It was a genuine statement. I don't like swimming in other peoples piss and shit. This is my world, for fuck's sake. I don't enjoy industrial wastelands. There was actually a problem with the record company at the time, in that they didn't press enough copies of the single, and it went straight in the charts and then it couldn't sell any more because they didn't press any.
- John Lydon, Volume 3 CD/Book 1992

Lydon loved 'Don't Ask Me'. Allan Dias wrote the music, but when we put the guitars on it, John thought it sounded like a Pistols song or something...
- John McGeoch, Sounds 1990
