Sex Pistols

Sex Pistols

The most famous (and infamous) band of the late 70s punk scene. Their rebellious image combined with a commercial sound (partly thanks to producer Chris Thomas) created some of the most memorable moments of the 70s - both musical and otherwise. Line-up: Johnny Rotten (John Lydon, b. January 31, 1956 - vocals), Steve Jones (b. September 3, 1955 - guitar), Sid Vicious (John Ritchie aka John Beverley, b. May 10, 1957 - bass, kind of; replaced original bassist Glen Matlock) and Paul Cook (b. July 20, 1956 - drums).

Inducted into Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 2006 (Performer).

The most important rockband of the whole 20th century. Never Mind The Bollocks - the most important, and in my opinion "best" - album. The impact they made, musically, socially and culturally can not be overrated.

"Who cares about the music?" Spat Lydon, they did, he does, Malcolm... not so sure. Punk is a belief, an attitude, the sound IS important but it's the backing track for your own opinion, you make the noise, others dance to it.

To not understand the importance of the Sex Pistols as both a definitive and universally understood statement that change was here is to deny history. The change had already come in the United States where it had been brewing for years but the Sex Pistols really reached further then anyone had before. One can waste time on the "story" of the and or the mythology and come away with nothing but an entertaining romp. The Pistols are one of the bands that caused thousands of kids to pick up instruments and play, that in its self is an undeniable realty. The fact that their music remains a fresh reminder of not just a moment but an overall feeling is testament.

Hmm, Sex Pistols are a funny one for me. I do like them a lot, and I think that Nevermind... is a very good album with some excellent songs (adding to that John Lydon/Johnny Rotten has one of my favorite voices in rock music), but for me they'll always be second best to The Clash. I fully appreciate their importance in music history/pop culture at large, and their legendary status but I can't help but feel that The Clash were light years ahead of them if you were to concentrate only on music. Maybe my opinions would be different if I had have lived through the times, but as I was born years after the whole punk scene the controversy the Sex Pistols generated means nothing to me, I can only base my opinions on their music they created. For me they cared more about shock value than the actual music, although that was probably the entire point to begin with. For me the music should always be an artist's priority however. Not to mention Sex Pistols had Sid Vicious and I can't think of anyone more undeserving of being mythologized than he is. Don't get me wrong, they were a good band, but I can't say I view them as one of the all time greats.

Well, it's all in history books now - more for their image and massive media exposure, (The) Sex Pistols delivered one sole album which is a collection of previously cut singles plus an endless list of 'Bollocks' replicas afterwards. Without them very little or nothing would be achieved or considered musical democracy and as such they should be greeted for centuries to come as music progresses into new forms and deforms.

The paradox has it, Punk is a hopelessly dated thing regarding three-chord musical philosophy, but its beliefs are what counts - nevermind the fashion tricks McLaren in particular managed to shape up, or countless imitators nowadays.
