God Save the Queen's revival

British punk group The Sex Pistols will be re-releasing one of their songs towards the end of next month.
God Save the Queen's first appearance coincided with Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee.
British punk group The Sex Pistols will be re-releasing one of their songs towards the end of next month.

The song in question is God Save the Queen. The Sex Pistols first issued the single in 1977.

The punk band were also responsible for such singles as Holiday in the Sun, Anarchy in the UK and Pretty Vacant.

Back in the 1970s, God Save the Queen's appearance coincided with Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee.

A record containing their work called Jubilee actually charted in 2002, which was Elizabeth's Golden Jubilee year.

Their re-release move means God Save the Queen will be made available 35 years on from its original appearance.

The new edition is set to come out on the 28th of May, while the actual anniversary of the Queen being crowned falls on June 2nd.

In the 1970s the BBC actually denied God Save the Queen airtime at one point.
