Answer Song

Answer songs go back at least to early jazz and probably long before that. They’ve always been big in rap but disappeared from Rocknroll when Rocknroll became Rock. But Johnny Thunders got pissed when he heard the Sex Pistols’ “New York.” Johnny explains his reasons. Johnny rounded up Pistols Jones/Cook on guitar/drums, with Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy on bass. A young Steve Lillywhite produced. Certainly one of and maybe the best “fuck you” song ever.
