Sex Pistols – Anarchy In The UK

ANARCHY IN THE UK Lyrics

Right! NOW! ha ha ha ha ha

I am an anti-christ
I am an anarchist
Don’t know what I want but
I know how to get it
I wanna destroy the passer by cos I

I wanna BE anarchy!
No dogs body!

Anarchy for the U.K it’s coming sometime and maybe
I give a wrong time stop a traffic line
your future dream is a shopping scheme

cos I, I wanna BE anarchy!
In the city

How many ways to get what you want
I use the best I use the rest
I use the enemy
I use anarchy cos I

I wanna BE anarchy!
THE ONLY WAY TO BE!

Is this the M.P.L.A
Or is this the U.D.A
Or is this the I.R.A
I thought it was the U.K or just
another country
another council tenancy

I wanna be anarchy
and I wanna be anarchy
Know what I mean
And I wanna be anarchist!
Get PISSED DESTROY !

Anarchy in the U.K.” is a song by the English punk rock band The Sex Pistols. It was released as the band’s debut single on 26 November 1976 and was featured on their only album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols. „Anarchy in the U.K.” is number 53 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

In the documentary The Filth and the Fury, John Lydon described the composition of the song’s opening lyrics, explaining that the best rhyme he could devise for the first line, „I am an Antichrist„, was the second line, „I am an anarchist”.

The lyrics endorse a particularly sensational, violent concept of anarchy that reflected the pervasive sense of embittered anger, confusion, restlessness, economic frustration and social alienation which was being felt by a generation of disenfranchised youth amidst the repression and squalor of British life in the 1970s. Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren considered the song „a call to arms to the kids who believe that rock and roll was taken away from them. It’s a statement of self rule, of ultimate independence.” In 2007, the surviving members (not including original Pistols’ bassist Glen Matlock) re-recorded „Anarchy in the U.K.” for the video game Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock because the masters could not be found.
