I would dispute almost that entire list... except for the Sex Pistols.

But to me, the sad thing about this tour is not that their music isn't that good and never really was; it's that these guys were supposed to be the quintessential fuck-you, anti-authoritarian, anti-selfish-old-cunts-just-out-to-make-a-buck band... and the very fact of doing this high-profile, high-priced nostalgia tour proves they have become the very thing they were meant to oppose.
