Band Name Origins:

  • It was when Malcom McLaren wanted a band to promote his clothes from his and Vivienne Westwood's shop "sex". He wanted Sex cos it was the name of his shop and he also wanted it to be like 'Sexy Young Assassins' so he thought of Pistols as the assassin bit. So you get The Sex Pistols. This is true as it's on the Filth and the Fury (Pistol's DVD). Submitted by: PunkRocker666
  • It comes from part of a plant. The 'sex organs' of a plant are called it's 'sex pistals'. Malcolm McLaren simply changed the spelling to 'Pistols' to make it more aggressive. Submitted by: Klif Fuller

Song Lyrics That Mention Other Songs:

"God Save The Queen"
The Song Lyrics:
God save the Queen
The fascist regime
Song They Mention:

Submitted by: Red Ruffcorn

Opening Lines:
God save the Queen

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Anarchy In The U.K."
The Lyrics:
I am an Anti-Christ
I am an anarchist
Don't know what I want but I know how to get it
I wanna destroy passerby
Cause I wanna be anarchy
The opening words say it all. If this ain't scary, or at least scary enough to shock or at least turn some heads, what will? When I was in college during some weekend retreats some of my friends in the cabin dining room would dare each other to start singing this punk classic just to have fun with a shock affect. Campy fun.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"A really crazy television appearance."
They were the last minute fill-ins for Queen. Johnny Rotten swore a lot and the guy in charge of the show was allegedly drunk, so he just kept encouraging the language.
Submitted by: G
"Rebellious attitude"
The Sex Pistols didn't get a record contract until 1977 because of their lewd behavior such as vomiting on people, wrecking studio rooms, and even getting arrested during concerts.
