SEX PISTOLS – 40 Years Ago And Highly Relevant Again Today…


‘Anarchy In The U.K.’ by SEX PISTOLS


Forty years ago today – 26 November 1978 – four teenage brats from the chaotic streets of London released this explosive hell of a soundtrack for a vexed country in deep economic and social trouble. The United Kingdom was a mess back then and sharp observer Johnny translated it brilliantly in the SEX PISTOLS‘ first glorious outburst. It didn’t changed the world nor Brittania yet at that very moment, also because record label EMI dropped the band soon after, but those punks would come back with a vengeance when Rotten wrote that ingeniously sarcastic love/hate song for that ‘she ain’t no human being’ creature who’s still in charge TODAY… 40 bloody years later! An ultra conservative and narcissistic old Queen, not in touch with reality anymore for ages, surrounded by extreme right-wing clowns who convinced a small majority of blind and nationalistic British people to go
back in time, away from Europe, back to the miserable days of the late seventies. Yes, indeed, the island will be a mess again. The knockout power of this terrific Pistols blast
didn’t age one fucking bit. A prophecy fulfilled… again! ANARCHY IN THE U.K.… again!

Right now ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
I am an anti-Christ
I am an anarchist
Don’t know what I want
But I know how to get it
I want to destroy the passerby

‘Cause I want to be anarchy
No dogs body

Anarchy for the U.K.
It’s coming sometime and maybe
I give a wrong time, stop a traffic line
Your future dream has sure been seen through

‘Cause I want to be anarchy
In the city

How many ways to get what you want
I use the best, I use the rest
I use the enemy
I use anarchy

‘Cause I want to be anarchy
