maybe it always has been). It's like music geeks who like to tell the world that the Beatles were not really that important.
One of the recurring opinions in the class I've taught about rock and history over the past three years is a steady number of students who declare the Beatles overrated or not very good. Follow-up questions normally gets them to admit that they're just sick of hearing about them. Sure, Beatles fans can go overboard in their adulation—uh, isn't that what rabid fans do with their idols?—but rejecting them on that basis is lazy kneejerk contrariness.
Endut! Hoch Hech!

Wow, this guy is a horribly pretentious asshole. I'd love to beat the living shit out of him with a brass statue of the Buddha.
I've a lovely cast iron one that you can use to do that job, you can have it anytime, ...these articles are just used to stir, playing the devils advocate for people wth strong sentiments to the individuals they are slinging mud at, I've heard of Joe Strummer and what he did and what he stood for, have not heard of this web publication, if it were actually a printed news paper / Magazine it would undoubtedly find its way into my toilet so I could wipe my big hairy arse with it, looking at the article it's credited to the Exile Team, obviously they are part of the problem and not part of a solution or cure, ....as you were x

True, just nobody arseholes trying to make a name for themselves, give them a guitar and see what they can do?.
One of my favourite Joe Strummer lyrics is, "Yankee
De tec tives always on the TV, coz Killers in America work seven days a week". .......says soooo much with so few words
. "Bikini Reds a state of mind,
I'm in a state and She don't mind"
