Every once in a while, when the Sex Pistols cross my mind, I think, why them? They sound an awful lot like a rock n' roll band with a bad singer. What set them apart? Beyond the fact that they were brilliantly anti-marketed, wrote good songs, had flippant attitudes, and were among the first of the UK punk bands, were they all that inventive? Militant? Honest?
Who really cares? All I know is that I'd never seen the video above before tonight, and it reminded me of what a good band they were, whatever their standing in the punk annals.
