If this is true; Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Ramones were Financed by the USSR, then it was their best move ever. According to the article:
The USSR government at the time spent “hundreds of millions of rubles” on this covert operation destined to create utter chaos… We even infiltrated mainstream radios to promote their music and reach millions of people everyday…
As far as I am concerned; The Sex Pistols, meh. However, The Clash was pretty good and when I was living in California in the mid 1980’s, The Ramones were hugely popular with the surfer crowd and pretty much everyone else.
So, without further adieu and with special thanks to Комите́т госуда́рственной безопа́сности (КГБ):
There you have it; an English punk rock band, financed by a Soviet security apparatus signing (sort of) about an American car. Next thing you’ll tell me is that Billy Joel is a CIA front.
