    Well that’s the cart before the horse. I myself would start my kid off with stooges and the MC5 then Scream in to the future with radio Birdman, maybe half a record of the Saints, head right into the clash then go straight to X and then go back to the second and third tier bands.

    Spend a little time with them and then go back forward to the minute men and Hüsker du.

    (Voice texted it from My pull-start iPhone so capilization is random and Often.)

    I used to listen to these guys in the late 70s. ‘Hersham Boys’ was rabble rousing stuff! The bass player went on to join The Lords of the New Church, one of my favourite bands from early 80s.

    This must be important because there's three threads on it.

    Omg, I couldn't make it past 20 seconds of that. Painful to listen to. So I guess the answer to "What would you do if I sang out of tune?" would be... stop the video.

    There are actually two Sham 69's now, caused by the original Jimmy Pursey version splitting up years ago.
    Guitarist Dave Parsons then formed a new Sham 69 with Tim V on vocals.
    Dave Parsons then 'reformed' Sham 69 with Jimmy Pursey.
    Leaving the Tim V version with 2 members who had been in both bands.
    They both still tour.

    It's not that uncommon anymore. I don't know about punk, but there are some 60s and 70s bands that are split into two current bands. Also the Wailers (Bob Marley's band).

    I remember their hits at the time, quite rough and ready if you hear them now. They were supposed to have been more of a skinhead band than punks with infamously violent gigs. Fairly sure my kids don’t know them.

    Jimmy Pursey had a brief lived sideline working with French band Trust writing the English language version of their lyrics for them.

    I didn't make it to 20 seconds. Someone just stole 16 seconds of my life.

    My kids were into Rammstein, Opeth, etc But they're grown up now.
    I don't mind a bit of Rammy myself.

    Yes.
    My son enjoyed Hurry up England as part of the Euro movement. So I played him Hurry Up Harry.

    They did have a big skinhead following and Jimmy Pursey was really idolized by them as I recall, lauded as an authentic voice of the Council estates of England.
