The singer says that he wasn't a fan of of the legendary punk pioneers

In a new interview with the New York Times, Pop says that he never believed some of the British punk acts that emerged in the late 70s.

Iggy tells the New York Times: "I reacted to it better than I had to the hippie thing. As it developed, I couldn’t stand the ‘sincere’ punks. I never believed them – I still don’t.

"Like the Clash were going to make the world politically correct for everybody’s benefit, but only if you kept buying Clash records. I never really went for the righteousness; I want more for the profligate, sneering groups.”
