In 1976 New Rose was released by The Damned and in so doing became the first punk single to be released in the UK. 40 years later, Vic Galloway examines the importance of that moment in musical history; the song, it's production and the time that The Damned emerged from. Fresh from their anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall Vic asks if The Damned are now firmly part of the establishment.

With contributions from Rat Scabies, Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible and Brian James.
