Here's a little Sex Pistols. An incredible, violently energetic, classic punk band...the greatest British punk band of all time, in my opinion. Pick up "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols" (1977). An unrelenting, addictive classic of the genre. Johnny Rotten's catchy, acidic vocals and and bassist Sid Vicious's maniacal stage presence and sensational tragic lifestyle are a perfect match. Here's a live performance of "Holidays in The Sun", the first rack from the album. Enjoy.

The Clash are the greatest British Punk band of all time, hands down.
The Sex pistols were probably the most influential punk band in the British scene - thier "The Filth and The Fury" interview on Bill Grundy on ITV prime time was the event that put Punk rock into the mainstream
but really they were just a New York Dolls tribute act.

Having said that "Anarchy in the UK" and "God Save the Queen" are classic songs of rage, indespensible.

The Clash. A great band as well...incredble songwriting and great depth to their music. The reason why I chose The Sex Pistols was based on their energy level alone and their huge influence on punk. I love The Clash though.
