The fate of all revolutions, of course: Christies in New York is holding a massive punk memorabilia auction, with anti-establishment items expected to be bought by the rich for up to USD6000 a pop:
"We understand that tastes change, tastes mature," said Christie's pop-culture chief Simeon Lipman. "Ten years ago, punk memorabilia probably wouldn't be something we'd be auctioning here. But now, people of a certain age have a certain ability to splurge on this material."
How lucky they didn't overthrow the social order in the end, then.
