Greatest Sex Pistols Songs


The Top Ten

1 Anarchy 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.

A fantastic punk song!

I like the Sex Pistols ATTITUDE!

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

2 God Save the Queen

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

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

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.

3 Bodies

She was a girl from America
She started playing Fortnite


Based on a sad, but true story.

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

4 Holidays in the Sun

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

The most underrated exhilarating SP song

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

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

5 Pretty Vacant

That opening guitar riff just draws you in!

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


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

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

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

Goodbye A&M

7 Seventeen should be the top 5

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!

8 Problems

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.

9 No Feelings

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

Just blew my brains laughing

A nice little middle finger to... well, everyone - dlbk03

I made a remix of best love songs. this was the only song on it - RecklessGreed

10 Submission

Epic song! Almost better than Anarchy in the Uk

The Contenders

11 New York

So much energy very underrated in my opinion

12 I Wanna Be Me

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

13 Liar
14 My Way

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

May not be Sex Pistols but it screams raw power

15 Silly Thing
16 Did 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

Their best song, hands down. Love the guitar on this song.

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)

17 Einmal War Belsen Bortrefflish

Should be vortrefflich, I guess?

18 Lonely Boy
19 Friggin' 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

Made to shock, classic SP

20 Road Runner

Great, with Lydon (Rotten) saying: 2I don't know the f***** words."

21 No One is Innocent

The chorus has a really good chant

22 I Wanna Be Your Dog
23 (I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone
24 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


25 C'mon Everybody
26 No Fun
27 Who Killed Bambi
28 Satellite
29 Belsen Was a Gas

I only wish this ended up on Never Mind the Bollocks - dlbk03
