Nine Inch Nails: ”God Save The Queen’ is an amazing song’

Trent Reznor backs campaign to get Sex Pistols to Number One

Nine Inch Nails have joined the campaign to get Sex Pistols’God Save The Queen’ to Number One, claiming that while they’re not normally interested in retro campaigns, this is a special case.

NME.COM is running a campaign to send the record back to Number One next week after it was cheated out of the top spot 30 years ago.

’God Save The Queen’ was denied its rightful place at Number One because the authorities feared the punk anthem would spoil the Queen’s Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977.

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 his support, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor explained he felt the punk anthem was a special case and deserved the top spot.

“I’m normally not one for looking back in time at music, but that’s an amazing song,” he told NME.COM. “Sign me up for the campaign to get it to Number One!”
