Inspired by The Jam

Although The Jam were often grouped with British punk, they were always a band apart. The trio's modish sense of style and Paul Weller's lyrics, as nostalgic as they were snotty, took as much from The Kinks and The Who as they did from the Sex Pistols. Their legacy has been a lasting one; The Jam are a favorite citation of Britpop acts like Oasis and Blur, as well as indie artists like Ted Leo.
