The band are best known for their hit, Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've).

Music critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine said Buzzcocks were one of the most influential bands to emerge in the initial wave of punk rock, with echoes of their music in everyone from Hüsker Dü to Nirvana.

It was at college that Shelley met Davoto, and the pair traveled to London together to see the Sex Pistols perform; it was less than a year later that they opened for the band in Manchester.

Stiff Little Fingers singer Jake Burns wrote: "Really saddened to hear about the passing of Pete Shelley. Shelley's alternately amusing and anguished lyrics about adolescence and love were some of the best and smartest of his era".

The most recent formation of the band consisted as Pete Shelley on vocals and guitar, Steve Diggle, on vocals and guitar, Chris Remmington on bass and Danny Farrant on drums.
