LIMITED EDITION – 250 ONLY
This is a “Custom Vinyl Records” artwork lyric design of the classic “Anarchy in the UK” by “The Sex Pistols”. Created by artist Jamie Wood, this Limited Edition poster is based on our vinyl edition.
The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band formed in London in 1975. Although they initially lasted just two and a half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, they are considered one of the most influential acts in the history of popular music, having initiated a punk movement in the United Kingdom, and inspired many later punk rock, heavy metal and alternative rock musicians.
Anarchy in the U.K.” was released as the band’s debut single on 26 November 1976 and was later featured on their album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols.
The lyrics endorse a particularly sensational, violent concept of anarchy that reflected the pervasive sense of embittered anger, confusion, restlessness, economic frustration and social alienation which was being felt by a generation of disenfranchised youth amidst the declining economic situation and bland music scene of the mid-1970s. Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren considered the song “a call to arms to the kids who believe that rock and roll was taken away from them. It’s a statement of self rule, of ultimate independence
