Song of the day for November 26, 2023

1 min read

Today’s song is the punk classic Anarchy in The U.K. by the Sex Pistols. On November 26, 1976, the Sex Pistols released their debut single, “Anarchy in the UK.” The foundational punk song, which later appeared on the band’s album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols, became an anthem for disenfranchised youth around the world. Marking the group’s only release under EMI Records (they were dropped two months later after a profanity-laced appearance on live TV), the influential track peaked in the UK Top 40 and would later be covered by the likes of Megadeth and Mötley Crüe. In more recent decades, it has ranked on both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list, as well as on Rolling Stones’ 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
