Greatest Sex Pistols Songs


The Top TenXW

1Anarchy In the U.K.

35 years later and this song will always beat the new crap such as Justin Bieber and One Direction any day. Steve Jones has to be one of the most underrated guitarists of all time. Johnny Rotten also has great vocals in this, which adds power to this song.

It is only one word that can describe this song: FANTASTIC!

I like the Sex Pistols ATTITUDE!

A fantastic punk song!

2God Save the Queen

So much raw power in this song. By far their best track.

Amazing song of the Sex Pistols! So disrespectful, a political and social bomb! The introduction is amazing! Clearly their best!

God save the queen! we mean it man!

The first punk song I heard and it made an enormous impression on me. God save the queen reached number 2 on the swedish single top list on the summer of 1977.

Yay, energetic and fantastic songs... Sex pistol is the best.

Brilliant opening line: " A cheap holiday in other's people misery."

This Song Is Very Cool, I'm Laughing Overload After Hear This Song...

A cynical take on the hubris of youth. Powerful, driven, fast. Great punk song!


Best song of their, and the only record on NMTB to feature Sid. Epic!

It's just an awesome song. The guitar at the start of the song... One of the best intros I've heard

EMI is the best composition of Pistols. It has all elements of the best Punk song

This one's definitely the best off of the "Bollocks" album.

Super-charged from the start, the full-throttle 'Problems' never lets up. Johnny Rotten lays out his mission statement: "Eat your heart out on a plastic tray / You don't do what you want, then you'll fade away / You won't find me working nine to five / It's too much fun a being alive." Ultimately, it comes down to the chorus refrain of "the problem is you," which gains greater resonance at the end of the song, as the word is repeated in an increasingly bored tone that drives home the point.

8No Feelings

I've got no feelings, for anybody else, except myself, my beautiful self!

Watch footage of this track at the Dallas gig 78... Powerhouse!

10I Wanna Be Me

Excellent recording of them in their prime, also Matlocks bass line is a killer on this track.

The Newcomers

?Something Else

It's a shame that hardly anyone knows of this song :). Some of Sids greatest work.

Juz like oldies but punk element still in this song.. What.. I love it

The Contenders


This is obviously one of the best Sex Pistols songs. It is the most melodic of "Nevermind The Bollocks Here's The Sex Pistols" but it is also fuoll of rage!

Epic song! Almost better than Anarchy in the Uk

13My Way

It's Sid, Not Sex Pistols. but what a good song

May not be Sex Pistols but it screams raw power

14Did You No Wrong

I listened to lots of Sex Pistols songs, and I really mean lots... And I still haven't found 1 other song that surpasses this one man

This song is mainly great whacking, better perhaps than Anarchy (but Anarchy is very good too) instrumentál solo is simply incredible and Johnny's voice is traditionally "bad" (it means perfect)

15I Wanna Be Your Dog
17Silly Thing
18Friggin' In The Riggin'

This is very funny and full of rage violence and swearing. The perfect drinking song and it is much better than god save the queen
