Cheap Music: The 62 Cent Sex Pistols Record

Every now and again I’ll run into cheap music that I absolutely have to tell people about. My goal with Sell Out Records is to talk about music on a regular basis, and recommend albums, songs, videos, and more to those that may want to pick up a record or two. Music has changed my life and will change yours. Today we begin a new segment called Cheap Music, or as the picture says. On this day I found the seminal release from The Sex Pistols, and for 62 cents (used). You can’t beat that, you just can’t. “Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols” by The Sex Pistols is the one record that all punk rockers have to listen to at least once. I even signed a band based on how closely they resembled the sound of these guys. The Sex Pistols may only have put out one album, but their legacy influences so much music it’s ridiculous. Mention the name Johnny Rotten or Sid Vicious and people of any musical taste will know immediately what you're talking about. Even though Steve Jones, Paul Cook, and Glen Matlock are all members, they don't seem to get the same kind of notoriety that Sid and Johnny received.

On this inexpensive record, you can hear one hell of an album, and it will change your perspective on what
nevermind the bollockspunk was and is today. It’s poppy without being awful, it’s snotty without being trendy, and even though it’s decades old, still doesn’t get a lot of respect on rock radio. If you don’t have “Never Mind The Bollocks” in your collection, here is your shot at getting it for under a buck. Click here, and get yourself this classic on the cheap.If you like UK punk, or the genre in general, you'll find that this former #1 chart buster is still relevant today. From "Pretty Vacant" to "Anarchy in the UK",  you will find that this is still going to get spins in your record player. Even if you aren't a huge punk rock fan, you have to at least give credit where credit is due. The Sex Pistols are not just another fly by night act, they were snotty, rude, and gave people a new kind of antihero. Even though their story has been told many times, and The Ramones thought that they stole the idea of punk from them, there is no debating that thi is a mandatory record to own. If you have a buck, you have yourself a piece of rock and roll history.
