An angry, snarling classic that only gets nastier with age
1977 | Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.

Despite the various members’ attempts to tarnish its memory with everything from half-assed reunion tours, professions of love for American AOR bands and appearances in commercials for British butter companies, Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols continues to conjure the heady days of a genre-defining zeitgeist that was sonically corrosive and improbably influential. While the Sex Pistols’ role in the cultural landscape that was late ’70s Britain under Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has… read more »

Overrated Classic

Nyabinghi

Even when this was first released I felt it was still a little too slick. Still worth getting for historical value alone. There are some decent songs(Pretty Vacant, God Save the Queen) but it can't help being overshadowed by the greatness of The Clash, The Buzzcocks, Gang Of Four or the Jam. The Fall rules. Check out the film, D.O.A., which shows them on their aborted first US tour through the American South. Great Stuff!

Vicious and Rotten

I played the crap out of this album in the early 80's. It "gets the angst out", as is apparent just by listening to the song samples. Beyond that, taken as a cohesive whole, this album ranks up there as one of the true punk rock classics. It defines the genre and spits it back in your face. Get every track. Turn up the volume, sing along, and never mind the bollocks!

30 Shocking Albums

By Wondering Sound Staff, Contributor

Now that Halloween's over, we decided to shift the conversation away from cobwebs and costumes to an evergreen guide featuring eMusic's most shocking albums; the kind of records that have caused riots and revolutions. Or at the very least, the "Well I never!" banning of album art so socially unacceptable you'd think it was designed to leave us all scarred for life. Not just obvious nods, either, from blood-stained black metal and pulse-raising punk rock… more »

Six Degrees of Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols

By Jason Pettigrew, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »
