PISTOLS GUNNING FOR GOLDEN JUBILEE

The punk legends will make the track available again in time for the Queen's Golden Jubilee...

Sex Pistols will re-release their classic ‘GOD SAVE THE QUEEN’ on May 27, according to reports.

The group, arguably the most controversial of all time, originally released ‘God Save The Queen’ at the beginning of June 1977 – at exactly the same time as The Queen celebrated her Silver Jubilee, marking 25 years on the throne.

Now, the track has been given a release date of May 27, with a Sex Pistols box set to follow on June 3, the date of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

Bassist Glen Matlock said told the Daily Record: “This will make my bank manager happy. I think with the charts clogged up with acts such as Hear’Say, it’s time the Sex Pistols returned.”

A spokesperson for the Sex Pistols record company, Virgin, is currently unavailable to confirm the re-release.

As previously reported on NME.COM the Sex Pistols are also considering live shows to celebrate punk’s 25th anniversary.
