Roger Daltrey, a lead singer of the famous British rock band The Who, joined his colleagues who opposed the woke culture and associated trends that affect Western society today.
In an interview with Apple Music, Daltrey said that the generation of the woke culture followers might end up creating ‘a miserable world,’ both for themselves and people around them.
The famous singer stressed that it became much harder to spread the truth nowadays.
He explained that any person with some level of life experience is aware that the path led by woke culture leaders is heading nowhere.
The singer emphasized that, unlike today, the period in which he lived presents a ‘golden era.’
Daltrey compared the lives of new generations with the lives of people his age, who, after surviving the war, had a chance to see how the communist societies operate in reality.
The singer pointed out that those societies were far from ‘wonderful,’ unlike what new leftists might think.
Apple Music interview was not the first occasion in which Daltrey expressed his criticism of the leftist policies.
He made headlines several years ago when he publicly supported Brexit and distanced himself from the U.K.’s Labour Party because of Jeremy Corbyn’s leftism.
Other wolves in the pack
Other prominent musical stars from the ‘golden era’ expressed similar concerns about the rising leftist political tendencies.
Sex Pistols lead singer John Lydon, better known under his stage name Johnny Rotten, told U.K.’s The Times that he is worried about the cancel culture’s impact on individual freedoms.
Lydon described the woke movement supporters as selfish people who pretend to be deprived of rights and perceive themselves as unique.
Sex Pistols lead singer said that he could not believe that so much media attention is being given to the people in question.
He identified the woke activists as hysterical youngsters who are wronging others by being extremely judgmental of their actions.
Glenn Danzig, a founder of the famous American punk rock band Misfits, pointed out that there would be no revival of punk culture as long as the cancel culture takes hold.
He said that, in their opposition to the entire social system and lack of political correctness, the punk movement would have quickly been labeled and ‘canceled.’
Danzig added that it is good it happened at all.
