top song. Too much disrespect. when i was 13, 14 in 77' 78' Sham were top band in the playground (before 2-tone).
There were no Rejects, 4-Skins , never heard of Menace, Sparrer etc. Jimmy pursey was always a bit of a twat but without Sham there would be no Oi! (sub)genre. Anyone quoting julie burchill is an idiot who wasn't there - Sham did some great stuff. too pissed to sat it better but get a clue ffs.
Punk- a person who resists any authority, control, or tradition. to avoid tradition and conformity however is impossible, merely stating that one is punk is falling under a stereotype and socialization itself plays at ones obedience levels but it is boisterous to conform to punk what better field to have fun.
