    Punk Begins and Ends With This CD

    There's a lot of bands that set out to categorize themselves as some type of punk. But the truth is the fact that punk began and ended with Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols. The album may be notorious for it's sailor-mouth lyrics, but it's an honest representation of the scene they were coming from. While it's missing some of the lyrical input and musicianship that Sid Vicious would add later during the live performances, it's still a brutal testament to the punk ideal. Johnny Rotten's screaming vocals make it seem like more of a speech than an album, and the surprising musicianship presented by Steve Jones and Glen Matlock make this, if you will, considerably listenable. While it still takes an appreciation for this style of music (and a strong stomach), it's easy to wade through the media's representation of the Sex Pistols as rebels who cut themselves and didn't care, creating a one-way street to what's truly there: punk. Whether you regard punk as a political policy, a personal ideal, or even a fashion statement, this is the holy grail for all who believe themselves to be punks. It is the Home & Garden magazine for those who aspire to parade down King's Way, the Bible for those who hold close the true ideals and educated fanaticism of punk. As for the quality of the actual recording... it is the punk record. Take that as you will; punk isn't punk if it's perfect.

    They Could Play

    It's always been hip to say The Pistols couldn't play in order to establish that they were not maestros like, say, Pink Floyd; that proficiency wasn't the idea behind the band. it certainly was not. But Steve Jones playing guitar is a savage and beautiful thing. It's the aural equivelant to eating a spoonfull of frosting right out of a can, a rush of power that an Eric Clapton could never give me.

    Johnny Rotten sets the example every kid should see- fitting in and doing as you're told is a sucker's game, and the quicker you figure it out, the better off you'll be.

    A cheap holiday in other people's misery.....

    "Never Mind the Bollocks" is one of the most controversial albums in rock. All boring "origins of punk" debates aside, this album (to me anyway) is a lot of fun. I guess you have to be a certain type of person to like it. If you think life is a joke, the way I do, then this album could be your album for life. If you take yourself incredibly seriously, don't bother. The abrasive production may be too much for Kenny G listeners, but there is no denying the melodic strength and harmonies in these songs. The lyrics are great, but the backing tracks are the main reason I listen to the album. "Never Mind the Bollocks" is the album to hear when you want to be blown away by sheer power, nothing more or nothing less. 'Nuff said.

    Am I missing somthing?

    Everyone isw always on about how this album is so freaking good and so on, but I find it rather lacking that. I mean it is not horrible, but anyone trying to act a punk wears a shirt with their logo on it. that is total B.S. to see a man walking down the street with that. I mean my fav. punk bands are The Clash, The Exploited, Minor Threat, Reagon Youth, Misfits, Black Flag, Ect. Yes The Sex Pistols changed punk, but now any wannbe with a wad of cash can be "punk". I am sorry to say, but there are more fake punks then real ones. Being a punk is not just about how you dress or what you listen to and people need to realize that.

    Just shut up and buy this album...

    Basically that's all that needs to be said. And take this from a real punk, you must own this album. The Sex Pistols were the creators of punk rock... NOT THE RAMONES OR OTHER AMERICAN BANDS! Get this album!

    One of the founding fathers of British punk

    I dont believe that many people grasp the importance of the 77' punk revolution. Yes its true that punk started in 76, but the overseas british revolt was heard much louder. The Pistols, though they only released a couple of records in the 70's, they were one of the key factors of making punk what it was. Though it is debatable which band is better, the clash or the sex pistols, but you really cant decide, because both ran the punk era of the british 70's with passion and hate mixed into searing 3 chord riffs and snarling vocals. Definetely one of the best albums of all time.

    God Save Whoever doesn't buy this!!!

    This is by far the greatest punk album of all time. This is so good, I would have paid $50 for it. And I know punk. So if you know what is good for you, you will buy Nevermind the Bollocks Here's the Sex Pistols today!!!

    Still Stunning After 30 Years

    It is hardly possible for those who weren't around in the late '70s to grasp the impact of the Sex Pistols on rock music. But you don't need a degree in music history to feel the power of this album. It is magnificent--ferocious, honest, intelligent, and--surprisingly to many--catchy. Every song but one ("Seventeen") is brilliant. Regrettably, the CD transfer is not the best (it is dim in the high frequencies). Let's hope this album gets the remastering it deserves.

    NTMB

    This album owns, there's really nothing else to it. On a side note: anyone who reccomends Jimmy Eat World to a Sex Pistols fan has some definite misconceptions about what SP is about.

    Great band, sad exploitation

    This is their only true album and amidst all the exploitation lps made it seems to shine, however it cannot compare to the clarity of the cuts on 7". Lets just hope that the name of this band will someday no longer be defamed.

    Rude, Crude and Classic

    The definitive punk album and one of the greatest records ever made. Hugely influencial and forever fierce, Never Mind The Bollocks is a landmark album in music history.

    smashmouth punk rock!

    from the moment this punk classic starts, you know you are in for one of the angriest ride an album will ever take you. they spit on the queen and the british goverment to name a few. but the reason you should buy it is because it's simply outstanding.

    Stay in your parents basement DC

    Hey ''A listener, a rock critic working in DC''. Pull your head out of your butt. The Pistols are not classic rock and they did not ''Well, do it again''. Jesus, you sound like some middle age loser who lives with his mother. If they did it again, when did they do it the first time? What album are you refering to? I would love to know. Melodic? Where is the melody? Angst? How about this. The Pistols made these songs because they were announcing to the world that they wanted to take people like you and kick their teeth in. For those of you who have not heard the album, it is still pissed off and raging today. Buy it and you'll understand why this so called rock critic from DC is a total tool.
