"Punk enabled you to say, “Fuck you.” But somehow, it couldn’t go any further. It was just a single, venomous, one-syllable, two-syllable phrase of anger which was necessary to re-ignite rock’n’roll. But sooner or later, someone was going to want to say more than “Fuck you.” Someone was going to want to say “I’m fucked."
– Tony Wilson.
