History of the Sex Pistols: Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious

History of the Sex Pistols: Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious Script written by Craig Butler. Formed in London, England in 1972 as The Strand, the Sex Pistols were the true embodiment of the punk rock aesthetic. Together, the iconic lineup of Johnny Rotten on vocals, Sid Vicious on bass, Steve Jones on guitar and Paul Cook on drums were the first punk band to go mainstream – despite intense controversy that surrounded them. The band was together only two years, and released just one album – "Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols" – but, they became influential to all that followed. Even after Sid Vicious’ untimely death from a heroin overdose in 1979, remaining members play on. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look back at the history of the Sex Pistols.
