I bought this when this came out in 1977 at an import shop and it was the most liberating album I'd heard in my then 16 years of existence. Quite simply the snottiest, most revolutionary and most importanly ROCKING album at a time when rock wasn't played on the radio at all. Those were the days of boring twaddle like Boston, Foreigner and the musical excrement known as disco. The Pistols brought danger back into the rock and roll equation, and inspired countless thousands of kids to pick up some instruments and play their own music. Along with the Ramones and the Clash, the Sex Pistols are one of the most influential and historically important bands of the seventies. Rock was reborn: punk, new wave, metal, post punk, pop music all either sprang from or were renewed by the big bang that was the Sex Pistols and punk rock. As for the tremendously ignorant reviewer who said something to the effect that the British didn't care about slagging the queen because she's a figurehead. Oh my, God Save The Queen was HUGELY revolutionary and offensive to the British. The Pistols were banned from the BBC and from playing live in England precisely because of the love the British have for the monarchy and tradition. Slagging the Queen is tantamount to an American covering the flag in sh*t and lighting it on fire and then dousing the flames with urine. Yes the Pistols were manufactured by ambitious and then unknown fashion designer Malcolm McLaren, well he agreed to manage them and most importantly found Johnny Rotton. No they weren't the first punk band nor were they the first punk band I'd ever heard. I heard the Ramones first album and the Dammed's first album before the Sex Pistols. But those bands, while very good, didn't have the visceral punch, and f*ck you and everything you stand for attitude.Read more ›

I've never seen so much blatantly false information about a subject in one place before. Some of these people need to find out what the hell they are talking about before they submit reviews. I'm guessing that many of these 1-star ratings are coming from children weened on the Green Day poseurs.
Just to set the record straight, aside from some dross that was released after their demise, Bollocks is the ONLY Pistols album. To say that it is their best album or their worst album is simply a display of ignorance. Cripes, I'm seeing people write reviews of this landmark record who don't even get the names of the band members correct. Leave the critiques to folks who have more than a passing knowledge of the band and the album and the genre, for that matter.
As for all these comparisons, The Clash were very nice indeed, but they never packed the snarling power of 'Anarchy in the UK', nor did they ever produce a signature song like 'God Save the Queen', one of the great hard-rock anthems to ever come down the pike, blowing the doors off of anything by these neo-punk revivalists. And for all this talk of filler, I'll take one 'New York' for 5 songs on London Calling.
If it wasn't for albums like Bullocks breaking the prog-rock and corporate-rock mallaise of the late '70s, we'd all STILL be listening to turgid immitators of Floyd and Zeppelin.

The people who nit pick about who is "punk", who is more musically adept are missing the point with The Pistol's.

I love all kinds of music, play guitar myself and was never into the punk scene and what went with it.

However, I'll never forget the first time I heard this album and the impact it had on me. It was devastating.

I may have Mozart or Sarah Brightman or The Stones or Coldplay in the CD changer tonight. Maybe Buddy Guy or some Verdi.

Then every so often I will stick in my well worn copy of NMTBITSP and from the moment I hear those marching boots and Steve Jones thunderous Les Paul crashing out the opening chords to Anarchy in the UK ...........I am suddenly 19 years old again with "no feelings..for any body else....except for myself...my beautiful self". Utterly unique and one of rock & roll's brilliant defining moments.

God save the Queen.

first, for those of you who have no understanding of punk, know that the pistols and other early punk bands were about live performance, not recordings. having said that, given that their career as a band was short-lived, try this album to grok what they were about.

the truth is these songs sound almost innocent compared to the headache rock, death & speedmetal, goth and other punk spinoffs that have sprouted since. musically the songs are simple and great rock n roll. lydon was an acidic, brilliant lyricist, as good as punk ever had, and his raw on-edge "singing" is as good as any punk vocalist ever.

Not much needs to be said about NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS, but the second disc is a necessary purchase even if you bought the SEX PISTOLS BOX, which is full of demos (but not all of them). There was not enough time to fit everything on that, so some tracks were cut from it. This 2CD set was issued first. The following track list was found after researching on the web. This info is not on the set (actually almost no info is on the set).

1. Seventeen *
2. Satellite *
3. No Feelings *
4. I Wanna Be Me *
5. Submission
Dave Goodman Session, Riverside / Denmark St, July 1976

6. Anarchy in the UK
Dave Goodman Session, Wessex Studios, October `76

7. GSTQ
8. Problems *
9. Pretty Vacant *
10. Liar *
11. EMI *
12. New York
Dave Goodman Session, Gooseberry Studios, January 1977

13. Problems
14. No Feelings
15. Pretty Vacant

19. Satellite
20. Seventeen
Chris Thomas NMTB session, Wessex, Summer 1977

21. Anarchy in the UK
Dave Goodman Session, Riverside / Denmark St, July 1976

*Not on SEX PISTOLS BOX

One thing nice about this edition is that it has the original import color combo, yellow and pink, instead of the later issue released in the US, green and pink. The song list of the CD corresponds to the song titles of the original SPUNK bootleg LP.
