‘God Save The Queen’ by SEX PISTOLS

Forty years ago today – 27 May 1977 – the SEX PISTOLS released controversial single
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN. A timeless punk banger that shocked the conservative United Kingdom. I just loved their rage, their controversial attitude, their middle finger for the capitalistic establishment and Johnny Rotten‘s new generation charisma. These outcasts
were just sensational, highly inspiring and made the best punk rock album ever!…

So what’s the status today, 40 years later? Well, after several reunion tours the legendary
four-piece filled their pockets with tons of money. Face & voice John ‘Rotten’ Lydon recently became an American citizen (obviously inspired by Obama he claimed) after living for many years now in a huge mansion in Los Angeles and he stated on several talk-shows (selling another book, again) a couple of months ago that idiot Trump is a ‘possible friend and in
a way a political Sex Pistol
‘ and Brexit (read: old Brittania going back to intolerance, racism and egoism) is a great thing for the UK as that is what the working class wanted and ‘ I’m one of them and I’m with them’‘ waffled the nowadays irrelevant punk has-been. And, oh yeah, the Queen is still in charge. Wow, what a revolution! We’re back at point zero. Over the years punk became a million dollars business and their early figureheads, like the Pistols, became silly comedians and greedy chameleons. Sad, really sad…

    A great, but ironically sad, commentary JL.
