While I really liked the music of The Clash and Sex Pistols (my first exposure to punk), I just laughed at the idea they were "rebellious" in any way shape or form. The Clash were signed to CBS (their subsidiary Epic in the US), the Pistols to Virgin (Warners in the US), the idea that a huge multinational record company was a source of rebellion of any kind was ludicrous. Rebellion had been packaged and sold in rock music since at least 1965 (OMG! The Rolling Stones will rape your daughters and make your sons a hoodlum!!!!), it was as boring a marketing trope as "sensitive singer-songwriter" or "drugged-out heavy metal musician".

No.

No, you don't, grandpa.  Nothing sadder than old people continuing to try and play the music of youth.

Music styles age with the generation that produce it.  To assume that punk was always going to stay the 'music of youth' is absurd.

I think he meant, nothing sadder than old people continuing to play the music of THEIR youth. Like The Who, still claiming to "hope I die before I get old."

It's sad that the thought of other people having fun makes you sad.
