Troublemaker seems to be a slight middle finger to those attitudes from the punk scene elite...
“Troublemaker and a song like Rusty James are kind of like a ‘f**k you’ to the old punk scene and the old guard a little bit. There are so many people who get to our age and they become bitter, and maybe their life isn’t going the way that they want it to. That’s what those songs are about. There’s a fine line between being an angry young man and being a bitter old fart, you know?
“When you step over that line... I don’t know. I mean, a guy like John Lydon is just caustic and pissed off at the whole world, and doesn’t even really have a true reason for being angry at anything any more. He represented something so strongly – with this new poetry and this new way of thinking, or a new approach to music or things that f**kin’ piss you off about society. Then, to see him turn into this guy who’s not even inspiring any more, I don’t want to end up like that: where you start turning into the antithesis of why you started getting into it to begin with.”
