Russia financed punk - honest!
Alexandrov Varennikov Voloshin, a retired KGB agent, has (allegedly!) admitted on national TV in Russia that the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) was behind the creation of the 1970s punk scene and financed major punk bands such as the Sex Pistols, the Clash and the Ramones. Well that's according to that ever reliable source of news, the apparently Tel Aviv based World News Daily Report, "dedicated to covering biblical archeology news and other mysteries". It seems that the USSR government spent “hundreds of millions of roubles” on this covert operation destined to “create utter chaos” and “pervert the Western youth to nihilist, anti-establishment and anti-American ideologies”. Famous punk songs of the legendary punk band the Sex Pistols were even scripted by a team of psychologists and war propagandists from the USSR. “I Am An Anarchist”, “God Save The Queen” and other anti-establishment lyrics were intended to unleash a wave of cynicism towards authorities, promote the use of heavy drugs and entice the youth with revolutionary, counter establishment ideas.
