I hardly think the same applies to the Sex Pistols or The Clash.
The point I was making was that both bands were making pop records and their main exposure was from pop magazines & tv shows.When I first started buying rock magazines in the late 80s I didn't see anything of either The Smiths or The Cure in them anywhere.
They're maybe not considered your typical pop act today but back then when your typical pop bands were people like Echo & The Bunnymen , The Icicle Works , Aztec Camera & people like that the pop tag is the one that fits the best.
