I really like The Exploited as they make real hard Punk music and don't compromise on it, there's a tremendous energy in their music i.e. Troops Of Tomorrow and Beat The Bastards both demonstrate this powerful sound they make. I think that the track UK 82 is probably the best Punk track ever written, it's amazing and blows my head off with every listen.
Wattie Buchan is one of the most honest and upfront blokes in the music industry and I believe he speaks his mind with no fear of other opinions, his comment about Tony Blair and the Iraq debacle was the best I've ever heard -

"Buchan has said that Blair "is a total fucking, lying fanny wank."

- I'd like to see anyone top that comment!
I sincerely hope he gets well soon and makes a full recovery to good health!

Leaving behid rumors and polemics, musically we should admit what they meant, and how redefined the sound of the second punk generation, transforming their style into something harder, faster and aggressive, labelled a little later as UK 82.
Besides that, is also undeniable their influence in the progression of punk/hardcore and thrash metal music. During a part of the eighties, all the punk topics (take this as you want) were a Exploited synonymus.
