"Punk music for me was positive, proof positive, that we could change our lives by music..."

John Lydon and Marky Ramone fell out in spectacular style at a panel talk earlier in the week.

The two were invited to talk at a panel before the launch of Punk, a new four part documentary series executive produced by Iggy Pop.

John Lydon and Marky Ramone lined up alongside Henry Rollins, Guns 'N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, L7’s Donita Sparks, and Punk producer John Varvatos.

Lydon clearly decided that proceedings just weren't lively enough, and promptly weighed in on Henry Rollins by telling him he found Black Flag "boring".

The Sex Pistols frontman then turned towards Marky Ramone, saying he's "not even an original Ramone".

Labelling - or should that be libelling? - Marky Ramone as a "heavy metal fucking reject" John Lydon then said:

"Punk music for me was positive, proof positive, that we could change our lives by music, meaning what we said, attack the political systems. This daft c*nt is into fucking drugs."
