The Buzzcocks were an early and influential punk rock band that formed in Manchester, England in 1975.[3] They were inspired by the energy of the Sex Pistols, but instead of applying that energy to angry political lyrics they wrote pop songs with anguished and funny lyrics.[2] They are considered to be major influences on punk rock, power pop, pop punk and indie rock.[1] Their most famous song, Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've)?, reached number 12 in the United Kingdom in 1978.
