"Sex Pistols snub US Hall of Fame
Punk band the Sex Pistols have refused to attend their own induction into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
In a handwritten note posted on their website, they called the institution "urine in wine".
"We're not your monkeys, we're not coming. You're not paying attention," continued the statement.
The band, named as inductees alongside Blondie, Herb Alpert and Black Sabbath, were due to take part in an induction ceremony in New York on 13 March."
