God Save the Queen/Anarchy in the UK

 During the 25th  anniversary of the Queen the Sex Pistols rented a boat and went down the Thames full blast with No Future/God Save the Queen. The authorities, always in favour of free speech, had the cops attack the boat. Someone in the video shouts "They arrested Malcolm." Sure enough Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood were hauled away by the cops. Somehow the Pistols managed to escape.


It's hard to believe that ANARCHY IN THE UK  is 37 years old.  Still great to see and hear. This one song - in spite of its stereotypical view of anarchism - did more to open up anarchism to  the young than 50 years of pamphletting.
