Former Sex Pistols wildman Johnny Rotten says he doesn't care about the chart performance of Sex Pistols' upcoming re-release of God Save The Queen.
He says he's "only responsible for collecting the royalties".
The single will hit UK shops on May 27 to coincide with the Queen's Golden Jubilee.
Johnny Rotten, aka John Lydon, told NME.COM: "Virgin Records are releasing the single. I'm only responsible for collecting the royalties. I made the thing. I don't mind it being heard again but I have no interest in chart positions.
"There is a nonsense, all this betting on whether it will be number one or not."
