I didn't really like the Sex Pistols until they were 10 years gone, heh.
What's ironic is that L.A. was known in the 80's for the Sunset Strip scene yet in LA, those bands weren't all that popular here. The only radio station in town that played that music was KNAC, and they went out of business in early 1995, even after adding "Alternative" music in 1992.
KROQ, however, lives on.
