Old Punks To Be Recycled Into Sam Smith Fans

The controversial “Junk A Punk” scheme, aimed at boosting UK record sales will be trialled by councils across the country.

The pilot scheme will encourage the local community to bring in middle-aged punks and skinheads, and receive a refurbished middle-of-the road Sam Smith or Coldplay fan in return.

“This is an exciting new initiative, designed to boost ticket sales in larger venues, and to encourage the downloading of more mainstream music,” said Simon Cowell, enjoying a glass of blood at his solid gold mansion in L.A.

If you bring your old punk in, we’ll knock all of that Johnny Rotten nonsense out of them, give them a sensible new haircut and a pair of trousers or boot cut jeans from Next. We’ve got some very nice FCUK T-shirts with amusing slogans on, and we’ll use electric shock therapy to reprogram their music tastes to something more current. Then we’ll rehome them with a starter pack sponsored by U2, containing all of the music they’ve been missing out on,”

A spokesperson for Sony, who are backing the scheme and providing free IPods loaded with Mumford & Sons albums said:

It’s the kindest way really. You can’t just let people that still embrace a spirit of rebellion and listen to sweary music about it that we don’t own just wander the streets. We must exterminate. EXTERMINAAAAATE!”

Venues and small record labels are worried that the scheme could entirely undermine them.

“We’re aware of the issues, and plan to incorporate all of the record labels & venues affected into larger conglomerates,” said SONY.

“You can fuck right off,” said an elderly female punk earmarked for recycling. “I’m not normally a violent person. But touch my vinyls and I’ll Doc Marten your underpants out the back of your throat,”
