One of the most overrated bands in history.

The band was extremely shitty. But they had a great producer so they sounded good on their album. They sucked extremely hard live though. Funny how a great producer can make a shitty band sound good.

Wrote offensive lyrics about pretty much anything. They got popular because of that. They also put the "anarchy" lable on punk music. You know, that sign Avril Lavigne uses too all the time, hahaha.

All in all, a band that got famous because they pretty much hated everything and everyone. Their bass player sliced up his girlfriend and commited suicide after that. Or did he die from an heroin OD? Either way it wasn't pretty.
Respect to the producer of the Sex Pistols. He made them acually sound good on their album!

Definatly the greatest punk band ever, they were the first people to swear on TV and thats how they became famous because their music... well... nobody liked it at the time. Now though, they are renowned as great punk artists. Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and of course their "fantastic" manager Malcom McLaren, we salute you.
I wanna be an anarchist too! That sucks about Spungeon though.

A rad 70's punk band. They logged me off of Britney Spears and N*SYNC and all that worthless dribble when I was 12.
Hip-hop girl: Yo! Watcha listenin' to ho?
Punk girl: Sex Pistols.
Hip-hop girl: Oh, they's must be news.
Punk girl: They're from the 70's, dumbass.
Hip-hop girl: You be listenin' to s*** from da 70's? You gay.
Punk girl: Thanks, I'm very happy.

An amazing 70s punk band thats members included John Lydon aka Johnny Rotten, the singer - an artistic, yet brilliant, anarchist who was all about having his own style; Steve Jones, the guitarist - an ex-burglar who only cared about getting laid; Paul Cook, the drummer - a timid longtime friend of Steve Jones; and Glenn Matlock, the bassist - a mama's boy Beatles fan. Matlock was eventually replaced with Rotten's old friend and the Sex Pistols' biggest fan John Simon Ritchie also known as Sid Vicious. Vicious's bass skills were limited, because he taught himself one night while on speed, playing with a Ramones album. After meeting Nancy Spungeon, Vicious became a herion addict, and after Nancy's murder, Vicious was to blame, although most believe Vicious was innocent. Vicious died of an overdose just several months after Nancy's murder.

R. I. P. Sid Vicious
(May 10, 1956 - February 2, 1979)

A great 70's punk band with few songs, but good ones at that, and an attitude to go along with it. They, however did not invent punk rock, but their style was more raw than others.
