The Cribs say Sex Pistols are ‘relevant today’

Ryan Jarman joins efforts to fire 'God Save The Queen' to top of charts

The CribsRyan Jarman has backed the campaign to get Sex Pistols’God Save The Queen’ to Number One.

NME.COM is campaigning to send the record to Number One next week after it was cheated out of the top spot back in 1977.

’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 30 years ago.

We want to right that wrong by encouraging everyone to buy the record from October 8, the week it’s reissued on vinyl.

Either head down to your local record shop from Monday or pre-order it now from 7digital.com/nme, and it will count to next week’s chart.

“It’s such a massively powerful song,” declared Jarman. “I used to listen to punk songs all the time when I was young, and this one is the ultimate punk song. It’s still so relevant today.”
