    Not very true at all.

    Has a very slight element of truth to it in the sense that there is too much bureaucracy and too many rules and regulations nowadays, but a lot of the '2009' stuff is nonsense.

    The 1977 stuff is pretty accurate, better music then too, the Sex Pistols had just come out.
    The rest is just a pee take of todays society.
