Got to be one of the best, funniest lyrics

Well you tried it just for once
Found it alright for kicks
But now you found out
That it's a habit that sticks

Remember absolutely howling at that in my youth. 4 lines in and you love it.

Ah man, terribly sad news, one of the true greats.

Think I'll go for a stroll in the trees.

“Times Up” for Pete and I would imagine also for one of the greatest punk bands. The music will live on however.

Pete Shelley has been (and will always be) one of the greatest contributors to the soundtrack of my life.

I’m gonna miss him so much.

I don't know anyone who doesn't like the buzzcocks, that's some going for a punk band.

It's such sad news.
