Never Mind The ********, Here's The *** Pistols, or simply Never Mind The ********, is the only official studio album recorded by the *** Pistols.
Johnny Rotten's rabid, foaming delivery and his bitterly sarcastic attacks on pretentious affectation and the very foundations of British society were all carried out in the most confrontational, impolite manner possible.
Most imitators of the Pistols' angry nihilism missed the point. Underneath their shock tactics were social critiques carefully designed for maximum impact. Never Mind the ******** exemplified the frustration, rage, and dissatisfaction of that the British working class had with the establishment.
The Pistols paved the way for countless other bands to make similarly rebellious statements, but very few were as daring or effective. The only band who was as nasty, sarcastic, or effective like the Pistols were The Dead Kennedys.
It's easy to see how the band's energy, overwhelmingly snotty attitude, and Rotten's furious ranting sparked a musical revolution. Those qualities are still strong even today. Never Mind the ******** is simply one of the greatest records of all time.
