    The Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd. frontman Johnny Rotten --born John Lydon-- will be honored with the Icon Award at the BMI London Awards later this year. Lydon will be honored on October 15 for his "unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers." That about sums his contributions up!

    In a statement, BMI President/CEO Del Bryant said, "John Lydon is a true icon whose influence on music, fashion and art has been felt around the world. We are very pleased to recognize his impact on popular culture and his outstanding musical contributions with the BMI Icon Award."

    Congrats Johnny Rotten! Winning a big industry award isn't exactly punk rock, but you are a legend and you deserved it.

    Who is your favorite punk rock band?
