Punk Milestones of 1977

1977. What a year for music!
The seeds sown by the Ramones in 1976 bloomed in 1977 to create an impact that affects rock music to this day.
After much deliberation, I came up with these three influential singles:
Sheena Is A Punk Rocker – Ramones
Pretty Vacant – Sex Pistols
Complete Control – The Clash
My reasoning can be heard on a Twirl radio interview. Have fun with these classics!
Twirl is a weekly two hour radio program which features the finest music from the rock era. It airs live on Saturdays, 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. Pacific, on Sacramento’s community radio station, KUBU 96.5 FM, streaming live at www.twirlradio.com, and podcasting at www.soundwavestv.com. Mike Lidskin has been hosting and programming the show since January, 1998.
The typical Twirl Radio playlist includes an eccentric mix of indie rock ‘n’ roll, forgotten classics, and lesser-known songs by well-known artists. Power pop, Americana, and alternative are well represented.
