7-Inch History – The Anti-Christ And The SEX PISTOLS This Day In 1976

Great 7″ singles from the past

26 November 2022

The SEX PISTOLS released their controversial debut single ‘ANARCHY IN THE U.K.‘,
one of the fiercest punk anthems ever, on 26 November 1976, 46 years ago today.

It was originally issued in a plain black sleeve and peaked at #38 on the UK Singles
Chart although it was either ignored or negatively received by the music press.

Their label EMI dropped the band a few months later, in January 1977.

Their manager at the time, the late Malcolm McLaren said the song was
“a call to arms to the kids who believe that rock and roll was taken away from
them. It’s a statement of self rule, of ultimate independence.”

Here’s the American has been-antichrist and Trump voter Johnny Bloody Rotten.

Oh I am an anti-Christ
And I am an anarchist
Don’t know what I want
But I know how to get it
I want to destroy your passion boy
‘Cause I, I want to be, anarchy
In this fuckin’ city
