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

Misheard Lyrics:

"Friggin In The Riggin'"

The figurehead was a horrid man with a mouthful of dead man penis.

"Holidays in the Sun"
Misheard Lyrics:
Clintaphoria
It's too much paranoia
There's too much traffic
So when will we fall
And now I gotta reason - it's no real reason - to be waiting : the Berlin wall
I gotta go over the Wall, I don't understand this myth at all,
These herd-like like beat-moving chumps
Cheat, die alone, cheater since you seen me
Original Lyrics:
Claustrophobia, there's too much paranoia
There's too many closets I went in before
And now I gotta reason - it's no real reason - to be waiting : the Berlin wall
I gotta go over the Wall, I don't understand this bit at all,
This third-rate, B-movie show
Cheap dialogue/cheap, essential scenery

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
Why:
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.

K., listed in some reports with a blank line where the title should be.

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.
