Debbie Harry speaks as 'God Save The Queen' aims for chart return
NME.COM is backing a campaign to take the record back to Number One next week after it was cheated out of the top spot 30 years ago.
We want to right that wrong and are encouraging everyone to buy the record this week (from October 8) as the track is reissued on vinyl.
Either head down the record shop now or you can buy it from 7digital.com or other downloaders like iTunes.
Pledging her support, Harry said she backed efforts to get ’God Save The Queen’ back into the charts.
“It’s a great song,” she said. “I’d definitely support it.”
Harry added that the song demonstrated how punk got its edge, something that is missing today.
“I think the difference between punk in the US and UK was the politics,” she said. “In the UK it drove a lot of the great music. Sadly it’s less like that now, the UK is becoming really Americanised.”
