Sid and Nancy were punk rock’s Romeo and Juliet. Star-crossed lovers aside, the infamous couple crashed and burned all across the world in the late 1970s. Nancy was the Sex Pistols’ Yoko Ono — reviled by fans and fated for disaster. Sid, well, he was tragic from the start. Skipping over the methadone clinics and vomit and blood (which account for much of their relationship), it couldn’t hurt to use them as a spring board to add a bit of punk polish to your life. — Amy Merrick

More Sid & Nancy after the jump!
Drugs, violence and tragedy — not high on the quality-of-life scale. It’s Sid and Nancy’s snippets of London and New York at peak punk velocity that make up for the sad mess, and they’re what we’ll focus on instead. The general game plan for us going forward? Put studs on everything.
