The album has influenced many bands and musicians, and the industry in general. In particular, the album's raw energy, and Johnny Rotten 's sneering delivery and "half-singing", are often considered game-changing. It is frequently listed as the most influential punk album, and one of the most important albums of all time. By the time of its release, the Sex Pistols were controversial, having sworn on live TV, been fired from two record labels, and been banned from playing live in some parts of Britain. The album title added to that controversy, with some people finding the word " bollocks " offensive. Many record stores refused to carry it and some record charts refused to list its title, showing just a blank space instead.
The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band that formed in London in They were responsible for initiating the punk movement in the United Kingdom and inspiring many later punk and alternative rock musicians. Although their initial career lasted just two and a half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols , they are regarded as one of the most influential acts in the history of popular music. Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious in early Under the management of Malcolm McLaren , the band attracted controversies that both captivated and appalled Britain. Through an obscenity-laced television interview in December and their May single " God Save the Queen ", attacking Britons' social conformity and deference to the Crown, they precipitated the punk rock movement.

Guitarist Steve Jones plays a shady private detective who - through a series of set piece acts - uncovers the truth about the band. Singer and frontman Johnny Rotten refused to have anything to do with the film, stating that it was "a pile of rubbish" and "Malcolm's vision of what he believed - not true in any form". The movie tells a stylised fictional account of the formation, rise and subsequent break-up of the band, from the point of view of their then-manager McLaren. In addition, the film also includes appearances by musician Dave Dee and reporter Alan Jones as themselves.

That is absolutely incredible I think that's the most I've ever heard of. I noticed you used 2 different languages to a guy who said something in English then said he didn't understand your reply. Very amusing! Great sense of humour I like that.
