Fred Armisen as the frontman of the only pro-Thatcher punk band

In one of the funnier Saturday Night Live skits of late, longtime SNL staple Fred Armisen plays Ian Rubbish — fictional frontman of the punk band Ian Rubbish & the Bizzarros. It’s pretty clear from the History Of Punk skit that Armisen is a huge fan of the music, as his portrayal of a late 70s English punker could really not be any more spot on (similar props to Bill Hader who plays Bizzarro drummer Derek Gash). The clip itself is worth watching, but if you like the actual music you can now get The Best of Ian Rubbish E.P. — including the hits “Hey Policeman”, “Sweet Iron Lady” and more — for free download HERE.
