Sex Pistols / Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrated with Pistol and Original Recordings

Danny Boyle’s Pistol series will air on Disney+ on 31 May 2022. Sex Pistols: The Original Recordings will be released on 27 May via UMC, the first time the original recordings have been available in over a decade.

The Sex Pistols famously released God Save The Queen in 1977, coinciding with the Queen’s silver jubilee. The track was a highlight for the short-lived band. The Pistols had been banned from the airwaves and dropped by their label A&M, but they signed with Richard Branson’s Virgin label, and the song was a smash.

The song reached Number 1 on the UK’s NME chart but appeared at Number 2 on the Official UK Singles chart, leading to accusations that the song was purposely kept off the top spot. For the only time in chart history, the track was listed as a blank to avoid offence to the establishment.
