i remember waaay back when the cars were actually pretty cool. then, in the latre 70's, rolling stone put them on the cover as "the best new band of the year". from that point on, they became a joke. straight to hell.
using this poster and wht it represents as my information source (no matter what YOU think 'punk' is) i'd have to say that punk has definitely run it's course completely and now it's a pathetic parody of itself being solf as a mass commodity to an ignorant public maistream demographic.
