Sex Pistols

A definitive celebration packed with previously unseen material of the original punk band—the group that defined a movement, energized a generation, and brought punk music and the safety-pin aesthetic to the mainstream.

The  Sex  Pistols  have  defined  the  look,  sound,  and feel  of  the  punk  movement  since  they  formed  in London in 1975. Together for less than three years— a  short  run  that  included  just  four  singles  and  one studio  album  before  they  broke  up  in  1978—their impact on the musical and cultural landscape of the last forty years is nothing short of remarkable.

The  Sex  Pistols—Johnny  Rotten,  Steve  Jones,  Paul Cook, and Glen Matlock (later to be replaced by Sid Vicious)—were  brought  together  by  the  cultural impresario  Malcolm  McLaren.  Between  the  cultivated  attitude  of  the  players  themselves,  the  aggressive  management  of  McLaren,  and  the  tremendous success  of  their  era-defining  album  Never  Mind  the Bollocks Here’s the Sex Pistols, the band embodied the punk spirit and coloured the worlds of music, fashion, youth culture, and design forever.
