The award for best sketch on this week’s Saturday Night Live definitely goes to Fred Armisen for throwing together a punk rock spoof – “The History of Punk.” It’s Sex Pistols meets Spinal Tap, touching upon the tumultuous history of England’s finest band, Ian Rubbish and the Bizarros.
Armisen portrays Ian Rubbish, an obvious homage to Johnny Rotten, who took the controversial stance of endorsing the late Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. This political stance put him in direct conflict with his band mates and the overall punk movement. Even Pistols guitarist Steve Jones was unearthed for the digital short. So great.
