Once upon a time, back in the days when Johnny was truly rotten, and Sid was very vicious indeed, there was this punk band called Sham 69 that found it hard to live each day outside the law, and had to try hard to not do what they did before. But they were so close to they city they didn't have much choice.
Ah, Hersham. You would think from the lyrics of "Hersham Boys" that Jimmy Pursey and the rest of Sham 69 were growing up in some blighted neighborhood, but Hersham, in Surrey near where the M25 and M3 intersect, feels more like a location for a "Midsomers Murder" episode than like the gritty inner city.
So when Sham 69 sang about council estates or tower blocks, and alluded that wherever they lived they got the knocks, they surely weren't referring to Hersham, did they? However, they did go on to note that the people around there were so nice, so perhaps they were singing about Hersham after all, in a stylized way.
Ah, artistic license. It's what makes suburban kids sound like Cockney cowboys.
