The Sex Pistols Packed It In 35 Years Ago Today [VIDEO]

The Sex Pistols burned so hot that it was inevitable that they’d burn out quickly. First off, if you weren’t there, imagine the hype that surrounds Justin Bieber. The Sex Pistols had ten times that (especially in Britain). Most of the publicity was negative, but the media accepted the Pistols as successors to a “Beatlemania” type frenzy and they didn’t miss an opportunity to write about the band. More, including the story in the Sex Pistols own words, after the jump.

35 years ago today the Sex Pistols packed it in after a very snake-bit U.S. tour.  It’s important to note that the Pistols were more than a ‘band’, they were in fact the face of a movement, not unlike the Nirvana led grunge surge of the 90′s.  There were bands that were far more creative musically, but there were none more outrageous than the Sex Pistols.  Their music output was basically one epic album (Never Mind The Bollocks-included below) and a bunch of throwaway stuff afterward.  If you have some time, check out the Sex Pistols in their own words with the movie “The Filth & The Fury” below:
