Refferring to an earlier entry regarding "Peaches" by the Stranglers...

(Put's on tin helmet and sports protector before beginning remainder of rant)

Punk music wasn' about producing William Blake - style poetry. The rougher and readier the lyrics - the better. The entire genre was about deconstructing the sad, manufactured state of popular music at the time. I'm sure many punk bands would be proud to be listed on this thread as in many ways they were the folk heroes of their age.

And don't whatever you do get me started on country and western lyrics!
