"God Save the Queen" was the second single released by the punk rock band Sex Pistols. It was released during Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee in 1977 and reached number two in the British charts. Its lyrics, as well as the cover, were controversial at the time, and the BBC refused to play the song. It is claimed that "God Save The Queen" out-sold the UK Number 1 record of the week (The First Cut is the Deepest by Rod Stewart). At that time it was unimaginable that this track could have been allowed to reach Number 1. In the chart rundown on that week's "Top of The Pops" (the weekly TV programme on the BBC that covered the charts) it was mentioned in chart rundown as a "a record by a group chosing to call themselves the Sex Pistols". The God Save The Queen Songfacts reports that in 2011 Record Collector magazine compiled its Top 50 most collectable records, and top of the list came the A&M release of this song - if you happen to have a copy the good news is it worth $12,000 (£8,000).
Sex Pistols are a punk rock band that formed in London, England, United Kingdom in 1975, coming out of the ashes of The Strand. They are, together with The Clash, responsible for initiating the punk movement in the United Kingdom and inspiring many later punk and alternative rock musicians. Although their initial career lasted just two-and-a-half years and produced only four singles plus one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols, they are regarded as one of the most influential acts in the history of modern popular music.
