This clip of Classic Albums features interviews of the Sex Pistols talking about the simplistic and unique qualities that made up their historic album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols. When the English punk rockers originally formulated as a band, they were as raw as any band could be.
Pistols drummer Paul Cook says, “We couldn’t play at the time. We were still learning our instruments and we just wanted to be in an band and take it from that.” However, what they lacked in talent they made up for with their unrefined lyrics and catchy guitar riffs. Guitarist Steve Jones praises Johnny Rotten’s songwriting abilities, commenting on how good he was at such a young age.
Learn more about what made this album so significant in rock culture on the network premiere of Classic Albums: Sex Pistols this Wednesday, April 25th starting at 9/8c on AXS TV.
