 The recent announcement of the Sex Pistol’s re-release of their 1977 hit ‘God Save the Queen’ has got the capital buzzing!

The Sex Pistols were formed in 1975 by Malcolm McLaren. They originally comprised of vocalist Johnny Rotten, guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook and bassist Glen Matlock. In early 1977, Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious.

God Save the Queen“,1977, attacked Britons’ social conformity and was anti-establishment : the “last and greatest outbreak of pop-based moral pandemonium” (quoted from wikipedia, Sean O’Hagan, 2004).
