Sex Pistols To Re-Release “God Save The Queen” Single

The Sex Pistols will be re-releasing “God Save The Queen” on May 27 ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The single was originally released in 1977 around the time of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee and the controversy surrounding it led to the band being dropped by A&M. The label also destroyed 25,000 copies of the single, making the remaining copies rare collectibles. After the group were dropped by A&M, they signed with Virgin Records to officially release the track. Despite being banned by the BBC, it reached No. 1 on the U.K.’s NME chart. It also hit No. 2 on the U.K. Singles chart, but rumors suggest that the ranking was manipulated to keep it off the top spot. The A&M version of the reissue will include the b-side “No Feeling” and it will be limited to 1,977 copies. The Virgin Records version will include the b-side “Did You No Wrong” and it will be limited to 4,000 copies.
