Just to be a pedantic music geek knowitall for a moment…I think my biggest grievance with this is the fundamental lack of comprehension of what PUNK is/was. If its inherently about the music (which, of course, not everyone agrees on), then the Pretenders’ third album Learning to Crawl (which is emblazoned on the young lady's chest above) is a laughable choice. I mean, sure, Chrissie Hynde was a major face on the scene (see photo below), but even the first Pretenders LP is barely “punk” by any credible standard. “Brass in Pocket”? That might as well have been played by Boz Scaggs. But Learning to Crawl-era Pretenders? It's a fine album, yes, but it's about as punk as Hall & Oates.
Said EV: "According to this Bloomingdale's ad in the Post today, we're in for a Punk Summer. Prepare now! His Ramones T-shirt is $48, her Pretenders T-shirt is $64."
THESE ARE T-SHIRTS, PEOPLE!!!
Chrissie in her punk days...
