Why would the Skunks be nominated as this year's punk band in The Austin Chronicle
Music Poll Hall of Fame
[March 14]? Dunno. Do they still sell albums? Do they fill venues wherever they play? Do they have a following that ranges from 15 years of age to 65 years of age and older? (Chris W. and my grandmammie.) Are they known all over the world? Are they still in active bands, and have they remained musicians through the years? (Except Jon Dee.) Were they a leading force in their genre of rock & roll that spawned endless acts to follow? The answer is no
. How long can a few old farts hold a grudge? I guess forever!
