A band whom many belive created or started punk, though they did not, they did help define the genre. By the way, Iggy pop and the stooges didn't start punk, that would be the Mc5.

A great punk band. Had a lot of good songs, but had ill tempered members(sorry Jonny and Sid). And they had one hell of a good guitarist.
nothing else really to say

Was one of the most influential british punk rock bands fom the 70s. The original line up consisted of the lead singer Johnny Rotten (real name John Lydon) guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook and bassist Glen Mattlock. Glen was later replaced with Sid Vicious (real name Simon John Ritchie.) Some of their songs include God Save the Queen, Seventeen, Bodies, EMI, Holiday in the Sun, and probably their best known Anarchy in the U.K.. In 1978 Sid was accused of murdering his american girlfriend Nancy Spungeon. A few months later while awaiting trial in 1979 Sid passed away of a heroine overdose and Nancy's murder was never solved. This probably marked the end of their historical rein on the punk scene in the 70s.

an awesome punk band from the 70's, that did not invent punk, nor define it, (the clash and ramones did that) but made it hard for many bands to follow up to their degree of punk royalty.
the sex pistols rocked and are rocking generations to come, but the clash was better...

A corporate puppet manufactured band who did not even know what anarchy meant and just sung about it because they were told to. Did not start up punk contrary to popular belief. Did however have a big influence on the british music scene which had some excellent bands form. Johnny rotten is fuuny as fuck and although was a member of the corporate machine which he constantly sung against earns my respect because he is funny.

A manufactured punk-rock group from the '70s. Even though they were Malcom McLaren's puppets, even though they couldn't play their instruments, even though Sid probably DID kill Nancy, I still love them.
And y'know, they were just as manufactured as Avril Lavigne is. "God Save The Queen" is as catchy as "Sk8er Boi", though "God Save the Queen" pissed off a lot more people.
The Sex Pistols are a good group, but the Ramones and the Clash are real punk.
