The Sex Pistols’ Anarchy In The UK has been named the most influential record of the 1970s.
Fresh from his stint on I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, John Lydon has come out top in the poll by Q magazine.
It beat Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and the Donna Summer disco classic I Feel Love in the list of the decade’s landmark records.
Released in November 1976, Anarchy In The UK caused instant outrage, compounded by the punk rockers’ infamous four-letter outburst on Bill Grundy’s Today programme.
“The 1970s are often remembered for disco, flares and platforms,” a Q spokesman said.
“The Sex Pistols unleashed themselves on an unsuspecting world, giving birth to a whole new musical movement which will continue to inspire musicians for generations to come.”
Bohemian Rhapsody, which topped the charts in 1975, was second in the poll compiled for a Q magazine Seventies special.
Other records which made the top 10 included Get It On by T Rex and Paranoid by Black Sabbath.
