Pretty Vacant - Sex Pistols - Never Mind The Bollocks Heres The Sex Pistols (Cassette, Album)

The record's lyrics, as well as the cover, were controversial at the time, and both the BBC and the Independent Broadcasting Authority refused to play the song. The original title for the song was " No Future ", with the lyrics themselves being a general expression of the band's view of the monarchy or any individual or establishment commanding general obligation. The song reached No. This led to accusations by some that the charts had been "fixed" to prevent the song from reaching No.

The single was released on 27 May , and was regarded by many of the general public as an assault on Queen Elizabeth II and the monarchy. The song's title is taken directly from the national anthem of the United Kingdom of the same name. At the time, it was highly controversial for its equation of the queen with a " fascist regime" and for the lyric "there is no future in England's dreaming".

According to Glen Matlock , who had co-written the song—although he was no longer a member of the band by the time it was released—the bass was inspired by The Move 's " Fire Brigade ". Although many believe it was created because of the Silver Jubilee , the band have denied it, with Paul Cook saying that "it wasn't written specifically for the Queen's Jubilee.

We weren't aware of it at the time. It wasn't a contrived effort to go out and shock everyone. You write a song like that because you love them, and you're fed up with them being mistreated. On 7 June — the Jubilee holiday itself — the band attempted to play the song from a boat named the Queen Elizabeth on the River Thames , near the Palace of Westminster.

After a scuffle involving attendee Jah Wobble and a cameraman, 11 people, including Malcolm McLaren , the man who organised the concert, and several other members of the band's entourage, were arrested when the boat docked. The song peaked at No. Various sources state that it was indeed the highest-selling single of the week, [9] [10] despite a ban by the BBC and some major retailers. The phrase "no future", the song's closing refrain, became emblematic of the punk rock movement.

The lyric provided the title of Jon Savage 's history of the Sex Pistols and punk rock titled England's Dreaming. A later version was released on the Pistols' debut album. However, it only made number In , the song was ranked among the top 10 most controversial songs of all time in a poll conducted by PRS for Music.

In , the song was re-released to coincide with the Queen's Golden Jubilee , whereupon the single charted in the top In , it was announced that the single would be re-released on 28 May , coinciding with the 35th anniversary of the original release and the Diamond Jubilee of Elizabeth II.

This campaign totally undermines what The Sex Pistols stood for. It is certainly not my personal plan or aim.

That said, no one should be frightened away from this album. And, contrary to popular opinion, the Pistols do have a sense of humor. If Graham Parker can come away from a Sex Pistols concert saying it was just like seeing the Stones in their glorious early days, just how many contradictions are we talking about?

Anyone who cares enough to hate this much is probably not a nihilist, but — irony of ironies — a moralist and a romantic as well.

The album’s working title was ‘God Save The Sex Pistols’ but changed to the far superior ‘Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols’. A catchphrase coined through Steve Jones. On the album’s release, more controversy surrounded the band when police .
